WAY OT - Party Space

From: Stephen Haywood 
------------------------------------------------------
My wife wants to have a valentines party for 30 kids, and I need a place to
have it. There are a lot of "party" places with gimmick to go along with
them. I just need a room to decorate and that has tables and chairs. Any
thoughts?

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ You win for the off-topic post of the month, I hope. ;) My days of such things are long gone and I'm not sure what age and overall mix you are hosting... but: The CSOA and othershave held get togethers like that in the lobby of the Tivoli Center under the big chandelier. Not sure what "rent" with the tables and chairs setup is.... Chuck-E-Cheese Holiday Bowl Rave Theatre (has a party room, might still be free if you buy movie tickets, they will do group discounts) I did sound at one of these in a driveway at a parents house for about 100 high schoolers that was a blast... The kids loved the teckno.. (playing off a laptop running Linux - one on-topic point) Most churches.. The "Pumpkin Patch" or whatever it is called on Signal Mtn. Stephen Haywoods house. Some neighbor's house that is on vacation elsewhere.. Ed Kings garage (I'm sure you can just toss the Nova and old computers out of the way +0.5 on topic)

We used the UU church in San Francisco for a non-denominational (Freudian slip: I first wrote that as non-demoninational) memorial that was trying to be centrally located in the Bay Area, had also looked at a Quaker meeting house, decided on the UU because it better fit the tenor of the life of the deceased. Grange halls are built for just this purpose. We use a grange hall for many 4H meeting purposes, and have shared the space while people were using the kitchen to set up for parties and whatnot. See also Masonic/E. Clampus Vitus/Moose/etc lodges. Sonoma County has a "4H Center" which is a big-ass building run by the local 4H foundation. It's not cheap to rent, but free for 4H events and paid for by the rentals, so it goes to a good cause. Maybe there's something like that around for ya?

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ I've played a solo guitar gigs for wedding parties at the Ringgold depot. It's not too big, and it should be big enough for 30 people. I'm not sure what your price range, but it's not terrible. It might be too late and/or it might be already booked, but it won't hurt to go ahead and contact them.
