Agreement & Liability Waiver

In anticipation of participating in the activities involved in a paint-and-sip party (hereinafter “Event”) organized by 11th Avenue Artistry, LLC, d/b/a SIP Parties, of St. Charles, Illinois (hereinafter “SIP Parties”), as well as other good and valuable consideration,
I, ___________________________________, hereby agree as follows:

For the sum of thirty-five dollars ($35), I will be allowed to participate in the Event, which is to take place at [Time] on [Date], at [address, room number, etc.].  My right to participate in the Event is not transferable to any third party, unless SIP Parties gives its written consent to such transfer and said third party agrees to be bound by the terms of this agreement.  My payment to SIP Parties is non-refundable.  However, SIP Parties may, in its sole discretion, choose to provide a refund in cash or a gift certificate toward attending a future event.

The Event is a party in which other attendees and I will receive a painting lesson while being served food and/or drink.  I understand that there are certain inherent risks associated with participating in the Event, including, but not limited to: paint stains and other damage to clothing and other personal property.  I assume full responsibility for any harm, loss, or damage that may happen to me or to my property; and I release and discharge SIP Parties from any and all liability, of any sort whatsoever, whether caused by me, SIP Parties or their agents, or any third party.

I understand that a third party, unaffiliated with SIP Parties, will provide food and/or alcohol at the Event, and that my fellow attendees may consume varying amounts of alcohol.  I declare that I am of legal age to consume alcohol.  I agree to limit my consumption of alcohol to a safe and reasonable level (including, if I so choose, none at all), and I shall make provisions for transportation to and from the Event, as necessary.  I am solely responsible for managing my own allergies, especially food allergies.

I agree to follow the directions and instructions of SIP Parties and its agents.  I agree to use reasonable prudence, caution, and common sense at all times during the Event, as well as in my coming and going.  I understand that SIP Parties, in its sole discretion, may have me removed from the Event, and that, in that case, I shall not be entitled to a refund or to any other damages or reimbursement.  I shall indemnify and hold harmless SIP Parties against all claims and causes of action that may arise based on my conduct at the Event, as well as in my coming and going, whether that conduct consists of negligence, recklessness, intentional acts, or otherwise.

I have read the following Liability Waiver and agree to be bound by its terms.  By signing below, I forfeit all right to bring a suit against SIP Parties for any reason.  In return, I will be permitted to participate in the Event.  This waiver shall be binding on me and on my heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns.  If for any reason some part of this waiver is held to be unenforceable, then the rest of this waiver and all of its remaining terms shall nevertheless remain in full force.  This waiver shall be governed by, and construed according to, the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to conflicts of laws principles.  Any lawsuit or other proceeding shall be filed only in a federal or state court having jurisdiction in Kane County, Illinois.  No oral representations, statements, or inducements that would conflict with this waiver have been made to me.
