Boat Cruise/Boarding FAQs
What time does the Boat board/leave the Wherehouse?
The Boat (Voyager) will dock right at the TRUE Skool 10 Year Family Reunion location (Wherehouse 818 S. Water Street) and will begin boarding by 7:30pm and leave from there promptly at 8:00pm. WE WILL NOT HOLD THE BOAT and NO refunds will be issued if you are late or forgot your ID.
You do not have to attend the TRUE Skool 10 Year Family Reunion to attend the Boat Cruise, but it is HIGHLY recommended!
I purchased my ticket(s) online or from a TS Board Member or Staff, how do I board without an actual ticket?
If you purchased your ticket online, your name will be on a boarding list when you enter the boat. To board the boat you will need to show a state issued ID or Drivers License, NO EXECPTIONS. This is a 21+ cruise so it is important you have ID, we cannot hold the boat if you forgot your ID and NO refunds will be issued.
If you purchased more than one ticket your name will be listed as many times as tickets purchased. Obviously these are for people besides yourself and they will have to board at the same time as you. If you expect them to board at a different time than you, please email us the names to firstname.lastname@example.org and include their email addresses for each ticket you purchased by July 14th and we can send them an email confirmation with these details so they can board separately.
What activities are on the Boat Cruise?
There will be free food on the boat.
There is a cash bar (they also accept credit cards).
Festa Italiana will have a fireworks display around 10-10:30pm while we are out on Lake Michigan!
We will have two DJs, Bizzon and KidCut Up onboard providing great music throughout the entire cruise!
Do we get in to the after party for free after the boat cruise?
YES! When you board the Boat Cruise, you will receive a hand stamp that will give you FREE entrance to the After-Party at Hot Water/Wherehouse’s new outdoor patio area after the board cruise ($10 minimum door donation otherwise). The boat will drop us off right at 11:00pm at Hot Water/Wherehouse for the after party! Kiki Champ and DJ Whyte Nite will be on the tables all night!

March is Women's History Month and what a better way to celebrate than with an all woman artist gallery at Studio Lounge! The From Here to Her Artist Collective organized the show and supported TRUE Skool by accepting donations at their gallery opening. They raised $355 for TRUE Skool's Be Girl Project! We are grateful not only to be included in this event, but to also have the opportunity to have our very own DJaylen and Savannha perfom as well!
