You know, I kind of like this idea. It is a bit insane (though a point
of pride) that we've kept the place open for years, and a shutdown of
a few days would let us simultaneously hack together the entrance,
signal a red letter day in terms of stuff being kept on the hacker
shelves, etc, do a ridiculously deep cleanup, bond a little bit, and
have a big party.

I scribbled down a list of things we could do -- feel free to add your own.
