surprise cocktail party

Saw your space and thought it would be perfect to host a surprise party for my husband here. Would love to do it in the daytime and decorate with some balloons, having some appetizers and drinks. Set up as a cocktail party. Will be inviting 50 people but thinking more like 35-40 people will attend.

Outdoor 30th birthday with drinks

I'm looking for a great place to throw my 30th birthday party this year. I'm hoping to have a group of about 60-80 people for a casual (but possibly large) party... with appetizers and drinks. I'm going for a casual drop-by and hangout vibe... with music on a sound system (an iTunes playlist)... and beer and wine only. I've been toying with the idea of hiring a bartender or two to have a signature cocktail... but I'm not sure yet. Does this sound like something your space would work for? If so, I'd love to hear what you think a grand total cost would be. Lastly -- do you charge a separate fee for access to the outdoor areas?
