Q: How do I transfer my registration to someone else or to a different session?
A: Use these instructions from Eventbrite to easily transfer your ticket to a new name. You can also transfer sessions using their system (change in price may be applicable). Also -- you can just send someone your ticket directly via email if you can no longer go -- all they need is the barcode!
Q: Is the event rain or shine?
A: YES -- our Dock 5 at Union Market venue has a large indoor area, so no worries about the weather!
Q: Can I bring in food? Water?
A: Outside food is OK. Water, in unopened bottles only, are OK--no other outside beverages are allowed.
Q: Can I bring a bag? Is there a bag/coat check?
A: There is no bag or coat check available on site. Small (think like a normal purse) bags or smaller are OK. No large bags like backpacks/luggage/duffel bags are allowed. Purses will be inspected on entry by security staff, so please have them out and open.
Q: Do you have to be 21?
A: Yes, all attendees must be 21 years or older--absolutely no exceptions (even babies, sorry!). Please bring your ID to be checked at the entrance.
Q: What if I don't drink?
A: There will be plenty of water and soft drinks available for purchase, but there are no separate tickets available for non drinkers -- all entry tickets are the same.
Q: What's the best way to get to the event?
A: Short answer: take Metro or rideshare! Dock 5 at Union Market is a couple blocks away from the NoMA Red Line stop. There is lots of parking in the area for free, but driving is dumb if you're having lots of beer--please don't drink and drive.
Q: Can I get a refund?
A: Refunds are available until March 24th, but then after that, all sales are final! Request a refund using Eventbrite and we'll process ALL of the refunds on March 24th. You can transfer your registration to someone else easily using our Eventbrite online ticketing system.
Q: Can I bring a dog? Cat? Lemming? Mongoose?
A: No, sorry, no furry friends of any sort allowed, except for certified (and marked) service animals.
