Introduction: Greetings, I'm Craig Dane owner/operator of CDE event bartending. Thank you for the opportunity to quote your event and for your interest in CDE! Our fee includes one extra hour of prep, my portable bar set up if needed, extra coolers/metal bin, cocktail ice bin, barware tools, cocktail straws and napkins, trash can, floor mat, all detailed consultations n constant clean-up. Fee is plus client gratuity of your choice based on your level of satisfaction. Fee assumes use of a guest tip jar. Without one add $15 per hour per bartender. Please see over 150 five star reviews on Thumbtack.com, Gigmasters.com, GigSalad, our website, and see our Profile and accolades! We have earned Thumbtack's 2021 Top Pro honors EIGHT years running! Less than 4% of pro's receive this in any one single year! After deposit I will send you detailed recommendations on all product types, brands and quantities for your shopping list. Our bartenders are assigned the week of the event. We can also offer a server or two if your event warrants it. For liability reasons when serving an open bar our usual window of service is FOUR hours plus the one extra prep/set up hour. Five is the max. Beware the "discount" bartender. This service business I created is my livelihood, not my side job. You only have one chance with your all important event and you'll typically get what you pay for. Top notch professional service providers are what you'll get at CDE! A $75 non-refundable deposit in either my Venmo.com account (CraigDane) no fee, CashApp ($craigdane61) no fee or Paypal (my email) pay 2.9%fee, reserves your date. Pouring permit/license #247654. Should your venue require LIABILITY INS. please go to THEEVENTHELPER.com for reasonable one day rates. Thank you for your consideration, we're here to serve! Craig Dane I am also passionate and very much enjoy being a WEDDING OFFICIANT! Please see my reviews/photos with my bartending services.
