are you sure you don’t need a liquor license still?  have you made sure the serve your own option is ok?  To me it doesn’t seem like that would be allowed still.  How would the art center monitor underage drinking?  Is someone going to be making sure the under 21’s aren’t serving themselves?


We had 110 people at our wedding.  We had 1 keg of beer, 36 bottles of wine (of which only 15 to 18 were actually opened), 96 glasses of nonalcoholic mulled apple cider, and unlimited soda.  The apple cider went fast.  The keg lasted all night.  I was surprised the wine didn’t go faster.  

To me it sounds like you have plenty.  That’s a lot of wine!  I would maybe buy 3  two liter bottles of coke and 1 rum bottle.  And the same ratio for tonic and gin.  I would buy 5 cases of beer.

@noritake22:  That calculator is awesome.  I ran it, and it looks like we guessed right on the quantities.
