H's 10 year high school reunion is coming up and I've been pushing for us to go since some friends will be there, we'll have built in sitters, etc. Well, we just got the info for it and apparently there's no open bar because they didn't want to make all the pregnant ladies sad.
Are you fucking kidding me? The food better be awesome.
It was $150 per couple (no single tickets). There were discount tickets available ($100/couple) if you bought them before a certain day. The card they sent out was post-marked 2 days after the discount ticket cut-off date.
In addition to that, you had to pay for your own meal and booze on top of the admission fee.
We did not go. I checked the FB page and only 10 couples attended. My graduating class was 250 people.

My 20-year is in a few weeks. There will be no open bar, although I think we get two drink tickets? H will be using all four of ours, obviously. It wasn't cheap, either. I think it was $150 per couple and that's just for heavy apps and two drinks.
Fucking bogus, man. But it's the 20-year, so I'm still going.
As someone who has been pregnant twice and sat through stuff like this I would be VERY pissed as a non-pregnant. Don't punish me because of the occupied utes! I put in my time and now let me enjoy myself.
I didn't even consider going to my 10 year reunion. Because I live in Utah and I knew there'd be no alcohol unless I brought it or bought it. And I'd be one of maybe five or ten people drinking and there would be awkward silences and glances every time I took a sip.
I hated high school anyway and was still in touch with the only people I wanted to be in touch with.
No bar or no open bar? I'd never expect drinks to be covered at a reunion. It isn't a wedding so I can pull out my wallet. (our reunions are at a bar, no cover or tickets, appetizers are free but you pay for drinks).

If it makes you feel any better, I didn't even get invited to mine because the alumni association is run by lazy fucks who didn't even try to find people who aren't on FB. I really only want to go so I can show off baby pictures to new people, but still. Annoying. If you google my maiden name and my old email address, my new email address comes up on the first page. Not hard!
