The answer is, YES.

Private events will typically be hosted and paid for by one individual or group which is held for invite-only guests. A public event can be hosted, but the payment is handled by the customer directly. There of course are some instances where we could see a blend of both private and public options by way of payment and or type of guest services.

+ do you serve year round?

We wish the Midwest climate afforded us the ability to serve year round. Unfortunately, the weather keeps us tucked away for most of the fall and winter. We typically stop serving in November and relaunch our seasons in April. We can always discuss options for event requests during our "off season" schedule. Do not hesitate to reach out!

+ what forms of payment do you accept?

For our public outings we accept cash and card. For private events we can accept all forms of payment including cash, card and check.
