    Did not mean to mis-lead. This was purely hypothetical. Yes, there are two places in town that folks chose between. But I was just thinking "out loud" for future reference.

    There was a local farmer with large operation that passed a few years ago. Many, many people knew him. His visitation was in one of his large barns. I thought that was very cool. Can't remember if there was a keg there, but I told the wife to have one at mine!

    Check with local cemeterys for size requirements, along with the size of burial liners the casket will have to fit in. We had a family build an "urn" for Arlington Cemetery. Some how they made it the exact size of the actual space it needed to fit into. They didn't think to check with anybody untill the night before. :upeyes:

    Stuff like that is wicked cool, I know in NY you can't serve food or drink in a funeral home, but in VA as long as you hire a catorer with a liquor license it's all gravy. Shouldn't be a problem off site.
