QrunkFest 2K8 Rebirth

Well, basically my QF webmaster fell off the face of planet Earth and for the past month and I half I have been left with a domain and paying for web hosting that I can do nothing with. Kind of a bummer, and there is still time to get a website up if I can enlist the aid of someone. Just wanted to let everyone know that QF is STILL going to be awesome and don't forget about it =D 

Some things I still need to arrange

Security detail - (to watch the door and make sure teeny boppers aren't crashing our party/check ID's)

Make my guest list and send out invitations

hire a band to go on after the comedy routines

Make flyers.

March is going to be awesome, and since I have that whole month on vacation there is no reason to not have all the time to get everything worked out. Can't wait! It's going to be an awesome night.

I know it has been a hot minute since I updated QF, but as stated before everything is pretty much good to go. The Venue is reserved, most of the staff has been hired. Just looking for maybe a few more live acts to come and Dan promises to have the website up soon! I can't wait!

QRUNKFEST HAS A HOME! We will be kicking off from Ciao Event Hall in Ausitn, Texas at the Corner of I-35 and 2222.





The event hall is at 6019 N. I35. Don't forget March 29th 2008 QrunkFest will be going down. This is awesome news. I am very excited. We can run as far past midnight as we want, provide and serve our own alcohol, and they will clean up our mess XD. The website should be up soon my lovez!

The website should be launching this weekend everyone!  As well as our venue location announcement. I'm still working hard and diligently on planning QF and coming up with new awesome ideas! Can't wait for March.

Solid updates [Oct. 27th, 2007|08:22 am]

Our QF rep s driving to the venue this weekend for a tour, negotiations, and hopefully a contract signing. If so then expect the official QrunkFest location to be announced around the beginning of next week. Or I might hold off and announce it as the website goes live. I have hired a local Austin party and event supply company to provide PA systems, card and poker tables, DJ booth, lights, fog (what can I say, I love fog),  and all other sound and video equipment needed. Damn, QrunkFest is coming together so quick and so well. I'm tempted to move the date back into Feb, but I decided on a solid date and I should stick with it. My main concern was giving myself to get settled in Austin again anyway. Maybe a welcome home/house warming gathering should be held the month BEFORE QrunkFest. Now I just need to find someone who makes ice sculptures. =D

Some cool announcements! [Oct. 25th, 2007|04:45 pm]
QrunkFest 2K8 Rebirth

Man, it seems I am spending more time planning QrunkFest than actually working these days! Haha, a few cool announcements.

"The Margarita Man" man of Austin has agreed to sponsor!!!!!! So we will be provided with two margarita machines and his specialty top shelf mix all in exchange for serving the ritas in cups with his logo, using rita salt that brands his logo, and crediting him on the website when it goes live! How fucking awesome is that? QrunkFest is going to be, well....Qrunk!

Momma Suggs, our official stateside party planner and QrunkFest liason has a meeting set up with the venue owners for the place I am looking to get. They sounded very positive and enthusiastic about our business in their emails so hopefully we strike a deal and have an official venue to announce for QrunkFest's public party night!

A QrunkFest PayPal account has been verified and the appropriate address for it is the qrunkfest@gmail.com email address. I will also be including a "donate to QrunkFest" link on the website when it launches, but this is my treat to my friends so if we are close then by all means keep your money. It's mostly for random people who stumble across QrunkFest. If it's legal to charge $5 a head at the door then I am thinking about doing so. That's super cheap for open bar/all you can drink plus live entertainment and food. It would all go towards the venue rental. I am thinking about hiring the venue's security detail. If so then all invited guests will be on a list and issued a wrist band at the door so they can be admitted for free. Anyone who does not recieve an invite and is not on the list wll be issued a different colored wrist band when they pay they dirt cheap free of 5 bucks. Once again, QrunkFest FTW! If that's a bad idea and you think QrunkFest should be 100% funded by me and free to all then please let me know =) I always aim to please.

Fresh Suggs,
Evil Zack.

QrunkFest 2K8 Rebirth

Quick update -

Found 3 great places that both allow you to rent out at any time of the day you want, and allow you to bring in, serve, and supply your own alcohol without a TBC bartender at hand. Things I need to take into consideration now are max capacity, layout, and how they accomidate to music and video set ups. Expect an announcement soon.

Idea submitted, recieved, and approved....there will FOR SURE be a margarita mixer on hand. Why didn't I think of that?

I'm more than likely only going to advertise the 29th on the flyer, shirts, and banner and stuff. Since the other nights are private and by invite only there is no reason to advertise them. I don't want random people finding their way to my abode for our awesome private party.

Stubb's BBQ will be catering Fri night.

I still need name and addresses sent to QrunkFest@gmail.com so I can send your invitation out. =)

Still negotiating with two webmasters to build the site. Still let me know if you are interested. It is a paid job.

HIRED! [Oct. 24th, 2007|04:42 pm]
QrunkFest 2K8 Rebirth

Yes! enlisted someone today to help with market research, development, and planning. Momma Suggs (as I will here on out refer to her) has been involved with event planning, printing companies, and all that kind of stuff before and has a wealth of knowledge and hook-ups to offer to QrunkFest. So now I have someone to work out venue details, alcohol and liquor liscencing (if required), merchandise retrieval, and merchandise printing. She will also be working out all the legal issues as far as how to handle minors attending, whether or not random shows can be charged a smal $5 entrance fee (if you are a community member this fee is more than likely waived....but still 5 bucks for all you can drink and free shows...ummm, YEAH!) without being considered a bar, and all that good stuff.  She alone can't do everything so still feel free to send your suggestions, ideas, opinions, and offers my way. Especially if you come across a good deal. Current concerns are as follows.

1. Venue (looking for a place that will host past midnight, and allows you to provide your own alcohol without a TBC certified bartender present)

2. T-shirts - I currently have 4 bids from printing companies, but I am looking to take 10 bids before I choose who to go with. If you know someone let me know ASAP

3. Banner - I currently have 1 bid to make the QrunkFest 2K8 - Rebirth banner. Once again, if you have a hook up with a printer let me know.

4. Sponsorship - I currently am talking with a local Austin area beer barn about sponsoring and supplying all the kegs for the Sat. night open event. If you know anyone looking to advertise at the expense of free booze....lemme know ^_~

5. Those are my current MAIN issues. Once those things are worked out everything will be a cake walk. I will get more into intimate detail about our private Fri and Sun events when the website launches and the forums are up so we can keep talk about that private. I don't want word about who, what, when, and where those nights are being held so nobody un-invited shows up, but if we DO end up hosting Saturday at a venue then expect those private events to be just as fun, but more low key since most of the cool stuff will be used at the Sat night open event.  I am really looking forward to QrunkFest so stay tuned for further announcements about DJ acts, live music, and other entertainment as well as full details on where Sat. night will be held.

THANKS MOMMA SUGGS!

Opinions [Oct. 24th, 2007|10:05 am]

I have been giving more and more thought to hosting the private events at my place (Friday, Sun, Mon) and making the big Sat night event at a banquet hall, convention center, hotel ballroom, empty warehouse, or something like that. Anyplace that allows private parties will do. Nothing has changed yet, but the reason I have thought about moving Sat. night to a venue is I have a better chance of hiring the big name event I want to come, and we can fill a larger capacity. There will also be a stage for the comedy shows. I just need to hire a planner that can research prices, dates, and regulations. I will continue to research this though. Any opinions would be welcome. The biggest thing about holding it at a venue is that it would more than likely become strictly 21+ unelss they allow the hand stamp thing or something. I will look for large private party halls and what not where guidelines aren't followed. The last thing I need is a hotel manager down my ass. Maybe an un-used warehouse.

Let me know what you guys think.
