    Like a friend who told me "We come to these events and every now and then, you would hear something out of this world, something that makes all our efforts worthwhile." I understand it now. Thank you guys.

    Hmm. I can't seem to find the Order Confirmation email from Eventbrite. I know I paid for this a while back (when it was still $20). On this meetup event, my status is "Paid / Request refund".

    Do I need the ticket at hand to get in? Can someone with the organizers confirm my status?

    Thanks so much.
