Can we rent glass ware through you if we do not want to use plastic included in the price per bartender?
Of course you can rent glassware through us! We will come up with a price quote based off our initial meeting.
What if we need more cups or ice then you provide?
We ask for 150.00 petty cash envelope at the start of each event. This way we can make ice runs and get extra product you may need without having to bother you while your event is going on. If we do not need to use any of the petty cash the envelope is returned to you at the end of the night. If we do have to use some of the money, there will be receipts for all purchases made from the petty cash.
Do you provide a mobile bar to serve from?
We can if you would like us to for an additional cost. Most times your caterer will provide us with the proper table and linens you will need. But we can most defiantly customize a look for your bar if you would like.
