Do I need to buy a ticket in advance to come to the Retro Ski Lodge Block Party?
No! It is not mandatory to purchase a ticket in advance (though it is encouraged). Pre-buying a ticket online does guarantee your entry and donation to the Mercy Home For Boys & Girls. Tickets may be sold at the event based on capacity,  but for an increased price. If you are buying a ticket the day-of, it is best to do so at official check-in (Hopsmith Tavern, 15 W. Division St).


How does this work? Can I just show up at any of the participating bars?

There is a preferred party route for the Bar Crawl. You are welcome to join in at any point but the goal is to make it to the end for closing prizes.
