THE DOUBLE EAGLE WEDDINGS, RECEPTIONS, BANQUET EVENTS AND CATERING GUIDELINES

1.  We will confirm specific menu item pricing 90 days before your function.  Any prices quoted prior to 90 days before the function are subject to change.  In the event of a sizeable cost increase, you may accept a reasonable substitute item or the new price.  Each room in the restaurant has it’s own décor furniture, tables and chairs.  Should you wish to move any décor furniture, tables and/or chairs, there will be a Set Up Fee. 

2.  No outside food or  beverage items of any kind may be brought into the Double Eagle, except wedding cakes produced in a certified kitchen.  Adult beverages can be handled any way you wish: A – all cash bar B – all host bar C- host bar only for certain items such as beer or wine D- host bar only for a certain $$

3.  Entertainment is always an option and we have a list of very fine musicians ranging from string quartets to Mariachis to jazz combos.  For weddings and receptions, we have recommendations for cakes, flowers, music etc.  And, yes, we have weddings at the Double Eagle.  Our Sales Staff will be happy to discuss arrangements with you.

4.  We offer suggested menus as examples..  If you don’t see anything you like on the menu, just tell us your budget and we will put together some recommendations for you. 

5.   All events require a deposit to hold the space and date.  We set the deposit amount.  This is a deposit, not a separate charge, and will be credited to the total charges at the end of the function. If the event is cancelled more than 30 days in advance, 50% of the deposit will be refunded.  Deposits for events canceled within 30 days of the event are not refundable.

6.  Final attendance numbers for your function are due a minimum of 48 hours in advance of your function.  This number will be the Guarantee.  If no final number is received by our Special Events Sales Team, the last number discussed will become the Guarantee.

9.  In order to reserve your space and date, a special event contract agreement must be signed.  No contract is binding unless and until the agreed deposit is paid to us. 

10.  Room configurations only work certain ways for proper service and for emergency safety considerations.  Please believe us when we tell you what will work and what will not work for your guests. We rent all parts of our facility to different groups.  Although we make every effort to keep your event in the room you requested, at times groups grow larger or smaller and we must reserve the right to move your event to the room most suitable in size to accommodate your group.

11.  The Facility Use Fee is determined by the number of guests, hours of use and the amount of food and beverages purchased.  You will be responsible for the expense of repair, replacement for any damage which occurs to floors, doors, ceiling, walls, windows, furniture or any fixture or part of the building as a result of your group function, your guests, vendors or anyone else attending as well as any loss of room rental, food and beverage revenue caused by such damage.

All wedding=s, wedding receptions, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners participants must designate a specific person as the group=s contact.  Only the contact person may give direction to our staff.  Any other person claiming such authority will be directed to the contact person.  If the contact person makes a request not listed on our Banquet Event Order, there may be a charge.  We are only responsible for actions noted on the Banquet Event Order.  Please review it carefully. Conversations about possibilities, what could be done or what usually happens are not commitments by the restaurant.  Changes in the agreed actions noted on the Banquet Event Order may require additional charges to you.

Staff will be present but they already have jobs to do to ensure your event is enjoyable. They cannot help you. If you need help, we can schedule as many staff people as you wish with prior arrangement.  The price is $20.00 per hour per person, 1 hour minimum.
