    Hi Venz, the charity event itself ends at 8pm. There's no strict end time for this meetup. People can come and go as they please. I'll probably stay until 6:30pm, but everyone is welcome to stay longer. There will be music, food, and other patrons so it should be a good time whether or not you stay with the group. Hope to see you!

    Hi Romeo, I just changed the start time for our meetup to 5pm. This event is expected to draw a full-house, so I'm told all guests need to pay at the door before being seated. I'll be outside near the back entrance at 5pm.
