$250 service charge $600 food and beverage minimum ---------- $850The Annex adjoins their covered, heated patio. For an additonal cost, they could block out half the patio area for us, including one large 10-person table and one fire-pit table which seats 4 -6. This would, I'd think, almost certainly be enough space for us, but because they'd be forgoing food & beverage income from half of their busiest space at prime time on a Saturday night, the food and beverage minimum would go up by $125 / hour. For a 6-hour party, that would mean our cost would be:
$250 service charge $1350 food and beverage minimum ---------- $1600 which is well outside of mathowie's stated maximum.Or we could go with the 45-person plan @$850. For reference, we've currently got 19 "yes's" and 28 "maybes."
