byob takes on a whole new meaning….

by liza darwin

B.Y.O.B. parties have been filling up our weekends for years. But we've just found a new kind of B.Y.O.B. event that involves a little less alcohol... and a little more art.

The acronym stands for Bring Your Own Beamer (also known as a projector screen) and for the past few months, this one-night-only show has been spreading like wildfire. These events have already hit cities like NYC, LA, Paris, Boston and Seoul, but there's no reason you can't have in your town, too. It's easy, it's fun, and it's totally free.

All you have to do is find a space, recruit some friends, and ask them to bring their own projectors (obviously) because there's no art hanging on the walls- it's all being beamed up. Summer's the perfect time to do it, because you can even use the side of your neighbor's house as a makeshift outdoor museum.

Suddenly, your laptop screen just got a whole lot more boring.
