Use ROMBucks to buy great food and drink from local providers - the finishing touch to the Friday festivities

Here's how to score your sumptuous snacks and dashing drinks:

  • You pay the vendors with ROMBucks, not with cash.
  • Before FNL, you can pre-purchase ROMBucks from the Admissions Desk from 10 am to 4 pm daily - the fastest way to nab your noms.
  • At FNL, you can buy ROMBucks at dedicated stations.
  • ROMBucks cost $6 each. (We can't refund unused ROMBucks, but they're good for the whole season.)

(May we at the ROM just add: calories schmalories. Life is short and food is good. If you eat it up, dance it off! Then come back 3 weeks later and do it again.)

SAY CHEESE! By entering the ROM Friday Night Live premises you consent to having your image recorded for promotional use.
