Drink Responsibly – Go easy on any pre-drinks you may have and your consumption at the event. We want everyone to have a great time but it’s against the law for us to have intoxicated people on site. If you arrive heavily under the influence we won’t be able to grant you entry and those patrons that go over board will be removed from the event. We have a customer care area in place which will cater to guests in these capacities.
