Frequently Asked Questions


What should I wear?

As with all Bonza Bashes, dress to impress. While this is a “black tie” event, some guests may prefer to wear semi-formal cocktail attire. Please be aware that most people will be in tuxedos, suits, gowns and cocktail dresses. We wish to remind guests that jeans, shirts without a collar and/or sneakers are inappropriate for an event of this nature, and are expressly forbidden. Regrettably we must decline entry to a very small number of guests for this reason each year, so please ensure you don’t become a statistic!

We get so few opportunities to dress to the nines in Seattle, so take advantage and dazzle the night away in your finest!

But it’s last minute and I still don’t have a tux! Can’t I just wear jeans?

No. Pull out those slacks or take a look at our Deals page for discounted tux rentals. Dress code will be enforced!

Food and Beverage

Will you be serving alcohol at the event? How many bars will there be?

Yes, we will have plenty of full bars at the event to ensure people can get drinks in a timely manner. Making sure the bars run smoothly is always a high-priority.

Will bars take cash only, or credit cards as well?

Bars will be cash only. Please remember to bring adequate cash with you. For back up purposes, there is a Bank of America ATM located on the 40th floor of the Columbia Tower (Sky Level).

Will food be available at the event?

Yes, there will be a selection of light hors d’oeuvres and desserts available. This is all included in your ticket price. Please note, this is not designed to replace a meal, and we recommend eating before the event.

For our VIP ticket holders, the VIP lounge will contain all of the food available to general admission guests plus additional, exclusive options you’ll only find in the VIP area, and a greater quantity of food. Think of this more like “heavy hors d’oeuvres”. Read more details here.
