- The invitation says that the venue is 21+. I'm not yet 21
but I'm important and smart and angry! Damn the man! Damn the
Fight the power, kid. But the sad truth of San Francisco's
liquor laws is that there is no way for a bar to ever allow any
customer in who is under 21, ever, even if they were to choose not to
serve alcohol that night. Nightclubs and concert halls that are 18+
are technically restaurants: they have kitchens and serve
dinner. DNA Lounge doesn't have a kitchen, so it's technically a

- Am I actually invited? I'm very insecure, and so this isn't

Also, a bus will be available to transport party guests
between Mountain View and San Francisco. The bus will depart from
the Building 21 parking lot on the Netscape Campus at 7:00 PM.
and will leave the party at midnight.
Bus seats were available on a first come, first serve basis but
all the seats are spoken for now. Sorry.
If you're taking the bus, don't forget your ID, or you won't get in!
We're offering the bus as a favor to minimize the chances that
anyone would drink and drive. Mozilla.org and Netscape (who is paying
the bill) are not liable for any accidents or problems that might
occur on the bus ride. Folks who aren't comfortable with this
disclaimer shouldn't take the bus.
