To my horror I woke up to a text message from the boss man, wanting me to find a venue for him. On a Saturday… in DECEMBER!!!
Are you kidding me? Who starts their searching now? It is O-C-T-O-B-E-R!!! I mean at this point you are fucked if you don’t have a costume OR a place for your holiday party.
I have planned some great family birthday parties, always have a large group for my birthday festivities and have worked as the event coordinator for some local companies. I love parties!!! Not only have I been doing it for a while, I have been doing it in this area. I know that you need to get it on the books by February…if you want something that has power, heat and parking.
To further limit the already limited number of options, he added the rest of his criteria’s:
Allows outside catering
Option for a DJ
Okay so NO Hotels, NO Restaurants or MOST funky venues on the eastside. I looked at our surrounding city but found the same limitations with size and date. UGH! Basically I am screwed Watch this be a case of me eliminating venues based on what he asked me to find and he comes up with a place….on a different date….fully catered and every other exact opposite of his original request.
ANY HOO! I found a site and just had to rave about it being exactly what I would do…if I had a popular rental venue. It is a hip, open studio with an outdoor patio overlooking the skyline. In each of the drop downs it referenced the FAQ’s tab as the best place for information about the venue…and encourage you to check it out before you submitted your request.
True to their word, it answered all of my questions. The only thing that I was not able to find out was their availability. They happened to address this very subject as something you can only get by submitting the request form. So I did just that.
At the bottom of the form it asks for you to check a box to verify that you have in fact visited the FAQ’s page. Because…get this…..if it was already answered there…..they would not respond to your questions.
Hahahahah Someone is serious about their FAQ’s
