What if I really like one dish, can I eat more of it?
Sure! If you have a favorite you are welcome to go back for another taste, but remember – you are on a mission.

Can I bring my kids?
Anyone 10 years or older may attend the event and must have a valid ticket in hand. You must be 21+ to consume alcohol. All tickets are same price per person regardless of age. For the reason to provide everyone with enough space to enjoy, we cannot accommodate infants and strollers.
Do you give refunds if for some unthinkable reason I can’t make it?
Unfortunately we do not offer refunds. If you have an emergency, please email us regarding transferring a ticket and we will do our best to accommodate you.
