Food & Drinks

We will not be serving a full meal at the Bee, so be sure to eat beforehand. Save some space for Shake Shack, who is generously doing a complimentary ice cream scooping! There will also be light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Food and drinks are not allowed in the auditorium, so please plan accordingly.

Audience Mini-Bee

We will have an opportunity for everyone to participate in a written audience bee throughout the evening where we ask you to spell five of the most commonly misspelled words. Pick up a form as you enter the building or from a volunteer in the auditorium after the first round. It is free to enter and you have the chance to win a Shake Shack gift card.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fiona at We look forward to seeing you this Friday!

Spell well!
