601 F Street NW, Washington, DC
Let's get together for a basketball game!
I've made special arrangements with the Washington Wizards and secured a block of seats for us for the game against the Brooklyn Nets! We'll meet up at the bar at The Greene Turtle at 6pm for a drink or two and head into the Verizon Center right next door for an exciting basketball game in our section 400 seats at 6:45pm (see Event Check-in section of the event posting for full details).
Our seats normally cost $49 (fees included) each. We've got an early bird price of $30! The first 35 paid sign-ups, or those who pay by Sun. Dec. 25th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, it will go up to $35. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early AND make payment to secure your spot and get the early bird price! To make payment, please follow the steps in the Payment section of the event posting.
I will give everyone their tickets at the Meetup location on the day of the event at the start time (see Event Check-in section of the event posting for full details). I'll be the one with the red flag (12"x12" in size) with the word "ACK" on it!
Come join us as we spend a fun and relaxing time enjoying a basketball game together before our big New Year's Eve celebration event!
Metro and Parking
The closest Metro is Gallery Place - Chinatown (Red, Yellow, Green lines) or Metro Center (Orange, Blue, Silver, Red lines). I suggest Metro / cabbing / Uber'ing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. I recommend using parkopedia.com for garage parking planning.
PayPal account not required. Please follow the steps below (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Your RSVP is not guaranteed without payment, and your email receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment (please check your spam folder and email settings). You can also log into your PayPal or credit card account online to verify payment. Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Our events do sell out, so I recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price displayed without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.
1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?" (or select "Change" RSVP to add more guests if you've already purchased ticket(s))
2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"
3. Click "Pay Now" (or "Pay Online Now") at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person
4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for. Modify if appropriate, click "Pay Now" or "Check Out" button
5. If you don't have a PayPal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
6. If you have a PayPal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via PayPal
If you are late (arrive after the start time of 6pm), you risk the possibility of not being able to join us for the event. I will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the PayPal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your PayPal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please log into your PayPal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.
Since we pay in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be submitted no later than Wednesday of the following week. For rescheduled events, you must let us know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date... no refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =)
Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send the organizer a "message" through their Meetup profile (do not comment in the comment box of the event posting) letting me know the first AND last name, and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot (please also copy them on the message). I host a lot of events and groups, so please let me know the event name and group name the ticket transfer is for. You must let me know by the RSVP close time of 3pm on the day of the event.
Should inclement weather (e.g. snow storm, hurricane, etc.) affect our event, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. If any one of the following is not available for service due to inclement weather, we'll need to do so: Metrorail is not running to all stops; Uber (X, SUV, etc.) is not running or available at no more than 2x standard rates; venue(s) are not open. I'll post an UPDATE to the top of the event posting by 3:30pm on the day of our event with the details.
If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let us know in advance (a week or more before the event) and we will do our best to accommodate (message me through my Meetup profile). If you let us know the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and we appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
