Party Price List from June 2011
New price list called Carnival Entertains from November 2013
If you select the cheapest option called "Good Morning", you get Mimosas, Bloody Marys and an assortment of house wines for $14.00 per person for 1 hour. When you add in 15% gratuity and PayPal fees, you are paying $16.89 per person, or about $34 for a couple.
Under the old pricing structure you could have a one hour "Open Bar with Dry Snacks" for $9.95 per person. After adding in gratuities and a PayPal fee, it would cost you $12.09 per person, or $23.87 for a couple. The prices were generally rounded to $12.00 and $24.00 since the organizer made a few cents from each couple that paid due to one component of PayPal's fee being fixed at 30 cents per transaction.
Wonder how this is going to affect future Meet & Greet gatherings. Personally I have found that pre-paid events tend to be more fun, but they exclude those who don't drink. I also find myself drinking too much as I am trying to get my money's worth.
