This will be one central tab. You can split payments between different credit cards.

We provide your host with tickets or wristbands that you will pass out to your guests. You get to decide what people can order with those tickets or wristbans.

Most groups choose to keep their tickets or wristbands open to any of our standard menu items (beer, wine, wells, and standard cocktails). 

You have the option of including or excluding  top shelf spirits, or limiting to beer and wine only.

For our day-to-day operations, we work with rotating food trucks. We have between one and four food trucks every single day! This schedule typically releases two months in advance. 

We have a permanent food truck, Kings County Kitchen, who provides all of our catering.. They set everything up and break everything down for you. Please visit their website for details.

You can use wristbands or tickets to host your guests at the food trucks on-site during your event. The food trucks would keep track of what your group orders. With this option, you can expect an average of $12-$15 per person, plus gratuity. Under this circumstance, we share your credit card authorization with the trucks and each one will charge your card at the end of the night.
