P.S. There is limited street parking on 17th Street N.W., but we have secured the OAS parking lot, which has 100 parking spaces, accessible off of C Street. Please do not park immediately in front of the OAS building in the spaces that have country designations. They are reserved for OAS ambassadors.


P.P.S. Please understand that, while everyone is assigned table seating, the tables are always somewhat overbooked. If there were more tables, there would be considerably less room to dance, which would frustrate the purpose of the evening. We also provide every chair the OAS has available.


P.P.P.S. To avoid misunderstandings at the front desk, please be advised that any gentleman who is not attired in either white or black tie will not be admitted entrance.
