Some recent questions and concerns:
Will there be vegetarian/vegan options at the dinner? The group I'm coming with is mostly vegetarian or allergic to milk.
Thank you for your question. The House on the Rock is currently still working on the event menu and vegans will definitely be taken into consideration. More information about the menu will be provided as we get closer to the event.
We've also received questions about raffle tickets for the Carousel. One raffle ticket will be included in the package price. Additional tickets will be available for purchase on the night of the party. And don't forget, the winner of the costume contest will also be getting a free ride on the Carousel.
Guidelines for the costume contest have been posted. Please visit the Low Key Gathering Facebook page. A copy of the complete guidelines and other useful information about the party and gathering in general will be sent to ticket holders at a later date.
Thank you for all the band suggestions we've been getting. The House on the Rock is still in the process of deciding, so keep the suggestions coming via our email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Rest assured, we will let you know when the decision has been made.
To everyone who is concerned about the number of tickets left: we'll send out a heads up when the number of tickets available gets down to 100. Keep watching the blog and remember that the best way to ensure you have a place is to buy your ticket today.
