COVID-19 Safety
All attendees will be required to show proof of full vaccination (such as card or photocopy) along with photo ID. Masks are required while not eating/drinking. We’ll have plenty of 3-ply masks on hand in case anyone needs an extra mask.
Please know that you’ll need to pass through the downstairs café area to reach this event, and we don’t know how crowded it will be downstairs.
We ask that you do not attend if you are feeling any COVID-19 symptoms on the day of the event or have tested positive within the previous 10 days. Please get tested ahead of the event if you have been in any high-risk social settings in the 7 days before the event.
Please let us know if you will need ASL-interpreting services! 48-hour advance notice needed. ❤
This event is on the second floor and requires entering via flight of stairs; the downstairs café is wheelchair accessible which allows for socializing at the same venue, but not at the event itself.
