pop-up event and workshop

For the past 7 years, I have spoken in 600 schools around the country about Compassion and Kindness. In order to expand the reach of my message, I started an online community dedicated to the intentional practice of Love. We want to host an event that culminates a series of pop-up events that we will have hosted over the past few months - each one dedicated to practicing a piece of Love like Kindness, Commitment, and Empathy. The event will include some facilitated connection, live music, some dance, and some spoken word poetry. Currently, the plan would be to have this workshop, then have a social piece at the end which may or may not include alcohol. If it's a dealbreaker for you, please let me know.

leadership offsite meeting

I'm looking for an offsite meeting space for our leadership team on Wednesday. We like the idea of being able to have a meeting like setting and get some time outdoors as well. We'll mainly be discussing our annual plans and make use of the conference table and the TV to project. We'd serve breakfast and lunch catering in the space and leave for dinner somewhere nearby.

web series premiere

We are looking for a small space for a web series premiere. It would be a rather intimate event with just the cast, crew and friends. Ideally we'd like to do the 3rd, but are also considering the 10th pending cast availability. We saw your space on here and are very interested. Seems like a perfect fit for what we are looking for.
