- we now will only have 30 tickets available

- it will be a socially distant dinner - if you are only 2, only 2 people will be at your table and you may request a table for your own pod (group of friends).

- we will limit the number of people in the Galleries to view the Art Exhbition

- we will ask that you wear a mask indoors.

- if the State mandates no outdoor events and we need to cancel for this reason, we will refund your ticket purchase.
