Our friends at Maker's Mark are teaming up with us to make sure that this is gonna be the #bestpromever and it's our last chance to hang before we all graduate to bartender college.It's in this giant ballroom at Buckeye Bourbon House, and the ceilings are like so high, you won't even believe it. Christy said that there's even a secret room where the chaperones hide the best booze. You know it's gonna be mega lit because we've got all the best #promjams, and killer punch (Caleb said he was def gonna spike it!), and dinner from I Love Garden (breadsticks for days!)It's on Sunday May 21st from 8pm - Midnight, and we don't even have school the next day, so I think Matt or Dirk are gonna like have people over after.OH YEAH! WE ALMOST FORGOT!IF YOU'RE CROWNED PROM KING/QUEEN YOU GET TO GO TO MAKER'S MARK WITH US!It's super easy to get nominated, all you have to do is create a special cocktail at your bar or restaurant inspired by your prom date using Maker's Mark, Maker's 46, or Maker's Cask Strength, and then post a video of you making your cocktail on Facebook or Instagram. Tag us @thehrdepartment on Instagram or facebook.com/columbushrdepartment on Facebook.Once we get to prom we'll have a Miss/Mr. Universe style competition to see who really deserves to be crowned King/Queen (I heard Vanessa wants to win so bad this year that she already picked out her dress!)This is our year, and we can't wait to see you all out there on the dance floor!Let's paint to town red!!!
How can there be frequently asked questions for an eventthat was just announced?Valid point, there can't be. We are lying to you about that part,but this info might be helpful.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Yes, you must be 21+ to attend and you must bring a valid ID.
Do I need to wear a prom dress or a tux/suit?
No, but you probably want to. Extra points if it's from the 90s and you find it at a thrift store.
What should I expect?
Just the best prom ever.
Do I need to RSVP?
For sure for sure. This prom is gonna be hella tight and all the coolest people are going to be there, so you need to make sure you're on the list.
Should I spike the punch?
We've got that covered, so leave that to us, unless one of the chaperones tells you otherwise.What if I'm not pretty enough to be Prom King/Queen?First of all we think you're like...the prettiest person we've ever seen. But it isn't about looks anyway, it's about who best represents the spirit of TW Samuels Academy for Gifted Bartenders. Get out there and make a cocktail video and ask your date! YOLO!!!Do I have to post a cocktail video and nominate myself for King/Queen to attend prom?Nope! All you have to do is RSVP. But if you want a chance to check out Maker's Mark Distillery with us then get to work on that cocktail now.
