A:  The per person price of your party allows use of the room for 2.5 hours.  Not automatically included in the 2.5 hours are a guaranteed 30 minutes prior and 30 minutes following for setup and breakdown of your event.  Immediately following the 30 minutes allowed for breakdown, the next party host is allowed to enter the room to begin their decorating or the restaurant staff is allowed to start seating general guests.  These time restraints are firm. You do have the option of adding additional time to your party.  The cost is $50/half hour and you can add as much time as your would like.  This additional time must be added at the time of booking.  The additional time charge is added whether or not you use it. 

Q:  30 minutes?!  I need more time than that to setup!  

A:  No problem!  If you are an early day party you can usually access the restaurant by 10:30 to begin decorating.  If you are scheduled in the afternoon or evening, you can add additional time at $50/half hour.

A:  We love decorations and look forward to seeing what you can do to make the room your own!  Our only limitations are:
