WHY MAGOOBYS EVENT CENTER?
(Okay, who’s kidding who? It’s MAGOOBYS JOKE HOUSE but this sounds better)
Yes, we’re one of the top 10 comedy clubs in the country. And, yes, our cozy little bar Wits End Saloon offers one of the largest selections of whiskeys in the state and has been voted ONE OF THE BEST BARS IN BALTIMORE COUNTY. But the reason we think you should let us host your event is because we’re really freakin’ good at this too! We’re not an overbooked hotel running a bazillion events at once and acting like you matter. We’re not a busy restaurant packing you into our basement or corner room and forgetting you’re there. On the day of your event the only thing that matters to us is YOUR SATISFACTION. You have our guarantee that all aspects of the day or evening event will be handled flawlessly by our professional and almost obnoxiously courteous staff. Our delicious food options will be served on time and HOT (unless you order the cold lunch buffet. Then it’ll be, ya know, um, not hot.)
HERE’S A BUNCH OF OTHER REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD PAY US TO HOST YOUR EVENT
OUR PRETTY MUCH PERFECT SEATING LAYOUT
We can accommodate up to 300 people and because our space offers tiered seating like a movie theater, all of your guests will be able to actually SEE THE SPEAKER. Try that in a hotel where the guests seated in the back of the stuffy banquet room might want to bring binoculars. If your event is more intimate, our floor seating capacity alone is over 100 people comfortably (not like where the restaurant has your valued clients/friends/employees seated on folding chairs crammed next to the waitress station) or you’re welcome to seat your guests on the tiers and use all that open space for a limbo contest. Hell, you paid. Do whatever you want.
WE PROMISE WE WON’T HAVE TO CALL “WHATSHISNAME” TO GET THE SOUND WORKING
Our state of the art Audio/Visual system will be ready for you the moment you walk in the door. Unlike a hotel or restaurant, we actually use this stuff every day so it’s permanently installed. When you check out the space and look at the walls and see like, gee I don’t know, about $40,000 worth of acoustic sound tiles, you’ll know we take this stuff really seriously. Our mixing board has more buttons to push than your siblings. We also offer a high end digital projector and a way bigger than you’ll probably need projection screen.
WOW DO WE HAVE PARKING
I mean it’s crazy. Tons. Like everywhere. A giant and FREE parking lot for crying out loud.
ALL TYPES OF EVENTS WELCOME
Okay, there might be health code rules that prohibit us from hosting anything kinky but other than that we’re open to just about whatever. Here’s a few ideas: corporate meeting, fundraiser, retirement party, awards ceremony, chewing gum convention, wine tasting, bar mitzvah (yes, we’ve done a couple), wedding, divorce party, video game tournament, hipsters buying vinyl records show, fashion show, speed dating event, holiday party, Charleston dance marathon (pretty retro!), film screenings, Uncle Tommy’s Wake, spelling bee, political rally (keep it civil), board game convention, motivational speakers, learning seminar, very small circus (but be nice to the animals), graduation ceremony, birthday parties, antique shows, product demonstrations, really boring stuff we can’t even think of right now… And that’s just to name a few!
