Our reunion weekend is almost here!
Here are a couple of things we thought you should know about the Farm Brew Live event:
TICKET SALES ARE CLOSED. NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR - FEEL FREE TO JOIN US AFTER 8:00 FOR CASH BAR AND ENTERTAINMENT!
Location: Farm Brew Live is located at 9901 Discovery Blvd., Manassas, VA 20109. Though visible from the Prince William County Pkwy / RT 28 interchange, access is via University Blvd in Innovation Park. Our event is in the 2 Silos Production Room located in the back of the Pour House. Farm Brew staff will be on hand to direct you, and look for the gold SJHS balloons at the entrance to the room!.
Time: Our reunion event with dinner and open bar is from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Please make sure to maximize your time at our event and get there a little early – we’ll be checking you in at the door with a wristband and nametag to show you are a paid reunion guest and give you access to our private area. Plan to come early and/or stay late! Farm Brew will have live music in the Yard all afternoon and evening, and the re are lots of places to gather and meet up with friends, as well as several bars, restaurants and a food truck. If you have friends or family in the area - have them join us after 8:00 to enjoy the music and purchase food/beverages!
Dress: Several people have asked about attire. There’s no dress code for our event – wear what makes you feel good! Farm Brew is a casual atmosphere (it’s a brewery on a farm after all!) While our event is indoors, there will be lots to do outside before and after, so you may want to wear layers. Please note, a lot of the outdoor area is gravel or grass, so keep that in mind when selecting footwear.< /span>
As many of you know, the venue had a delayed opening - this week marks their Grand Opening, and we have a feeling there will be crowds. Please allow time to park and make your way to the event.
Other reunion events:
- Friday Happy Hour at Bar Louie: Meet up with classmates at Bar Louie Gainesville - we'll have 1/2 price apps and drink specials and a couple of reserved tables from 5-7 pm.
- Friday Night Tailgate and Football: Meet us in front of the football stadium for an informal tailgate starting at 6:00 pm – look for the yellow canopy tent! We’ll have soft drinks and some snacks and some Raiders class of ’87 spirit gear! Watch Raider football under the lights as they take on rival Battlefield High School. Game time is 7:30 pm, and you may purchase tickets at the gate for $6.
- Battlefield Run/Walk: Start your Saturday with a group run/walk at the Manassas Battlefield - including a group photo at the Stonewall Jackson statue. All fitness levels welcome. Meet in the Stone House parking lot at 8:00 am.
We hope you all have a great time reconnecting with old friends. For those coming in from out of town - safe travels, and prepare to be surprised at all of the changes taking place in Prince William County!
