Event description

Description

After a brief haitus for marriage purposes, IKEA Bus has risen from the grave for an EIGHTH (and possibly final time) and is back to whisk your furniture-related worries away.

Do you need to buy a double sink to preserve peace in your relationship? Is it time to toss out that futon that somehow survived its way into your 30s? Or, maybe you just want to stuff your cheek sacks full of meatballs and watch couples go into core meltdown in the spatula section? Or, maybe... you just like a good ride on a bus. Whatever the case, IKEA BUS CAN HELP YOU!

Just follow this proven 5-step process:

1. Buy a ticket (sorry about the surcharge!) for yourself, your best friend, your mom (moms LOVE IKEA), your tennis partner, or that guy at the bank who looks like he's having a rough day.

2. Show up on Saturday, May 18th at the Marginal Way Park & Ride (located across the street from World Gym) SLIGHTLY BEFORE 8 am. The IKEA Bus will leave promptly at 8, so don't be late! If it helps with your punctuality issues, there will be free donuts and coffee.

3. Ride the bus (in comfort and style, on THIS PLUSH BEAST) all the way down to IKEA in Stoughton, MA. Yes you can BYOB. Yes, there will be PG-13ish in-flight movies. Yes, I will give you drinks and snacks to keep that blood sugar UP becuase you will need your strength.

4. Shop your brains out for 5 hours. It seems like a long time, but in IKEA time, it goes by FAST. We meet back at the bus at 3 to pack up and head home.

5. Head back to Portland. We usually arrive between 5:30-6, depending on traffic. Make sure you have someone waiting with big muscles and a big back seat to help you tote your stuff home if you're not using the Local Muscle delivery service (detailed below).

IMPORTANT NOTES:

- Local Muscle Movers is on board again this year so that you can get whatever you want. Bed, couch, kitchen cabinets. As with prior years, delivery in Portland proper is coverd by the price of your ticket (although, tipping is strongly encouraged). Cost for out of Portland deliveres will be negotiated on a per-case basis and paid directly to Local Muscle. If you're not buying big stuff, there is plenty of overhead and under bus storage.

- This is a very long day, and I do not allow children under 10 years old. There is also no children's ticket price for kids over 10. Every bus rider must pay the full fare.

- I'm sure there will be lots of questions, so please hit me up via email or over on the Facebook.
