Q: When is this event taking place?
A: Sunday, April 8th, from 8:00-11:00+.
Q: Where is this event taking place?
A: Jillian's Boston 145 Ipswich Street Boston, MA 02215. Google Maps here
. Parking and directions here
Q: How long will this event last?
A: Officially, the party lasts three hours. During that time we have the most of the 3rd floor (VIP and Polo rooms) to ourselves, plus 11 dedicated pool tables, foosball, and ping pong. During this time food and drinks are served for party guests and we can also hook video games up to the various TVs in the venue. 4 private lanes of bowling will be reserved for our group during this time with shoe rental included. (I may ask for more depending on how many tickets are sold)
After the three hour mark, we lose that stuff. We might have to leave the room. But they aren't going to kick us out, and at previous PPP the party has gone on until the venue closes, which is far into the wee hours of the morning.
Q: Is this event 21+?
A: Nope. 18+, but if you're under 21 please don't drink or try to drink. Jillian's said they are normally 21+ but we got special permission for 18+.
Q: How much will this event cost?
A: I'm very pleased to announce that the ticket price is only $40
Q: Do I need to buy a ticket, or can I just show up?
A: You do need to buy a ticket in advance, and space is limited. The Eventbrite Tickets registration page is located here
. Ticket sales close on Thursday 4/5 to confirm number of people to Jillian's.
Q: What kind of food is served?
A: Appetizer-type stuff. Mac and Cheese Bites, Coconut Shrimp, Chips & Salsa, Veggie Egg Rolls, Buffalo Chicken Bites, all included in the ticket price, and the food is fully stocked for 2 hours and will be left for the duration of the party.
Q: Is alcohol served?
A: Yup. Jillian's has a private cash bar in our reserved rooms.
Q: Is alcohol included in the ticket price?
A: No, I was told that the State cannot provide alcohol this way.
Q: I heard you have video games. What kind?
A: As of now we have confirmed two video game stations- one wii and one xbox (not sure if its 360). We can hook whatever gaming systems we want to these. There are other TVs in the room on the walls but I need to confirm if we can hook systems up to those. It would be great to have rock band going but will need to ask volunteers to provide the systems and gear. I fully plan on hooking up as many consoles as I can get my hands on to provide you guys with a wide variety of games to play and short lines to wait in. If you're willing to offer up a console and some games for the evening, please get in touch with me via PM.
Q: What's with this raffle thing?
A: All attendees are encouraged to throw down some money for our raffle. Each ticket also comes with one raffle ticket, which will be thrown into a hat along with everyone else's. Before the party I will collect all the raffle donations and go on a crazy spending spree for FABULOUS PRIZES, which will be raffled off at some point during the party. Previous PPP's prizes included a StarCraft 2 Collector's Edition, a light-up BioShock EVE hypo, Bacon Soap, and lots of other cool stuff. I try not to disappoint. It will all depend on donations.
Q: So there's Bowling?
A: YES! Right now we have 4 private lanes for our party. Shoe rental is include aka FREE. Max 10 people per lane. I plan on implementing a signup sheet for bowlers and limit bowling time IF there is a waitlist. Depending on how many tickets are sold, I may ask for MORE free lanes.
