Lunch: We will take 45 minute ~1hr lunch break.
Also take note that we only rent this space at The Music Box and are fortunate to do so at a special rate, therefore keeping our course costs very low. We do not guarantee that you will find dishes, cups, cutlery, can openers, etc. as we share this space with many other groups. Plan your lunch so that you bring your own cups/cutlery( think environment friendly) and that you can have a picnic outside if the weather is fine, or inside by your table. Coffee, tea and some snacks will be provided.
There are plenty of small places for lunch close by in the area.
The Music Box (Upstairs)

There is space for about a dozen cars by the Music Box, if done carefully. Parking is free on Bellevue on Sunday, as well. A space close to the building must be reserved for our guest artist, so when you arrive please make sure one spot is left open near the building.
