    One of the best views in the city and a unique venue. We had our rehearsal dinner here and everyone enjoyed themselves. There is a list of vendors for catering to choose from and they pretty much let you decorate however you want- candles do have to be covered. There is indoor and outdoor space, your guests have access to the grounds, event room, statue, museum. AV equipment includes speaker system, screen and projector. Clarence was a pleasure to work with, inviting and knowledgeable. He was willing to do whatever he could to make things easy and a success.
