ATO BIG BIG BIG Anniversary Party at the Koolani Party Room!!!

Aloha & Welcome to the ATO BIG BIG BIG Anniversary Party at the Koolani Party Room!!!  Join us for a fun filled night of eating, drinking, games & PRIZES!!!  This is a BYOB Potluck event so please bring something to share.

*****If you paid ATO Annual Dues in the last year, you DO NOT have to bring anything.  ATO will provide food and drinks as a THANK YOU for being a member and paying your dues.  All others please bring something to share.  Thank you for your kind understanding.*****

There is also a mini-kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, & sink for our use but pretty-please clean up any mess you make.  This event is indoors so there will NOT be a BBQ grill.

Parking is along Queen Street or in the building's guest parking. The guest parking is most easily accessed by driving Makai on Pensacola Street crossing Queen Street and entering the building's parking. Park anywhere on the left side. There are about 30 guest parking spaces for the building. Take the parking elevator from level 1 to the lobby on level 3 and register your car with security.  There is additional street parking and other lots nearby.  Building Security will direct you to the PARTY ROOM.

Sincerest mahalo, john

-----------------------------------------------

If you are not attending, you do not need to RSVP "NO" - it is understood.

The question I am most often asked is, " What should I bring?" My answer is to bring something that you are happy or proud to share. I usually bring a large Papa John's pizza or KFC and a bottle of whiskey or vodka with a mixer like 2 litres of Coke Zero. Some people bring a case of their favorite beer. Some select few actually prepare their own favorite dish. You are not required to spend a lot of money. We just don't want many, many bags of chips so that is why I ask people to please tell us what food and/or drink you will be bringing when you RSVP.

The meaning of BYOB: BYOB is short for Bring Your OWN Beverage / Booze. I am happy to share because I certainly do not come close to finishing my bottle of whiskey but pretty-please do not come without your favorite beverage expecting to drink other people's drinks. If you have a specific need for beer, diet soda, or even bottled water, please bring it. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding on this one.

Please do not call me for directions, address, bus schedule, dress code, etc. Please call the event location or use the internet. As a last resort, you may text me at[masked]-2972. Please understand that event organizers are volunteers. I am not responsible for the weather, any unforseen changes, charges or fees, or if anything happens to you or your property during events. Please do not leave valuables in your car, eat & drink at your own risk, chew your food well before you swallow, watch where you step, hold the handrails, look both ways before you cross the street, etc. Thank you for your understanding.

mahalo & aloha, john f
