Event Details

Ok party people. You know I'm serious here because I'm usuing appropriate capitalization.  Here is how it works:

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, April 23rd, 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 17' box 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. The U-Haul MAY be able to make a few local stops, but definitely don't count on it!


- There will be some snacks and beverages provided for the ride down & the ride back (TBD), 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 are renting a U-Haul to come back with us, you can get whatever the hell you want at IKEA. Bed, mattress, couch... Just make sure you can get it home. There is also tons of under-bus storage for smaller purchases (load that shit up!). 

Unfortunately, because I am personally sponsoring this event, If I don't have the bus at least half filled by the 8th of April, I will have to cancel (that's the last day I can get my deposit back), so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE round up as many Swedish furniture fetishists that you can, and get their asses on the bus!

I'm sure there will be lots of questions, and that's totally cool. You can email me, comment on over at the blog, or even hit up my formspring. 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!
