Yeah, it just seems like each is 5 hours, totaling 10 hours. Looks right to me. We paid $275 for ours (and we had just one).

To PPs, they are definitely charging 10 hours each for 2 bartenders, because it is 20 hours total. (500 dollars / 25 dollars/hour = 20 hours). Similar for the waiters and servers.

I would query it.

no they defiitely charged you 10 hrs x 2 people x 25 = $500…. I guess bar set up is part of it. I mean there is some prep but 5 extra hours seems like a lot

I wouldn’t argue, but I’d politely inquire if there’s been a math error. Something along the lines of ‘I’m having a hard time making my numbers match up to yours; I see you have 2 bartenders, $25/hour each, 5 hours each; I come up with $250. Could you confirm where our discrepancy is?”

Chances are, it’s a math error and if it’s not, they’ll give you a more detailed breakdown. But no need to argue just yet!
