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?

birthday surprise party at a gallery

Hello, I saw you gallery and the reviews... It seems like the place I was looking for. I am trying to organize a last minute surprise party for my daughter, turning 18. Ideally, we would like to have it on the 14th, from 6 to 10 but are flexible as long as it happens that weekend. The party would host families and friends so no crazy unsupervised teens. We are thinking of a buffet, some wine for the adults. Also some dancing may occur: is there a place for that (indoor or outdoor)? If available, could we come and have a look at the place?
