PS. Be advised, this is a 21+ only event. We've been getting quite a few inquiries about people bringing their kiddos to this event. We LOOOOVE kids, but unfortunately our venue and our ABC permit does not allow ANYONE under the age of 21 to attend ( including babes in arms). So, please do find a sitter or bribe the grandparents, we would hate to turn you away the day of!
P.S.S. No dogs, no pets and absolutely no Pink Elephants!
