large art show event

I am a designer and I am interested in setting up an art show on 7th through the 8th. I have a few questions: 1. How many people are allowed in the venue at any given time? 2. To set up is there allocated time where I can do that, or do I need to pay for those hours as well? 3. I am working with a brewer where I would develop a beer for this event, can I serve alcohol at this venue? I also have a friend that is a bartender and is licensed if you need some form of documentation. In regards to the amount of people, I put 500 throughout the entire event. I will be promoting this event so I'm not quite sure how many people will show up.

kids pop up art show

I want to book your space for my daughter's Pop up art show. A couple questions...1. What is the bathroom situation? 2. We want to hang a bunch of paintings in a gallery style - Are the walls already white? Can we put a bunch of nails in them? Do we patch them up, or do you? 3. Is there a "backstage" area to stow our tools, etc. 4. What is the parking situation? 5. Can we move the furniture? 6. Can we stick things to the window?
