Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! Still got all your fingers? If not, try and sell one at Grossfest!
Well…. we had our last meeting with the George Washington hotel staff and…….This year is going to be one for the record books!
The staff have been super great to us and very accommodating! Big shout out to Lia Capito and her crew for really helping make this event come to life! Thanks to them, this year, to help with social distancing, Grossfest will be taking over the entire hotel! Guests and vendors will be spread out throughout different ballrooms to help with social distancing! Each table will be spread 6ft apart as well as we will monitor how many people will be going in to each room to respect people’s social distance.
Award winning head chef of the George Washington hotel James a. Warcholak, will be on hand cooking up some tasty brain tacos for all of us! (I’m being serious, you read that right!) if that is not your thing, there will be other things as well! Menu will be posted soon!
There will be a bar on each level of the hotel for everyone to enjoy!
Second, the movie room will be going both days! We have a lot of cool movies playing this year. Again, to help with social distancing, only a certain amount of people will be allowed in the movie room at one time. To help with that, we will play a couple of movies on Sunday for those who may not be able to get in on z
The hotel and our main goal is to keep everyone safe while we try to show you a good time. If you are sick, please stay home. There will be temperature checks at the door before you enter the show. Also as per the hotel, masks are mandatory! They must be worn all day. The only exception is when eating and taking pics. If you are caught without a mask and refuse to comply, you will be asked to leave with no refund. We know this is a touchy subject for some but we must do what is best for everyone and also what the hotel and state are requiring . We are in this together and we want everyone safe!
There will be hand sanitizer throughout the hotel and we recommend fist bumps when greeting each other.
As for pictures, it will be up to the guest or vendor to determine how comfortable they are with pictures.
Something new this year, we now have a Grossfest backdrop and some of our guests have agreed to take pictures with fans in front of with your phone to post on Facebook or instagram with the hashtag #grossfest2020! Schedule will be posted soon.
Table pics are still a go, as long as everyone is comfortable with it.
Lastly, we want everyone to have fun and relax. We have a lot of great vendors and guests this year. This year is gonna be very unique, so bear with us as we all try and make the best out of a situation that is out of our control.
Thank you to everyone and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer you! See you soon!
