CASH ONLY + FASTBAR
For the most part, bars will be CASH ONLY. Please plan accordingly.
There will be one exception, we’re thrilled to be using a new service for those who want to use credit cards. It’s called FastBar and it’s a high-speed cashless payment system for events. When you arrive at the event you’ll get a special wristband that you link to your credit card. At the bar, you pay by tapping your wristband on a reader. At the end of the night we automatically close you out with your credit card on file – it’s kind of like Uber, but for an event bar.
There are only 300 FastBar passes available for this event, and with over 3000 people attending, they’re going to go quickly. If you want to use the special dedicated FastBar line to get your drinks quicker, not have to deal with cash, and never leave you credit card behind, reserve your spot now! Learn more.

We’ll be displaying social media posts with #AWP2014 using Tagboard‘s technology, so post away!
Because we don’t want any of our guests drinking and driving, we strongly advocate using Uber when leaving the event, unless someone in your group is coming as the designated driver. We’ve worked out a deal with Uber to help take care of that. Enter promo code AWP14 for $20 off your first ride. After all, a party is only great if you arrive home safely from it.
Parking is available via a six-story parking garage directly across the street from Pier 66. Two skybridges access the venue from the parking garage. There should be plenty of space for everyone again this year!
This should be simple: Dress in all white. Not part-white. Not mostly white. All white.
As an example, most ladies will be in all white dresses, most guys in all white pants and all white shirts.
To make sure there are no issues at the door wear all white. This means shorts, shirts, pants, jackets, dresses, suits, skirts, scarves and any other articles of clothing must be ALL white.
The only exception to this rule are your accessories. For example, belts, shoes, handbags, watches, and jewelry are excluded from the all white rule. However, we encourage your accessories to be all white as well.
The dress code will be strictly enforced by our staff at the door. If you turn up wearing any other color than white (this includes but is not limited to khakis, blue jeans, stone wash jeans, black, gray, cream, tan or ANY other color that is not white) you will be denied entry, and there will be no refunds if you break this rule.
It’s really easy. All white means all white. We want everyone to get into the party, so please plan accordingly. Security staff will be checking for dress code at the door, and those not dressed appropriately will be turned away…so play it safe and come in all white.
This year we’re excited to support the Ben Towne Foundation in their mission to accelerate the pace of pediatric cancer research…until a cure is found. 100% of any amount you donate (donation tab is provided on the ticket page) will go directly to childhood cancer research, and one day, finding a cure. Thanks for your generous support!
IMPROVEMENTS FROM LAST YEAR
We’ve made a few changes and improvements from last year:
More than double the check-in stations – processing a line of 3000 people took us longer than expected last year. This year we’ve more than doubled the number of check-in stations and added a bunch of extra security and staff to speed things up this year. There will be a lot of people, so if you arrive at peak time, expect there will be a line to get in. We’ll do everything we can to ensure the wait time is reasonable and the line moves as quickly as possible.
No more red wine – we heard your feedback, and there will be no more red wine at this year’s event.
Additional bathrooms – We’ve more than doubled the number of bathrooms this year.
Additional cash machines – the venue will have additional ATMs to ensure they don’t run dry. However, we recommend that everyone just bring cash with them to the party.
Alcohol options – We’ve added vodka, gin, white rum, and hard cider to this year’s alcohol options.
