Private Event Terms & Conditions

 

A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required to reserve the date and time.  The remaining balance is due on the day of the event.

 

If cancellation of the class occurs less than 72 hours before the event, The Cooking Lab reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee of $200 (in addition to the non-refundable deposit) to cover the loss of business and cost of perishables. 

 

If The Cooking Lab deems it necessary to cancel your event due to extreme weather or an unforeseen emergency, we will use every effort to reschedule your event within a reasonable time frame.

 

The final headcount for the number of attendees is due 72 hours prior to the event.  We plan for the event based on the number you give us at this time. Because we have to purchase perishable ingredients for the minimum number of guests you tell us, this is the number of guests for which you will be charged on your invoice.  Example:  if you confirm for 10 and only 8 show up, the final invoice will reflect charges for 10.  Also, please note that if you confirm for 10 and 12 show up, you will be charged for each additional guest.
