educational video on wine pairings

We will be hosting an event next month that will feature wine and infused chocolate pairings. ABC7 News would like to film us leading the wine pairings at a cool space before the event and this place looks perfect! We'd only need the venue for 2- 3 hours max on the 25th for the filming. It's an educational video comparing profiles.

small indie feature on the rooftop

I would like to ask you about the availability of your rooftop. We are filming a small indie feature and we LOVE your rooftop! We need to film one scene in a rooftop and yours looks so interesting! We wonder if you have it available on May 25th? Also and importantly: we need to film overnight in the rooftop, is that possible in your property? The scene is a night scene, we would arrive at 6pm so we can have 1.5-2h to set up while there's light and then we would film the scene until about 5am, when light starts to appear. We would then load out and be out by 6am! We are about 30 people, and we don't all need to be in the rooftop at the same time - is there a space you have for holding people? Let me know your thoughts.
