Are kids allowed?
For this event, we are keeping it 21 and over. This includes infants. Grab a babysitter and enjoy the time off!

What about Fido?
If this party is anything like our last few, it would be best to leave your furry friend at home. We all love our animals, but we expect to reach full capacity, and even the the most well-mannered dogs can get a bit stressed.

Where else can I buy tickets?
Reminder, you don't need a ticket this year. Come one, come all!

I’m a Society Member, how do I get my ticket*?
As a Society Member, your name is already on the list. Just show up at the door (we encourage cutting to the front of the line) with you ID, and you’re in! But remember, front of the line admittance is just for you and one (1) wife/boyfriend/BFF/etc.

*You are welcome to join us at both luaus, but your additional benefits (listed above) are only valid at one party.

Are you open before and after the event?
In Paso Robles, the taproom will be open starting at 11am. We'll open the backyard for the party at 2pm. In Visalia, the party starts when we open at 11am.

Are there any benefits for designated drivers?
No, and here’s why: even if you aren’t drinking you’ll still get to enjoy the fun atmosphere, delicious food, awesome games, and amazing music. We do have non-alcoholic drinks available for purchase. Please Drink Responsibly.

Are there any food options available for people with food allergies?
Unfortunately, we can not guarantee foods served at the event are free of gluten, nuts, lactose, etc..

Can I bring my chair?
Yes! We do have seating available but feel free to bring your fold up chairs for use in the garden area.

What about rain?
Fingers crossed we don't get rain in May, but nothing can stop this event. The party goes on rain or shine!
