Admission Fees & Door Policy:
Admission fees help cover event logistics, food, drinks, video recording, and more. It's unlikely, but if you'd like to try and see if there's room last minute at the door without an RSVP (no guarantees), there will be an extra $20 added processing/hassle fee at the door. We've had some unfortunate experiences with this in the past, so thanks in advance for your understanding!
