Event Planning at the Kennedy School

We're finishing up on the final reconfirmations for a Search Party scavenger hunt through the Kennedy School this Friday. Even though we've run this game many times, the same questions always come up. Here's some thoughts on how to make your Kennedy School scavenger hunt a successful one:

  • Starting and ending location. No matter what, when booking with us, we will always reserve a private event room so that we're not crowding into a public space.
  • Food & Drink. Not only do we cover the private room reservation, but we always provide limited sips and nibbles before, during or after the game (depending on your preference). If you want more food or want to have a full lunch/dinner before or after, just ask us for additional choices ranging from deli trays to carved roast stations!
  • Drinking during the game. We assume you're talking about the fresh (Bull Run!) drinking water that is in abundance all over the facilities. No? Well, we can add an open bar, no-host bar, or even provide drink tickets for game players to grab a fine McMenamins' beer made on the premises or a killer glass of wine from the Edgefield Winery while your group in the middle of running their amazing race.
  • Hours. Outside of our game area, there are limited facilities open in midday hours Monday through Friday. We always advise the meeting planners to pay attention to which restaurants are open before or after the event. The one facility that we always are asked about is the Boiler Room. The hours on the Kennedy School website are not always right. Here's our information as of the day of this posting: Monday–Thursday, 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.; Fridays, 2 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.; Saturdays, 12 noon to 2:30 a.m.; Sunday, 12 noon to 1 a.m.
  • Something special. If you already have a wedding or another event setup at the Kennedy School, consider booking with us; we'll be the talk of the group!

No matter what, imagine the fun you and your guests will have at the 1911 Kennedy School, a building rich in history and ambiance. Just don't get sent to the Detention bar.
