Event Details

It's that special time of year! The crocuses are popping through the soil and local pedestrians are downshifting into shorts and flip flops on the first unseasonably warm day and not changing back again when it gets cold. SPRING HAS SPRUNG. And with it, comes the arrival of tax returns, and the insatiable lust for new stuff that comes with them. IKEA Bus is back to help you deal with that urge.

Whether you need a few things to aid in your spring cleaning, decided that you hate all your stuff, or just want to go on a fabulous bus adventure, THIS IS THE PLACE! This is how we do it:

1. Buy a ticket (I'm sorry about the surcharge!) for yourself, your mom, your girlfriend, that hot guy who stood behind you in line at the post office... and then go home to make a shopping list while you wait.

2. On Saturday, May 18th, meet at the Marginal Way Park & Ride lot (located across the street from the World Gym) SLIGHTLY BEFORE 8 AM. The Ikea Bus will leave the lot promptly at 8, so don't be late!

3. We will then take a relaxing and enjoyable (seriously, check out this sweet ride) 2ish hour ride down to the IKEA in Stoughton, MA

4. We will have roughly 5 hours (seems like a lot, but in IKEA time, it's like 15 mintues) to romp, browse, snack, shop, etc. We will meet back at the bus at bus at 3 pm (2:30 if you have purchased anything big that needs to get loaded into the truck that will be joining us) to head back to Portland. Barring major disaster, expect to be home between 5:30 & 6. Make sure that there's someone with a vehicle to pick you and your enormously heavy particle board furniture up. The truck will be available to make deliveries in Portland only. 

SOME THINGS TO KNOW:

- There will be some snacks and beverages provided for the ride down & the ride back (TBD- suggestions welcome!), but feel free to bring your own as well. As long as you are of age, you can also totally BYOB.

- There will be in-flight movies (also TBD). That said, the sound will play over the bus sound system (no headphones), so it will likely be more background noise than anything. Let me know if you have any suggestions or requests. 

- There is a bathroom. A bus bathroom, but still good.

- Because we will have the magical Local Muscle Movers on board again this year, you can get whatever the hell you want at IKEA. Bed, mattress, couch... Just make sure you can get it home. We will only be able to deliver items in the Portland area. There is also tons of under-bus storage for smaller purchases (load that shit up!). 

I'm sure there will be lots of questions, and that's totally cool. You can email me or comment on over at the blog or Facebook. Once you are registered, I will also send you my phone number, and probably lots of emails. I will be asking questions about snacks, movies, if you're planning on buying anything truck-worthy... so keep your eyes out!
