We  are SO sorry,  but we have to take a pass on parties this year. We are too busy (coming out of the pandemic restrictions) to accommodate the business we have been seeing and to try and fit in parties on top of that.
The space that we would use for parties has now been utilized for guests waiting for tables for the restaurant. 
We hope to revisit parties in 2022
