DON'T BE THAT GUY:Please drink responsibly. Management and vendors have the right to refuse anyone who appears to be intoxicated.

COOL KIDS GET HOME SAFELY: Here's a few ideas: Uber, Lyft, a taxi, a selfless friend, your mom. We're more than happy to help you arrange a ride home. If you need assistance, please let us know.



Buffalo RiverWorks has an outdoor parking lot that is free of charge.  In the likely event that the RiverWorks lot fills up, there is over flow parking available in the next lot over managed by All Pro for a $5 fee.  Whiskey Riot strongly advocates using a ride service like Lyft, Uber or a taxi (or a pickup ride from a generous designated driver) for safe transportation from the event.
