Q. Can I bring in my own caterer or my own food?
A. Yes, you are encouraged to do so. Because of certain code issues and regulations, preparing of food on premises is not permitted. Use of the warming kitchen is included in the rental rate. Please remember if food is catered to ask your caterer about wait staff or staff to bus tables. These services are not included in the rental price.
Q. Are there any timing issues - can the florist, band or caterer arrive early, and if so, will there be an additional charge?
A. The florist, band, caterer, decortaor, etc. may arrive early at no extra charge. Please meet with or call The LOOM Administrators to arrange the time that any early arrivals may need to ensure the building/room is ready.
Q. Is the site handicapped accessible?
A. Yes. There is a handicap ramp on the parking lot entrance to the building. The restrooms are also handicap accessible.
Q. Can I have a D.J. or a band?
A. Yes. There are electrical outlets designated to handle a d.j. or band equiptment.
Q. How many other events are likely to happen on the same day?
A. Except for extraordinary circumstances, there will be a limit of one party per day. The LOOM is rented on a first come, first serve basis. The required paperwork and deposit will guarantee your date.
Q. What is the overtime policy? If I want to keep the party going, what will an extra hour cost?
A. For each addition hour beyond the agreed times on the contact, The LOOM will charge double the hourly fee. All music must stop by 11:00 p.m. regardless of any additional hours, due to sound ordinances. No alcohol may be served after 1:00 a.m., and no alcohol may be consumed after 1:30 a.m. due to State Law.
Q. What other items might affect the final bill?
A. Once a contract is signed, there are no additional fees added, unless the party goes overtime, there is destruction to the property, or there is cleaning beyond the normal clean-up. (An example of this would be a party with a food fight, food or beverages spilled on the furniture, dishes or glassware broken by unruly partiers, etc.) The fee is solely at the descretion of The LOOM Administration. To date, none of these have happened, and there have been no additional fees beyond those of the signed contract.
Q. Is there parking?
A. Yes. The LOOM has its own parking lot, and there is street parking on two sides of the building.
