I'm hosting this months game party on the 3rd because my mom and sister will be visiting from Texas. They love board games as much as I do. We will be playing in the game and billiards room. The setup will be the same as usual. You will bring a food or drink to share with the group. You may also bring any games you would like to play. There is plenty of room for many different games to be played at the same time. I am limiting this to 30 people per time slot (11am and 1pm). There is no time limit as far as how long you can stay. Whether you arrive at 11am or 1pm, you're welcome to stay as long as you'd like. Separating the arrival times will allow you to valet park, at the Ritz Carlton, free of charge.
The Ritz is on Key Highway across the street from the Visionary Arts Museum. If you are valeting, pull around and they will give you a colored valet ticket and park your car in a secure underground garage with no time limit.
Enter the building through the main entrance and TURN LEFT at the corridor as you exit the lobby. Follow the long hallway all the way down. Follow the signs towards building 4. You will see the numbers on the doors going down. You will pass the pool, restrooms, resident lounge, and theater in that order. When you reach what looks like the end of the hallway, a blue wall with a picture of men on horses, turn left. It will be the second door on your right, labeled GAME AND BILLIARDS. Call me if you get lost or have any additional questions. [masked] Nichole
Most of you know how valet works, but I'll explain for those of you who are unsure. When you arrive, a valet attendant wearing black will greet you and give you a colored paper ticket. You will need this ticket to retrieve your car later. Leave your car running! As soon as you receive the ticket, you should head to the gameroom. Your car will be parked in a safe underground garage beneath the building and they will keep your keys. There is no time limit. When you are ready to leave, present the valet attendant with your colored ticket. They will get your car and help you get in. At this time, you may give an optional tip. Tips are not expected, but appreciated. If you choose to give one, $2-5 is standard.
