    Mods, don't kill this thread, Canstruction is a fabulous New York event, and the admittance price is a can of food, which goes to charity.

    Alonzo-ny, has your firm done this before? I didn't go last year but i went two years ago, and I still remember Can Cobra . ..

    Thumbs up

    This is a great event. I've been every year for the last few years, admission is one can of food, but this isn't necessary, although its a nice and convient reminder, there are many people that need the charity, and giving food along with clothing is the very best thing to give. There will be people that will be very fortunate for these donations. That said the exhibits are also excellent many pushing the envelope.

    This is one of the most creative annual events in the city. I know the DC office of my firm competes. I'm not sure if our NY office is doing it. I hope so!

    Great tree -- everybody go see it!

    I also liked the polar bear, the shark, and the car . . .Marilyn Monroe didn't get built, it seems, and the Domino effect had already partially collapsed .. .
