outdoor bday lunch / dinner party

I love your space! I wanted to host my bday lunch/dinner party in the space. We are using this event to raise money for a community garden. We plan on cooking onsite and using the kitchen space would be great. Not sure if you have an outdoor space (parking lot or something). We would also bring a grill to use outside if that is permitted.

backyard wedding

i am getting married on the 3rd. I have been looking for a backyard to rent for my event as i want an outdoor wedding. Would your place be available for my date? And would the set up time need to be included in the time of the rental? as cocktail hour would probably start at 5:30pm, but we would need a few hours to get everything set up.

I hope you are having a good afternoon. We are looking for an outdoor space to host a social for our start up. We likely will have the event catered or have food brought in and will likely have beer and wine. We are a small group. :) Is there any place to stage food? Tables?
