Packing/Shopping List

Prepare Yourself

Here's what you need for Bash

Food

  • Bloody Mary and/or Mimosa Bar– vodka, champagne, spices, and shareable garnishes

  • Margarita Throwdown– your secret recipe for a classic, spin on the classic, or not a margarita at all

  • Lot Crawl– check your section’s assigned theme

    • Party: drinks and/or something in a cup
