At this time yes, you can bring in an outside caterer or food, but in the near future, we will have a preferred catering list from which guests can order. Once the preferred catering list is implemented, outside caterers and food will not be allowed.

For outdoor events, we have spots for food trucks, however, additional fees will be incurred based on power and water usage.

Yes, we have a full kitchen that can be rented for use during your event for caterers or to prepare your own food. However, in the near future, we will have a preferred catering list from which guests can order. Once the preferred catering list is implemented, outside caterers and food will not be allowed.

What is your alcohol policy?

No hard alcohols are allowed on the grounds unless approved by EOTEC’s General Manager, with additional fees. Wine, champagne and beer are allowed, but they must be served by a licensed server and must be in clear cups. All other non-alcoholic beverages can be served in any style cup.

How do I book my event?

To book a venue, submit your event info through the form on the website. We will contact you if additional information is needed or if the venue is not available for your chosen dates. If no other information is needed, we will email you a contract to sign and return with a deposit.

Should we determine that a reasonable basis exists for concluding that there has a been a default, non-performance, or breach of any of the warranties, terms or conditions of this agreement by the client, or that the client has abandoned or cancelled the event, EOTEC has the sole and complete discretion to declare the event cancelled and EOTEC shall be authorized to retain the client’s initial deposit. The client shall also pay on demand to EOTEC any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by EOTEC in connection with such cancelled event.

Should the client decide to cancel, written notice is required. Upon receipt of the client’s written notice of cancellation, management will determine if a refund of the deposit is warranted and we will invoice the client for all applicable rental fees. Such fees will be due and payable 30 days from the date of invoice.
