Your liability does not end when the event is completed. You can be held accountable for someone else's actions even after the event is over. A common misunderstanding is that general liability and homeowner policies will cover an alcohol-related claim.
The only type of insurance that will cover such a claim is liquor liability. Yes, we are insured but, your private event is not. However at an additional charge, we can get Special Event Coverage in less than 24 hours, which provides general liability, liquor liability, hired & non-owned automobile liability, rented equipment coverage and third-party property damage for over 100 types of events.

How much to tip?

The information provided on this article, suggest what are generally considered to be adequate amounts to tip Bartenders and Server for services rendered. It should be kept in mind that tips are a way of expressing satisfaction. Larger tips should be left for those who provide extraordinarily good service; smaller tips or no tip at all should be left when service is poor. These are by no means a set of RULES. Use your own judgment when you think amounts should be adjusted. Again, these are just suggestions. Tipping customs change in different parts of the world and even in different parts of the US. In New York City, one is expected to tip for many services and even when services are not provided.

 

In Washington, we get the tip from you, even if you don't want to tip! "Just kidding." In some countries, tipping is not considered polite and we heartily recommend that when traveling far from home, whether domestically or internationally, you read a good guidebook to learn about this important issue.
