WHY IS EXACT LOCATION NOT SHOWN?
- Some unrelated ppl who are not aligned with our brand show up without RSVP. So this is a way for us to maintain event quality.
- We experienced 40% flakes once and waitlist could not move up.
= Now we require guests to type "confirmed to come" on the comment section
EXACT LOCATION will be DM to those who comment "confirmed" in the comments section within 7 days.
There's always access to food & drinks. Either food truck, restaurant, or local vendors.
If we're at a restaurant: 1 Drink or Apps Minimum since the venue is scheduling extra staff to accommodate us.
GUEST WHO RSVP YES BUT DIDN'T CONFIRM?
We guess you're busy and forgot you RSVPed. This happens a lot. We will move you from "going" to "not going". If you remember to come, you can change your RSVP if it's not closed by then.
FLAKES & CANCELLATION POLICY
It's ok if you change status 3 days prior. No penalty. But..
Any guests who cancel or flake within 72 hours will be receive 1 strike regardless of reason and will be banned from RSVPing for 6 months.
2 strikes and guest will be REMOVED from this group and any groups affiliated with us.
We had experienced 30-40% flakes prior, so be patient and come back 7 days within event. Hosts will remove unresponsive guests off the RSVP and Meetup algorithm will waitlist move up.
2-3 days prior for venue coordination. If you miss window, pls try next event.
