Call for ProposalsRequest for Theatre/Dinner packagesThe Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation, a not for profit organization which owns and operates The Garrick Theatre, is seeking proposals from private restaurateurs in the region for packaged dinner prices in conjunction with the theatre's Saturday Summer Music Series. While there may be some form of food service available at the Garrick Annex in 2012, the objective here is to provide The Garrick's patrons with a variety dinner options for various restaurants in the region prior to attending events at The Garrick. When seeking tickets for any SSMS event, patrons will have the convenience of purchasing one of the dinner/theatre packages at The Garrick's box office. Please note that lunch options are also acceptable as some people attending evening performances may prefer to go out for lunch, and there will be at a least a couple of afternoon performances in the 2012 SSMS.Proposals must include the following:1) description of the menu item(s) to be offered for lunch or supper, as you wish them to be described in the theatre/dinner packages on our web site and in any other promotional materials2) the price at which you wish your portion of the package to be offered. The total price must be a round number (eg., $15.00, $18.00, $20.00) including HST but excluding gratuities. You may include more than one menu option if all options are offered for the same price. We can accept only one package price per establishment. 3) the hours at which the lunch and supper options will be available (note that most people will prefer to be finished their meal and leave for the theatre by 30 minutes or more prior to the start of the performance, depending on the location of the restaurant. Most evening main stage performances begin at 8:00 p.m.; afternoons - 2:00 p.m.). Due to the large number of food service establishments in the region, we will not be able to offer dinner/theatre packages for all. Proposals will be assessed on the their merits in three key areas:1) creativity, quality and variety of the menu options2) price 3) locationThe Foundation reserves the right to decline any and all proposals.Closing date: April 6 (5:00 p.m.)Submit proposals to:Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation, P.O.
