A quick and important update regarding Wet Hot American Fourth!! We had to do a last-minute change of location due to a change in capacity, and so the party will now be held at Chef Matt Shepherd’s lovely home in the sunset at 1843 10th Ave. He has so kindly offered his back yard for some beats and BBQ. We will have all the beer, liquor, food, and activities as promised before. To all the current ticketholders and volunteers, you are already good to go. For those who haven't gotten tickets yet, you’ll be able to buy them at the door for $30 – once again, ALL proceeds go to Mama Hope and the Kisumu Children’s Rescue Center in Kenya, and every bit of food, drink and merriment is included in the price!! The party will be held from 12-6 so that we can be respectful to the neighbors and roommates. There is plenty of street parking for those who plan to drive. And, after it’s over, we can go down the street to the bars, and then up to Turtle Hill to watch the fireworks!
