Event description

Description

Give your brain a break! Enjoy a nice meal and relax with a dram and a fine cigar.

Open to AWS re:Invent* attendees only!

Also, be sure to read the entire event description so that you fully understand the details, especially the terms and conditions.

Let's face it, the torrent of info that will be thrown at us at re:Invent* will be relentless. If you're anything like me then after a few days you'll need a break. While there will be plenty of opportunities for raucous fun, some of us prefer to unwind with the quiet serenity of a fine cigar paired with a well-aged whisky and shared in good company. To that end, I'm organizing this event so that like-minded (and possibly similarly well-aged) individuals can gather for a quiet evening enjoyed in fine style. This will be an opportunity for a few of us to enjoy a nice meal and relax afterward with a good cigar and some high-end whisky, and hopefully to make some friends in the process.

We'll be meeting in The Clubhouse at Montecristo, in Caesar's Palace. The Clubhouse is a smoke-friendly private dining room/lounge with dedicated serving staff, and which serves food from Old Homestead Steakhouse, also at Caesar's Palace. We'll order dinner from the Old Homestead Steakhouse, and afterward we'll explore Montecristo's humidor before returning to the dining room for a smoke and a pour (or two) of sippin' whisky. You can read more about The Clubhouse here. The capacity of the dining room is 10 people, so naturally the event will be limited to 10 attendees, including myself. We need at least 5 attendees to make this worthwhile, so be sure to spread the word among others that you know will be attending re:Invent!

Finally, feel free to connect with me on Facebook if you're attending or interested in attending my event. I'd be happy to hear from you!

I'm not making any money from this event. You'll get the $100 you spent for your ticket back to spend on food, beverages, and cigars, but I chose to sell tickets for a few reasons:

  1. The Clubhouse requires that the party spend at least $500 on food and beverages, and selling tickets ensures that we have enough people in attendance to cover that amount
  2. I've been unable to find a forum, message board, or other means to connect with other re:Invent attendees who would be interested in an event such as this, so listing it here seemed a good way to find like-minded individuals
  3. It ensures that no one gets stuck paying more than their share of the total bill. See below for details on how that will work

Here's how the tickets and the event will work (terms and conditions):

  • $100 will be applied to your tab.
  • The minimum amount you agree to spend on food & beverages, not including cigars or tips, is $500 divided by the number of attendees. So, if there are only 5 of us we each agree to spend at least $100. If there are 8 of us we will each spend at least $62.50, and so on.
  • Every individual attendee must purchase a ticket, and the minimum agreed amount is per person, not per party, so if you and your significant other choose to split an entree you might as well get the lobster. I don't actually know if they serve lobster, but you get my point.
  • If your tab + tip should exceed $100 you agree to pay the difference in cash or via credit card
  • If your tab (not including cigars or tips) has met the minimum amount and is less than $100 I will refund the difference in cash, rounding down to the nearest $5. So, if the minimum per person is $50 and your tab is $57 I'll give you back $55.
  • There will be no refunds issued after Tuesday, November 20th, 2018. So be sure you'll be able to attend before purchasing a ticket.
  • If you purchase a ticket and don't show up, you forfeit the purchase price, and the rest of us will eat, drink, and smoke at your expense.
  • If there are fewer than 5 tickets sold by November 20th, the event will be canceled, and all ticket purchases will be refunded.
  • I reserve the right to amend these rules for clarity or in the interest of fairness and making sure everyone has a good time.

If any of this is unclear, or if you have questions about the event or the rules, feel free to contact me.

* Note that this event is in no way affiliated with, sponsored by, or otherwise sanctioned by Amazon AWS or any other corporate entity. This is a private event organized by an individual who enjoys food, cigars, and whisky.
