Yes, all you can drink beer and unlimited rides await you from 6-11 p.m. on August 30 at Lakeside. The chance to buy early bird tickets has passed, but you can still get tickets for $25 online or for $30 at the door. It is, of course, free for Reel Social Club members, which you can join for only $60.
“With an open bar, unlimited rides, and live music, there’s really no better way to celebrate the end of summer than going all out at a classic amusement park,” said Katie Shapiro, one of the founders of the Reel Social Club. “We were the first cultural non-profit to rent out Lakeside (liquor license included!) and hope to build on this fundraiser supporting the Denver Film Society for years to come.”
I went last year and it’s an absolute blast, and I’ll definitely be attending this year. If you decide to go, give us a shout out and we’ll drink and carouse and ride poorly-constructed amusement rides together. Tickets can be purchased here.
