@gaditb Ah! You're looking for a linked-data serialization format that doesn't have to be linearly scanned to look up properties?
Some of this seems to overlap with the design goals of Cap'n Proto, which is sometimes a little convoluted ("near and far pointers", for example), but *relatively* straightforward.
Other than that, I'm not aware of too much work in the space. (Not to be interpreted as evidence of it not existing, though.) Good luck!
@djsundog Also, if you're doing an event with people who can chip in, we found at least one amenable place on Airbnb as an event space that happened to have a few bedrooms. (And proceeded to host a couple-day "conference" that was fun for a few dozen people.)
Anyway, it had a large kitchen as part of the space, which worked for several people to prepare foods simultaneously, but only like two ovens - probably not something you'd run a class in.
@djsundog It turns out that there are a number of places that do this in Chicago, at least. (Not colleges, but commercial kitchens you can rent out for events and whatnot.)
I think there's something weird about insurance or something, though, so although a group I hang out with has done it once or twice, it's not as easy as you'd like. (Though I suspect it's easier with experience.)

@bobby_newmark Since I mentioned it when I did it, the single wrap of gaff tape on the CRKT has finally worn through enough to make me replace it. (Looks like about 6 months in my pockets, which are a... somewhat inhospitable environment.)
A couple minutes with some isopropyl and then a quick bit of soap and water and another wrap of tape and it should be good for a while.

@djsundog I think peanuts being a severe allergen for an increasing number of people makes it hard to handle at bakeries and whatnot. Which is understandable, but disappointing.
(I don't know why they've declined in mass-produced-far-away things, but it could be the same: harder to clean a line every time you switch? Or just decreased demand?)
@iliana It does not.
