rooftop mixer for a church

We are looking to host a rooftop mixer for our church. There will be 80 people in attendance. We will serve drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Also, we will have a performance by an acoustic guitarist. Please advise on availability of your rooftop space, and whether your other space(s) are adjoining and could be available for this date as well. We would love to be able to accommodate more people if possible.

headshot mini-session

I'm a local photographer, and I'm interested in checking out your space if possible. I'm planning a headshot mini-session that I'm considering expanding to a community event with some acoustic performances and a few small vendors. The date will either be the 25th, in the afternoon, or on the 27th, beginning at 5:30 PM. It will last between two and three hours. I think your space might work for me, but I’d love to come check it out in person, to look at things like location of outlets, general lighting, etc. I'll be in your area on Saturday late afternoon/early evening. Would it be possible to come take a look sometime between 4 PM and 7 PM? Thanks so much!
