Cancellation forfeits deposit. A guaranteed head count and 50% payment is due 30 days prior to the event. Guest count may be increased after such time but not decreased.

A: We prefer cash, cashier’s checks, debit and credit cards, but will also accept personal checks.

Q: When do you need my final guest count?
