“…each year's Dirty Ball delivers on its promise to offer ‘a high-end, low-brow offering of aesthetic delicacies’…” - Pittsburgh City Paper, 2012

    Hope everyone is looking forward to tomorrow night's Dirty Ball ... this is an event like no other! If you're buying (or already purchased in advance) the General Admission ticket, it is recommended that you arrive a few minutes before 8 PM to avoid longer lines, check in, etc.

    Once you're inside the building, the Meetups should promptly gather at the entrance to the Velvet Lounge between 8-8:30 PM. I'll mention to a few people at the entrance about the Meetup group.

    Is there a particular dress code for this event or is it basically "anything goes"? Just wondering if we need to dress up as super heroes or something... ;)

      As mentioned in the description, this event features 'anything goes attire' along with photos/video of previous Dirty Ball so people can get an idea about the event. Since people are paying between $50-$250 ticket, most people like to get really dressed up or opt to wear something a little more edgy/funky. But there is no dress code, and some people show up with more conventional business casual attire.

    Just a little reminder that you can save a little on the Dirty Ball tickets if you purchase before April 15.
