If anybody needs a ride to the underground market, I have a car (now 
with license plates!).  Last time, Jake drove everyone to the market and 
I drove everyone back.  But this time, I think Jake's out of town for at 
least another week or so.

At the last Underground Market, Fabian said that during the day they 
were the only vendor selling drinks.  As such, they got 100% of the 
drink sales.  Apparently, all the other food and drink people show up on 
the evenings.  My point is that we should continue to go during the day 
to repeat that.

Labels for the bottles are a given.  I'm surprised we don't have those 
on there already.  QR codes also seem like a great idea.  My input about 
all that would be to register a web domain for TasteBridge, even if it 
just redirects to the TasteBridge page, just so we can track hits to 
TasteBridge directly.

Also, there's no legal reason that Noisebridge/TasteBridge can't sell 
the kombucha online, as long as the money goes back to Noisebridge. 
Holding a fundraiser in the form of selling kombucha will not affect our 
tax-exempt status as long as the money goes back to Noisebridge.

I am willing to pay for a pack of Avery labels (or other brand of 
labels) for the printing.  Avery #5164 is apparently the usual size for
