ZOMBIE AFTER-PARTY AT ELYSIUM: After Zombie Skate 5, head down in all your zombie gORY and mention the code word "Lowell's Birthday" to get in free for 80s night!! ************************************************************** ZOMBIE STREET TEAM!!! We will be having a Zombie Street Team on Friday, the 13th to promote the skate. The plan is to meet up and start the horde on 6th street around 11pm. Right when the victims are most vulnerable. We ask that you show up already zombified and, if you have skates, wear 'em! We will be popping inside of bars along the "walk" so be aware of 21+ requirements and have your ID. Those under 21 are allowed to join, but if you are under 18, you MUST have your parent or guardian with you at all times. Under 21s can hang outside the bar and join up to continue the walk. Everyone must be made up into a zombie since that's the whole point. To promote we will be handing out flyers for the skate. You will also be in pictures and on a video that we plan on making into a short montage. It's also important to add that we will be in zombie character, so growling, moaning and zombie gestures (dragging legs, arms out, etc.) are needed to make it look good. Lunging towards people is okay, touching them is not. Please don't be a zombie jerk, and harass those that don't want to be bothered. You'll be able to tell who likes it and who doesn't, so please be aware. We want everyone to enjoy the zombie fun! The meet up spot and time will be announced here, on this invite, a few days before the night.
