Get there on time because the doors open at 1911 (7:11) and close at midnight. All white or cream is mandatory.

On Saturday, The Finale of the week is the Kappa Kulmination, an all Black attire party at the JW Marriott, hosted by 95.7 Queen Bee and her hive of beauties. Ladies if you’re single and ready to mingle and prefer a college educated brother then you may want to attend all three nights. Over 20,000 men of Kappa Alpha Psi will paint Tampa Bay Krimson and Kreme, so come out and dream. But you know the old adage, ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy but you also know Kappas work hard but they play harder.
