Hello everybody, I am so excited that I was able to book a space at this venue for our next huge event. Blarney Stone was the first bar i ever visited in my youth, and since then it has held a special place in my heart for its awesome live music (in addition to DJ stuff) and delicious food and drinks. And it's located just a few minutes walk away from Waterfront skytrain!
Here is what's going to happen for this event. Since the Blarney Stone is pretty busy on Friday nights, they were not able to make a night long reservation for us unless we wanted to sell tickets for $35 per person. So instead what they are giving us is the entire second floor (which is pretty large with booth's, many tables, a separate bar), exclusively to our group between 6 and 8. After that they'll let anybody come up, but I'm expecting that by 8 we'll have so many people up there already that it won't be too big of a problem.
The cost for this for everybody is $13 (includes taxes and 15% gratuity) a person. And what this $13 ticket includes is the following:
- A free bronze level drink (highballs, beer, wine)
- A selection of appetizers (Chips and Salsa, veggie platters, and flat crust pizza)
- An entire night of making friends, watching Ian fail at dancing, and having the time of your life!
- Exclusive access to the upstairs section between 6 and 8.
The more people who pay online the better, as i would rather spend my time at the event mingling and having fun than collecting money. But if you have to pay when you arrive then the late price will be increased to $15, which will be enough to offset the money I am losing with the paypal fees. Also I don't want to deal with collecting change. You're also welcome to pay me at any prior event you see me at, which for the next couple weeks might just be monday night board games at Toby's.
Full disclosure: The amount I am paying is $12 per person which includes taxes and gratuity, with a minimum I will have to pay of $600 for 50 people.
Update March 27: Blarney has informed me that they made a mistake with their initial invoice forgetting to charge PST. The actual amount that I will be paying will be closer to $12.80 per person. I have changed the price to $13 to reflect this. Anybody who has already paid the $12 price does not need to contribute any more money.
If anybody is showing up after 8:00, you will have to pay $12 for cover to get in which will not include a free drink or appetizers. So I highly suggest trying to get there earlier.
As usual if you're going to be late or can't find the group then send me a text at[masked] 6208. I will also be handing out wristbands to everybody throughout the night to help you identify who is in the group later in the evening when some people have moved to the dance floor. If you have a wrist band already then please remember to bring it.
Thanks guys! It's going to be an awesome night! If you have any questions please leave a comment below. And no you don't need to bring your payment receipt. I will have a list of everyone that paid online and i'll cross your names off as you arrive.
