The cost to extend the reception time is $150.00 per half hour plus tax. It is an additional $2.00 per person per half hour for the open bar, plus service charge and sales tax. The other thing that we recommend is to increase the hors dΓÇÖoeuvres amounts for this extra time. This can be accomplished by adding stationary hot or cold hors dΓÇÖoeuvres. Please consult your Messina event planner for guidance.
