Q:

I was waiting to get an answer if you could accommodate people with food allergies. I got the answer and went to buy groupon and its now sold out. can you still honor the $69 deal. If so? how do I do it? thanks,

A:

Sorry but the contract with the venue limited us on the bottles of wine to 500, which is why the total was capped. We will definitely contact you if any slots become available. We will be running a groupon in LA in a few weeks. They can accommodate food allergies as well. Please keep an eye out for it.

Q:

The first available date is march 2. Since the date you reserve is set in stone, I'm hesitant to book that far out in the future. What are my chances of getting in at the last minute somewhere down the road?

chris  asked on  Jan 22, 2013

A:

we are sold out and a lot of people are going to be booking out the shows. you can always take your chances, but since the seating is limited, it is hard to say. If you become a fan on our FB page, we will be posting notices if a show is sold out and Groupon seats become available.

Q:

Thanks for your promptness to answering my last question... I purchased the deal for March date. Is there a way i can get notification on an earlier date if someone cancels theirs? thanks

markeisha s.  asked on  Jan 22, 2013

A:

Since the Groupons are non transferable and non refundable once they are used, we wouldn't be able to open any more Groupon seats. That being said, if the venue wants to open the room up even more, we will definitely post it on our Facebook page.

Q:

Hi I visited the website and im a little confused on the seating, could you please explain to me. i read a part saying because it was a groupon i may not be guarenteed a seat... Thx

markeisha s.  asked on  Jan 21, 2013

A:

Sorry for the confusion. Seating is limited and therefore the number of Groupons per show is limited. Once you are confirmed and have a confirmation page, you are GUARANTEED a seat. Hope that helps.
