Most times draft beer and wine is included in your ticket and you are encouraged to bring your own food like pizza or party trays. If you aren't going with a group of people this is a great way to meat "pun intended" new people in the area.

Also if you plan on going, get ready to hoot and holler and have a good time. Plus make sure you bring a cooler just in case you are a big winner and you will be taking lots of meat home with you.

Most times these events also have 50/50 raffles and auctions so bring extra money. You may also want to make sure you have plenty of singles to buy tickets for each and every round.
