PLEASE NOTE: Because of Texas Liquor Laws and Homeland Security you may be asked to provide your ID! Please make sure you bring it with you!! No one under 21 will be allowed to enter.
If you are entering with a Director's VIP Pass, you will be admitted at 6:30 p.m., Member VIP Passes enter at 7 p.m. and the doors open to the General Public at 7:30 p.m., even though your invitation says 8-midnight. Please be patient in the line waiting to get in. We are hoping that the new admission charge will not create a backlog of people but this is our first year for this, so we don't know what to anticipate yet. Thanks for your patience!! Remember that seating is limited. If you are new and will be looking for the meetup groups, they generally will be on the right side of the stage towards the front near the stage. I am not attending but my Director's VIP table will still be there for my guests, so look for my name on the centerpiece and you will have found the meetup groups! Have fun and take lots of pictures!! ~~ Liz Dujka
