Thanks for your comments. We think the architect (Larry Wenell of Wenell, Mattheis & Bowe in Stockton) did a wonderful job of blending old and new. The design and amenities make it a pretty special place for an event! We hope you come back soon.

Service dogs are permitted, of course. We do not allow pets in the galleries unless they are small, confined to a carrier and not creating an issue for other guests.
