I have not been here since 2011, but I would love to go back. Even if it is only to see the flag of the USA covering the toilet instead of a door!! An evening to make you smile all the time.

I have made reservations before for a birthday party. It just depends on the size of the party. Call them and I am sure they will take good care of your needs.
