BHG Event Schedule
BHG has 10 tables in our event/play space
split between the main floor and the loft.
We have HUNDREDS of games in our game library
available for customers and community members
to use anytime when the play space is open!
Or bring your own game!
BHG staff are around to assist with game suggestions, locating games,
and on occasion may be able to teach a game to you and your group!
We have drinks and snacks available for purchase from our snack bar.
The drink options are a variety of waters, sodas, and alcoholic beverages (beer & ciders).
The snacks available are usually candy, granola bars, chips, and pretzels.
*Take Out/Food from outside of our space is welcome as long as
keeping our library games clean is a priority and people clean up after themselves.
Is there a time limit for using the play space?
BHG does not limit people's time in the play space, the playspace is open for use during our business hours except when we are hosting a structured or private event.
If you have a game that takes several-many hours to play we welcome it!
Can I make a reservation for a game table?
BHG does not reserve tables for anyone, including groups.
All tables are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
You can check on the space availability by calling ahead!
How many people can the biggest table accommodate?
We have a few large tables/booths that can comfortably seat 8 people but can squeeze in up to 10.
Are dogs allowed in the event/play space?
Dogs are allowed! We even have some dog treats behind the counter that the staff love to offer our furry friends! We do not have any breed bans.
The only dog rules are: all dogs must be on a leash at all times, no dogs can be left unattended, and dogs must be kept out of the main walkways. As a forewarning: if your dog acts aggressive, excessively barks/whines, or causes other patrons distress you may be asked that your pet leaves the space.
Does BHG host birthday parties or private parties?
BHG does not currently host any birthday parties or private parties due to COVID & staffing shortages.
BHG has in the past offered the service of hosting private parties.
This service may return in the future.
Can I host a party in the play space?
All groups are welcome!
For groups of 10+ (more than 1 large table of people), calling ahead is greatly appreciated!
BHG does not reserve tables or the loft space for groups at this time.
BHG does have rules regarding large groups in the space and parties:
- BHG does not allow party/celebration decorations in the space.
- BHG does not allow the lighting of candles.
- BHG does not allow aspects of parties/celebrations that dominate the play space or make it difficult for staff to work or other customers/people to use the space. This is up to our discretion.
- Staff may ask a large group/party to change tables or ask for something about the party to change.
- If children are present in a large group/party, adults are expected to supervise them at all times and help the children maintain inside voices and walking feet.
- Please be respectful of the space, other customers, and staff. Thank you!
We appreciate your understanding!
