"The studio is acoustically nice, and we've had compliments from previous performers on the room, our crowd, and our hosting abilities. We allow BYOB but do not serve alchohol, and we keep things nice and drama-free. No smoking in the yoga studio or other rooms. We provide light munchies, water, pop and coffee, and many of our guests bring food to share - we don't encourage or discourage this - just something some of our friends do to participate if they want to. We fill the room almost every show we produce, and we do most of the work to fill it."
