Since we have well over 50 people coming to the JLY concerts at the Allen Room, it has been decided that the first reception will take place in the lobby area outside of Entrance Door D to the Allen Room. It is a very large space and won't be nearly as noisy as the Stone Rose Lounge. It will be far better for introductions and cocktail kisses I assure you. There will be a couple of bar carts set up if you would like to order a drink.
Upon arriving at the Time Warner Center, take the elevator up to the fourth floor. You will see the Stone Rose Lounge off to your left, then take the escalator up to the Allen Room. Our group will convene outside of Entrance Door D to the Allen Room. Look for the official Jersey Boys Fan Club poster and a photo of JLY. This meet-and-greet will begin at 9 p.m. Those going to the first show will exit the theater approximately 9:45 and we can chat until the second show ticket holders go in about 10:25 for the show at 10:30. Those wishing to stay can either remain in the lobby area or make their way down to the Stone Rose.
The second cocktail reception begins at 11:45 at the Stone Rose Lounge. Our reserved space is to the far left of the room. You may check in with the hostess under "Jersey Boys Fan Club." Again, look for our poster and JLY pic.
The policy of the Stone Rose for parties over 8 is that all the drinks have to go on one bill in addition to tax and 18% gratuity. Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to put up my credit card to comply with their policy. Since this is an upscale establishment, drinks run in the $15-$20 price range. They have delicious and creative martinis, mojitos, caipirinhas and a full selection of tequilas, scotches, etc. If you would like to order a drink with our designated server, you will need to pay me in cash. Give your name to the server when you order your drink so when I get the bill at the end of the night I will know who ordered what. Pay me in cash when you get your drink. To simplify matters, we will round up the cost to the nearest dollar. For example, a $17 martini with tax and tip is $21.44. Pay me $22 cash.
Here is the table:
$15 cocktail with tax and tip is $18.90 Pay me $19.
$16 is $20.16 Pay me $21
$17 is $21.42 Pay me $22
$18 is $22.68 Pay me $23
$19 is $23.94 Pay me $24
$20 is $25.20 Pay me $26
This is the only way it can work in a place like this on a Saturday night with so many people coming and going. I trust you will understand and cooperate accordingly. You are certainly welcome to make your way to the bar and order yourself, but it might be cumbersome and time consuming. Besides, the Stone Rose wants to keep us contained in one spot. We are welcome to stay until closing at 2 a.m. which, no doubt, we will.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to seeing you all there!
