Club amBUSh!!

*** It's a great day for some club hopping! See you there! ***

UPDATE #4: If you were unable to secure a spot for the bus online, you have the option of "flying standby." There are usually 6 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to get on board. Make sure to come early with exact cash.

UPDATE #3: I will be at the downstairs bar to check everyone in and to give you your glow bracelet and itinerary.  Also, it's completely optional, but please consider tipping the bus driver a few bucks.  It'll be a long night, and I'm sure s/he will welcome the show of appreciation.

UPDATE #2: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $30. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #1: There are 8 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $25 to $30 when the early bird spots are gone or before Fri. June 21st (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 Mon. June 17th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot.

Ok, it's time for a bus crawl night-on-the-town!

I've reserved a deluxe charter bus for us, complete with sound system (I'll bring tunes!), dim lighting, and bathroom (yessss!)! We're going to some of the hippest bars / clubs / lounges in DC, so let's pull up in style! No cheesy 4th grade school bus here!

We'll have our very own chauffeur taking us to a few of the hottest spots in DC... and since we've built relationships with many of the bars / clubs for our happy hours... they've agreed to:

  • waive the cover charge (normally $10 - $20)
  • bypass *all* lines (normally a 30 minute - 1 hour wait)
  • provide drink specials

... for our group only!!

So join us for a night of dancing, fun, music, and drinks... while hanging out with others looking to do the same!... all without worrying about transportation, cover charges, waiting in lines, and "regular" drink prices! 21+

Currently, we'll be visiting the following hotspots (see pictures of the venues at the bottom of this posting!):

  • Cafe Asia - Cafe Asia puts a modern spin on everything from presentation to performance.  Well known for it's pan Asian cuisine, it also houses two large full service bars!
  • Current - Current offers a sophisticated retro-chic feel with a sleek lounge atmosphere!
  • Eden - Eden is dressed up with wood walls, waterfalls, and loads of green LEDs.  It looks like something out of Avatar.  In fact, some of the plants were actually sourced from the same folks who sourced plants for the movie.
  • Ultrabar - Ultrabar features a unique blend of classic architecture and modern amenities.

We'll meet up at Cafe Asia to start, for the first hour or so (it's technically our first stop). Detailed itinerary to be provided when we meet up!

We've got an early bird special for this event of $25 (the cost of just the cover at some clubs)! The first 40 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Fri. June 21st (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, it will go up to $30.

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.

Spaces are limited, so secure your spot by rsvping yes *and* making payment! Come join us, and tell your friends!

Metro and Parking

We'll meet up at Cafe Asia to start, for the first ~hour (it's technically our first stop)! Right next to the Farragut West stop (Orange / Blue lines). I suggest Metro / cabbing it. I also recommend using wmata for travel plans. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

Dress Code

Dress code includes no hats, no athletic gear, no baggy clothes, no t-shirts, no flip / flops, no timberland's, no ripped jeans, nice sneakers ok.

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 "rsvp"
  3. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button
  4. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
  5. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Event Check-in

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. =)

  • Donna

    J.T. Do you know how much valet parking is at Cafe Asia?

    June 24, 2013

    • J.T.

      Donna, I don't believe they have valet parking. You'll most likely need to find street parking or a garage. Or do what I do, and take Metro! =)

      June 25, 2013

  • Ginea

    Are there any seats left on the bus?

    June 25, 2013

    • J.T. [20s & 30s Group]

      Right now, all slots are full, I suggest putting yourself on the waitlist, and checking back regularly to see if you've been able to snag a slot or if someone is selling their ticket. If so, then make payment as soon as you can to secure your spot. If you are unable to secure a spot.
