“We had a wonderful experience!  Everything was perfect! Everyone was so welcoming, and the space was great. It was so easy to arrange set up and work with caterers.  Parking wasn’t an issue since there’s paid parking around the corner that always had availability.  Being able to use the kitchen saved us a lot of money since we could make coffee there instead of having it delivered.  We really enjoyed both the space and the Friends!  I’d highly recommend the venue.”
