gathering a small team for an offsite

I am running a software and creative services company and we are gathering our small but friendly team for an offsite. We will do a few presentations, a lot of conversations and will use white board heavily to brainstorm. Our Creative Director (who is also a professional photographer and videographer would love the space and I am hoping to surprise him with it). We are also planning to have light breakfast and lunch in the space, but if that is undesirable, that's fine, we can skip that part.

birthday gathering with coworkers

Wondering if your space would be available, Saturday evening for a birthday gathering? If so, is it possible that I come take a look? I've had this indoor/outdoor rooftop vision in mind. I have a list of 40-50 professional coworkers, few close friends and close family members. Please let me know.
