non profit fundraiser with cocktails

I am looking to throw a fundraiser for a non profit here. I plan on hosting 50-60 people for cocktails and appetizers after work on the 20th. I have a chef who will be making appetizers and we will be providing booze. Does that sound like a good fit for your space? Kitchen, bar and hangout space, is really all I need and I see you have it all. Also, is there a speaker system for playing music?

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?
