Parking: If you can travel by car services such as Uber or Lyft, that would be ideal. Carpooling is also encouraged. Parking will be available at Terrapin, but those spaces are limited and will fill up quickly. Parking is also available on Paradise Blvd, which is the U-shaped side street that wraps around Terrapin. There will also be some available spots located at Power Partners across the street to the left, but much of that space will be for the professional cook teams only. They will be driving RVs, campers, trailers, and other large trucks that require bigger spaces.
