FAQs

—-> Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
The event is all ages. Beer, wine, and cocktails will be served by donation, therefore we will be checking IDs at registration.

—->What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Some parking is available in the lot east of the Club, in the street parking spaces around Mirror Lake, or in approved spaces on the west side of the Club near the Bike Co-op. The farthest two aisles west of the club belong to Mirror Lake Condominiums and are marked as such. Do not park in spaces reserved for residents – they actively tow.
