Whalecum back to the 4th Birmingham Red Dress Run hosted by Vulcan H3.
A few housekeeping items...
Rather than having yall text Hieu and blow up his phone for rooms, we will be assigning them out, similar to how New Orleans Red Dress functions. When you rego, there will be a question as to whether or not you need a room and what type you are requesting. (Keep in mind, this is a request, you are not necessarily guaranteed what you request). We will then assign them out first filling the 3rd floor. If the 3rd floor fills, then we will move on to the 4th floor in the same fashion. We will not be putting people on the 4th floor until the 3rd floor is filled. If you no longer need a room, buddy up with someone, transfer your rego, etc, please contact Baskin so we can reallocate that room to someone else.
You will be paying extra for your room directly to the hotel on check in.
We are only accepting paypal for this event. No, we cannot do anything about the fees. No, you cannot pay via cash app, venmo, cash monies, zelle, or sexual favors. Your rego does not count until you are paid.
Cancellations & Transfers
Once you have paid, your rego is nonrefundable. Any rego transfers must be coordinated through Baskin. Any regos transferred after 1.29.23 will not have a personalized toe tag. Gimmies only guaranteed for the first 150.
If you do not want to purchase any, there is an option for 0. If you purchase any, you will get a Google forms link to fill out who they go to, this needs to be done by Christmas. If you do not fill it out, it is a general donation to the Crisis Center. If you need to purchase more than 10 shots, message Baskin
The quest for Red Dress Queen starts from the second you step through the door! Our reigning Queen Goes Down on the Rebound will be watching from the get go to pick her princesses to compete for the coveted title of Red Dress Queen!
Check in and covid procedures (if any) starts Friday at 4. Please be patient with us.
Dinner at 6
After dinner is our dance party. Theme this year is Pretty in Kink. As always, do with that what you will. Break out that bondage gear! Deck yourself out in pink a la Barbie or Elle Woods! Channel your favorite Brat Pack member or 80s attire! Do whatever moves you, but remember nudity is only allowed on the 3rd and 4th floors.
Shooting Star is at 11:30pm. Shot Wrangler TBD but start thinking of something yummy to share
Saturday morning, breakfast is provided by the hotel until 9am. Be nice to them, they put up with a lot from us and we tend to all crawl down at once. As always, we will have the bloody mary and mimosa bar until supplies are gone. Java H3 will also be brewing. Bring your french presses and beans to share! This is a draft punk style coffee brewing born out of too much shitty coffee (or worse, no coffee at all) at events so bring your best! If you don't bring to share then resign yourself to what you can get from the hotel.
Whether you're sipping on the hair of the dog or the nectar of the gods, the hab fair will be happening Saturday morning before lunch and trail. Let us spend money for your kennel and wear your swag!
Saturday after lunch, we board a bus into Birmingham where opening circle will be RA’ed by our own lovely PBR. LET THE TRAIL BEGIN!! AFLAC and Catcher in the Eye are our hares again this year and we know that they will give us a good one.
Do whatever you need to do to get ready for dinner at 6, followed by the raffle to raise money for the Birmingham Crisis Center, and the crowning of your 2023 Red Dress Queen!
Sunday is help us clean up and GTFO! There is no 'official' brunch, but we will be heading back to Marty's GM in Irondale.
