    It was a fun event and everyone was very friendly. I definitely enjoyed it--plus, free hotwings? C'mon, it's gotta be great. =)

    Flavia, I think maybe that's why...not sure, and not sure how to change it...but I'm glad you had a great time :) And as soon as I have a link to the photos, I'll post it here :)

    I noticed that my name does not show as having attended the event. Maybe that's why I can't rate it?

    Hi Rita, I never got a chance to introduce my self last night, but I had a great time. I loved the place and the dancing even though I didn't meet too many people. How do we rate the event? And will you post the pictures from the photographer. Thanks! Flavia

    It was okay. But I could have done better. I'm not used to large groups.

    Sorry I didn't stay long. I wasn't feeling good in a claustrophobic way. It's been a while since I have had large group interactions and I'm socially inept.

    Hey guys - don't freak about the weather! Just talked to my friend who is a weather man...it's not sticking, it's not supposed to stick, and they are just squalls pushing through. By the time Stray Cats & Puppy Love happens, it will be just fine! The success of this event depends on you coming out - and we've got tons of prizes!! SO EXCITED!

    February 11, 2012

  • Rita

    I fixed the site! I even extended online sales till 4pm. Thanks! :) The food is free...they are bringing out a variety of food for most of the evening...the drink specials are just their regular bar drink specials...special prices on rail drinks, beer, etc.

    I think you can pay upfront MA. But it'll cost more.

    February 11, 2012

  • Rita

    Hey guys! So, as you know, our goal is $5,000. Right now, we are at a bit over $1,000 but I know that tomorrow we will DEFINITELY meet that $5K goal, right?? I am sooo excited, I'm like a kid at christmas and can't sleep!! See you tomorrow!! Online ticket sales stop at 3pm tomorrow, after that it's cash only at the door! No real difference to you (except $5) but a world easier on me administratively if you buy tickets online. But hey, more money for the cause is FABULOUS!

    Done with paying. See you sat night.

    I'm so glad you are coming Brenda! Absolutely, paying at the door is fine :)

    I'm still going, but it would be more convenient for me to pay at the door.

    February 8, 2012

  • Rita

    There is no problem :) It's $5 more at the door, but of course, that's just $5 more to the charity!

    Honestly, from an administrative point online is best...it helps me see how many I can expect to attend so I can communicate that with the restaurant...and also helps with paperwork and check in at the event itself, but other than that, no advantage or disadvantage in terms of its impact on the attendees :)

  • Harry W.

    Sorry, what exactly is the problem with paying at the door? For those of us who'd rather not pay online?

    I didn't read the description that says to go to their website and pay online. I'll do that soon.

    I just need to remember to do that by tomorrow since expired after 2days from now

  • Rita

    You guys are making me nervous haha! Usually you've all secured your tickets by now! The event is this Saturday and I've lined up raffles including wine/cheese parties, a trip to VEGAS and much much more!! I promised at least 100 people - don't let me down!

    We have a fabulous VACATION PACKAGE that is our grand prize raffle prize - being donated by Iris Lounge! We have about 20 other prizes from local businesses we are raffling. Free Tarot Card readings! Special prizes all night long. Cutest dog and cat competition. DJ/Dancing. Free photos and more! All proceeds benefit The Washington Humane Society! Over 130 of you came to Feed the FISH. I expect a bigger turn out for this event! You do still want me to plan these, right?? haha :)

    I'm assuming it's about adoption. Winning your hearts to adopt strays before they're put down.
