All items together valued at over $300 with the exception of the Mustard Song guest spot, which we value as infinite and neverending. 


Your Buffyfest VIP experience starts with lunch with actor Nicholas Brendon on Saturday Sept 29 at 12:30pm and ends with a front row seat to The Florida Bjorkestra's Buffyfest 2018 later that evening. 

For lunch you'll join Nicky at 400 Beach Seafood and Taphouse. Once there, he'll regale you with tales of daring deeds and heroic acts while you dine on some of St. Petersburg's finest fare. 

After lunch you'll have a brief couple of hours to recover from all the awesomeness (seriously we're jealous; we want to go to lunch with Nicky!) and prepare for the events of Buffyfest 2018 taking place at The Palladium just down the street from the restaurant. Doors to our Magic Box of vendors, artists and Nicky's table open at 5pm. The concert starts at 8pm in the same building. 

When you arrive at The Palladium, head over to our merch table in the Magic Box to pick up your VIP Bag o' Goodies, including a tshirt in your size, a full sized souvenir poster signed by Nicky and various Buffy themed goodies and treats. 

But wait, we're not done yet

One of you potential slayers will be chosen by random drawing broadcast on Facebook Live (date and time of drawing TBA, watch our website and Facebook page for updates) to be the fabled and much beloved MUSTARD PERSON. What does this mean? It means that when The Florida Björkestra gets to the part of the show where they "get the mustard out", you'll be pulled up on stage from your safe and comfortable front row seat, handed a shirt in a dry cleaning bag and a microphone and you'll lead us all in the classic but (thankfully) brief song, "The Mustard."




Who made all this awesome stuff possible?

Our amazing friends at Et Cultura and Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, that's who!


How do I sing the Mustard Song if I end up chosen by the random drawing?

Let us paint the picture for you. 

The show is chugging along nicely. Right after "I've Got A Feeling/Bunnies/If We're Together" one of us will make a brief announcement about our special plan for The Mustard Song. We'll call you up from the front row and you'll be given a microphone. Say your line "They got... the mustard... out" and we'll do the rest. Fun will be had by all, cue the cheering and applause, then head back to your seat for the rest of the show. It's easy!


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. The show is all ages and the lunch with Nicky is, well... it's lunch. Everyone eats lunch. Even babies


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking at Palladium can get tight. Palladium has two parking lots, one next to the theater on the same side of the street, and one across 5th Avenue N from the theater. Your best bet is to get there early to get in one of those parking lots. Later arrivals will be looking for street parking. Or just Uber it so you can get good and sauced with no worries. 

For parking at 400 Beach Seafood and Taphouse, street parking is the only available option.


What can I bring into the event?

We encourage you to video the show and share it. Please no flash cameras, though. It scares the musicians.

Come dressed up as your favorite character and register for our Costume Contest Afterparty (details and locations TBA soon). 

No weapons please. So if you come dressed as Riley, leave the firearms at home. 

Vampire stakes are fine as long as you promise not to put them in anyone's chest. 

Last year someone came dressed as Drusilla and walked around in character all night carrying a baby doll. So yeah, we're all about bringing stuff. 


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

For will call questions or anything pertaining to the theater, contact the Palladium box office HERE.

For any other questions, email us at


What's the refund policy?

No refunds.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?


For lunch, your name will be held at the restaurant. Just mosey on up to the hostess station, give your name and tell them you're there for the Buffyfest VIP Lunch.

For the concert, your name will be held at our merch table. Just waltz right in to the Magic Box to our table, tell us who you are and your VIP badge and front row seat to the show will be waiting for you. (Moseying and waltzing not required)


Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yep! To transfer the VIP lunch ticket and your concert seat, contact us at to update us on the name of the person who will be attending the lunch and the concert. 

I want to buy more than one ticket. How can I make sure all the VIPs in our party are sitting together?

Send us an email and let us know the names of VIPs in your party and we'll do the rest.
