-Frequently Asked Questions-
Q: Can I bring my dog/cat/dragon?
A: As much as we’d like to say yes, our insurance agent said it’s not a good idea. Sorry.

Q: Can I order my bottles ahead of time and have you hold them for me?
A: Sorry, but this becomes a logistical nightmare. So there is no pre-ordering of bottles. It’s first-come, first served. We recommend getting your bottles first, then hang out and enjoy the party.

Q: Where do I park?
A: We’ve made arrangements with our neighbors at ISI (to the North) to use their parking lot. When (and it will) fill up, you can park along the street on Jarvis, or in the surrounding neighborhoods. There is also more parking along the street to the north on Academy.

Q: Can I bring my kids?
A: We have co-founders and employees that bring their kids every year. In fact, co-founder Brad and Kerri’s oldest son was less than a year old when we opened, and they brought him to the event. We certainly welcome you to bring your kids with you. Just remember that it is a alcohol related event, so use your best judgement. We obviously aren’t going to be serving anyone underage. The crowd is pretty low-key and not rowdy.
