If you have not been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 we ask that you wear a mask or refrain from attending in accordance with CDC guidelines for large group gatherings. If you are fully vaccinated and feel more comfortable continuing to wear a mask you are more than welcome to do so.
Paikka has generously gifted us their space until 9:00 pm so we will need time to pack up our things and clean up after ourselves. If you would like to continue mingling you're welcome to head over to Lake Monster Brewing Company, which is housed in the same building.
