*** GREAT NIGHT TO RING IN THE YEAR OF THE HORSE, SEE YOU TONIGHT!! EVENT HAS SOLD OUT, NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR! ***
*** Sign up list closes 5pm Fri. Jan. 31st... make sure to RSVP before then! ***
UPDATE #8: Please note your name on the list will be under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. If you have an "American" name and an "Asian" name, more times than not, it will be your "Asian" name... so please use that name when checking in. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you don't know it, or you give the wrong name, you will not be able to get in! If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in. Please see the "Event Check-in" section of the event posting for full details. See you there!
UPDATE #7: A couple of notes about Eden... this place has a serious sound system. That means it WILL be loud. The best time to talk and meet people will be between 9 - 11pm when we have the place mostly to ourselves. After that, it's pretty much time to, yes, party! Also, keep in mind it is a club, so it WILL be crowded. And while we have our own line, with the large number of people coming out, logistically it may take 10 - 15 minutes for them to get us all in. So please have your ID out and ready. Come on out, and let's let loose with a night of dancing, music, drinks, and fun!
UPDATE #6: Drink specials for our group after open bar include $4 Bud Lights, $6 "20s & 30s Superstar" drinks, and $6 "Green Dragon" shooters until 11pm. Dress code is in full effect! Suggested attire for men: button up collar shirt with slacks, hard-soled dress shoes. Suggested attire for women: classy and sexy.
UPDATE #5: Because we're bringing out so many people, they've given up the 3rd floor (one beneath the rooftop) too!
UPDATE #4: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $10. Looking forward to seeing you there!
UPDATE #3: I need 5 people to help decorate the venue at 7pm. Send me an email through my Meetup profile if you can help. First drink is on me after open bar!
UPDATE #2: We've been able to extend the $5 early bird price! The first 250 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Thurs. Jan. 30th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $10. See you there!
UPDATE #1: There are 9 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $5 to $10 when the early bird spots are gone or before Fri. Jan 24th (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Jan. 19th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot. I hope to see you there!
Ok, it's time to celebrate the year of the horse!
I've rented out the entire VIP rooftop ALL NIGHT at Eden for our group only! Cover is normally $20, but that is INCLUDED in our ticket price (until 11:30pm)! Not only that:
• We get OPEN BAR from 9 - 10pm
• We also get our own drink specials after open bar on our own floor until 11pm (VIP rooftop)
• We get our OWN line (ask for the 20s & 30s Asian Going Out Group Meetup line)
• We get our own Meetup wristbands and glow bracelets, so we can easily identify each other!! =)
From 9 - 11pm, we'll mix and mingle together on the VIP rooftop. After 11pm, we'll keep it going all night with our own drinks specials (on the rooftop only)! Our party will be on the rooftop, but we are also free to roam the *entire* club (4 levels, each with it's own DJ)!
We'll have our own DJ spinning lively beats to get us dancing! Not to mention, I've also secured lion dancers for us, because it's not a Lunar New Year party without lion dancers! Our past Lunar New Year's events have always brought out 200 - 300 people, so I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around too!
Space is limited, so sign-up early! Last year, we sold out quick! We've got an early bird special for this event of $5, yup $5! The first 150 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Fri. Jan. 24th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, it will go up to $10. Secure your slot by rsvp'ing yes *and* making payment!
Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.
So tell a friend, come on out, and let's let loose with a night of dancing, music, drinks, and fun while celebrating the year of the horse! Also, 20s & 30s Asian Rockstars, please help make the newbies feel welcome! =)
Metro and Parking
Farragut West (Orange / Blue line) station is the closest Metro. I suggest Metro / cabbing it. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.
Dress code includes includes no hats, no athletic gear, no baggy clothes, no t-shirts, no flip / flops, no timberlands, no ripped jeans, nice sneakers ok. Suggested attire for men: button up collar shirt with slacks, hard-soled dress shoes. Suggested attire for women: classy and sexy.
Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):
Please follow the instructions below for making payment (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.
1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"
2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"
3. Click "Pay Now" at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person
4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button
5. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
6. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal
We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.
Refund Policy & Ticket Resell
Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)
