WHAT’S INCLUDED IN TICKET COST?
This event is truly a “pay-one-price” event - which means EVERYTHING is included: Attendees ride the trolley and hop to all the different stops for samplings of delicious food, drinks and cocktails. Also included is the event transportation, cool giveaways, door prize drawings, and a lanyard to wear around your neck that clips onto your ticket so you don’t lose it. The ticket cost also includes free entry to the prize drawing.
Each stop on the map is unique and will offer something different. It is at the discretion of each establishment as to what they will provide attendees. The food served by the participating restaurants is limited to a “sampling”. Any restaurant offering an alcoholic beverage has a limit of one complimentary serving per person, and you must be 21 years of age. You may be asked for identification to prove you are of legal drinking age at each stop, so don’t forget to bring your I.D. Adults are able to purchase more alcoholic beverages from an establishment.
Tipping the bartenders, servers, and trolley/bus drivers, is of course, optional, but recommended.
