PARKING:
Due to the ROCKY HORROR PUB CRAWL's popularity, parking may be more of a challenge than usual for people visiting the Virginia Highlands area on March 11th. We suggest looking over this map (click to enlarge) and see where some of your closer options are. There is free parking, paid parking and metered parking in various locations within easy walking distance of pub crawl registration Diesel Filling Station (beginning of crawl) or the end of the event near Plaza TheaterNOTE: The CVS parking lot (across from Diesel Filling Station) has automated paid machines now.

We also suggest you take a LYFT to the event, ESPECIALLY if you plan on drinking any alcoholic beverages – maybe even share a ride with friends. If you do use LYFT, make sure to use the code "Markster" for a $20 $50 free credit towards your first LYFT ride.

Please make sure to bring your Xorbia ticket with you for scanning. Everyone who is registered must go through the line (which means you can not register for your friends, even if you purchased tickets for them as they will need to also come through the line). A valid 21+ I.D. is required at both registration and also before entering all participating venues. If you have any questions about this event, feel free to ask Registration staff when checking in! Registration ends at 10pm – all shots should be claimed by 11:30pm!

EVENT PHOTOS:
After you make it to Diesel Filling Station for registration, make sure you go inside and get your photo taken by Lee of Workman Reflections Photography. All photos are FREE and complimentary for all attendees. A few days after the event ends, we'll upload the images via RockyHorrorPubCrawl.com for you to view/tag/share. Costumes not required to take photos, also show off your new commemorative RHPC t-shirts! Lee will also be roaming the Plaza Theater after 11pm so if you see him, smile and say SWEET TRANSVESTITE!!! NOTE: Photo area at Diesel Filling Station will close at approx. 10:30pm, with registration ending at 10pm.

BE SAFE ON THE STREETS:
When walking to the different pubs PLEASE use the sidewalks or crosswalks. PLEASE use the designated crosswalks and look BOTH WAYS before crossing the road. In addition to keeping an eye out for yourself, also watch for other attendees to make sure they also stay safe. Although all of the participating pubs are on the same side of the street, attendees will still need to cross at certain intersections to continue on their journey to the final stop at Plaza Theater.

BRING CASH!
To make things run much more smoothly, please BRING CASH (to pay for any drinks or food you may purchase on your own). Once you place and receive your order at the bar (if not at a table), please move away from the bar area to give others a chance to place an order. The 5 official pubs (leading to Plaza Atlanta) have a full menu (we've posted links to their menu's further down on this page) and everything is good (we’ve eatten at each venue multiple times so we know!). We highly encourage you to take the time to grab either an appetizer or full meal at one of the venues to help show your support so we can do this again. And please, remember to tip your wait staff.

"PROPS" FOR RHPS:
One of the most fun and unique elements of seeing THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW "live" is the crowd interaction, where attendees in the audience bring "props" to use during the show. The host venue, Plaza Alanta, allows most props that are typically used during a viewing of RHPS but not all. Click the graphic and see what is (and is not) allowed. Feel free to bring your own props if you'd like to be an interactive part of this amazing evening.
