FAQs

 

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes, this event is 21+, and attendees will need to present a valid ID to join us. It's the beer!


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Yelp's beautiful office is near the corner of New Montgomery and Mission St, right in the heart of San Francisco. It's easy to get to from BART, many buses, or your ride sharing app of choice. If you need to drive, paid parking is available nearby.


Can I arrive after 8pm?

No!! For building security staffing reasons, we can not let you in after 8pm. We're not joking - if it's 8:00.0001pm, you will be turned away. This really sucks, and we don't want it to happen - please arrive before 8pm.
