Can I get a refund? Yes, up to one week prior to the event! This helps us better manage our waitlist. We are not able toaccommodatelast minute cancelations since they are tricky from an administrative standpoint.Request a refund here up to one week prior to the event!
When should I arrive? Our event starts at 6 PM. Please try not to come by before then- while we love to see your friendly faces, we need that time to set up & get everything readybeforethings get going. You'll just be sitting around awkwardly otherwise & that's no fun for anyone.
What if the event is sold out or ticket sales have ended, can I just show up at the door? Unfortunately not! If we're sold out that means we are really sold out! You can certainly add yourself to the waitlist, but if you haven't received an actual ticket from Eventbrite for this event, we won't be able to let you in the door. If you're seeing ticket sales have ended (which is the day before the event), we've had to stop selling tickets in order to ensure we've got the food ordered properly & nametags set!
Can I transfer my ticket? We currently do not accept ticket transfers, so if you know you can't go, please update your ticket information by editing it via the link provided to you in your Eventbrite email.
What do I need to bring to an event? Other than your smiles? You should bring a form of ID. Youwon'tneed to print out the PDF of the ticket, though- we will look you up when you arrive using all the digital things.

Where can I park? All of our events are T-accessible, but we understand that sometimes you have to park. If you do, we recommend you use theBestParkingwebsite.
Do you have food that's gluten free/vegetarian/vegan? We do request that our sponsors include these options, but we are ultimately beholden to what they order. Most of the time these options are provided!
