A-No. You will have a event server that is all yours to bus tables and open and serve your food and wine.

Q-What if I get sick the day of my party?
A-We unfortunately have to charge you for the food and wine due to the fact that our events menu is by special order and we had already pre-bought everything in advance. We can reschedule your party and will work with you as we know unforeseen things do come up.
