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)

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 check?

A: Purse-size bags are OK. No large bags are allowed and there is no bag check available. 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 "designated driver" tickets.

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 (not before).  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!

Q: I'm still stumped...help!?
