summer barbecue

We're a liberal art school that focuses in performance, visual, media and business for the arts. We're looking to host a "Senior Send-Off" summer barbecue socializing type of event for all the high school seniors (our new freshman). We thought it would be a great way for the students to get to know some friendly faces before they start this big adventure. It's my first time using peerspace and this space looks great! Especially with the indoor/outdoor rooftop aspect. Were probably looking at the 60-70 person range. The event time would be from 2-4 but we'd probably need an hour of set up time that I can definitely include for booking. Questions I have: Do you allow for a caterer? If so, do you have a private list, or is it open? Also, do you have speakers to play music from? Nothing crazy, just background. Do you need additional info from my end? There will be no alcohol as most of our guests will be under 21 attending with parents.
