4) Do I need to bring cash?

Cash is recommended for tipping bartenders, buying munchies at the food trucks, or purchasing specialty items from the EFDC tent (details to come).

5) What should I wear?

Whatever makes you want to dance! The dance is a semi-formal event with a casual flare (hey, there are food trucks, after all!), so there is always a range in attire. We say hey, seize the opportunity to get gussied up!  

6) Will there be places to sit?

It's a dance, so most people spend the night dancing! There will be some open seating, however, availability it is not guaranteed. You may reserve a place to sit by purchasing a Reserved Table in advance of the event, in addition to your ticket. RESERVED TABLES ARE SOLD OUT.

7) Will there be bathrooms?

RESERVED TABLES ARE SOLD OUT. A Reserved Table does NOT include tickets — you must purchase a ticket to enter the event. You can add on a Reserved Table for $125 (there are a limited number available; you must purchase in advance of the event). Each Reserved Table includes seating for 10, so if you gather a group of 10 people who want to share a table, only one person needs to purchase the table.
