Birthday Parties

BIRTHDAY PARTIES !!

Get U Cooking is the new birthday party place in Fort Myers.  We know that a birthday is a very special day in your child’s life.  We want to help make their birthday memorable by offering a unique party experience.  Our parties are scheduled for 2 hours.  About 1 1/2 hours of that are cooking time.

We can accommodate up to 12 chefs.  We have several options available for beginners to moderate aspiring Chefs.  So let us do the prep work and the clean-up.  You can relax and watch the chefs do all the work while having a great time.  We offer plenty of space for you to sit in the guest waiting area or mingle around the party and take photos.

Birthday FAQ’s

What to you offer for the parents during a party?

You may order party platters for the parents to eat during the party.  They may also taste the children’s menu AFTER all the children have been served.  All leftovers may be taken home by the parents or eaten on the premises.  Leftovers are not a guarantee.  If you would like to feed the parents the same menu as the party, an additional charge of $5 pp is required.

May I decorate for my child’s birthday?

Yes. You can decorate an hour prior to the celebration. You may decorate the front retail area, waiting room and warehouse cooking area. You are responsible to remove the decorations within 30 minutes after the celebration.

May younger children attended the cooking portion of the party?

Younger children may attend the party as long as a parent or guardian provides undivided attention to that child. They may not participate in the preparation, but they may enjoy the food and celebration!

What about a cake?

Yes. You may bring your own cake and ice cream if desired. We will help you slice it and serve it to your guests.

Do we need to bring candles, plates, napkins and silverware for the cake?

Parents need to provide the candles and the lighting of the candles on the cake. We can provide small plates, plain napkins and silverware. Keep in mind… if you have a theme for your party, you are welcome to bring in your own themed plates, napkins, etc.

I was uncertain of the number of children when I booked the party? Can this number be changed at a later date?

Yes. We will be emailing a confirmation after your deposit. We will also confirm a final head count to order the needed ingredients 3 days prior to your party.  We can do this with a phone call or an email.

Most business in this complex work M-F until 4pm. Even during business hours there are plenty of parking. The lot can accommodate approximately 40 + cars on the weekend.

May I bring additional beverages for the children or alcoholic beverages for the adults?

Not unless it is bottled water.  We want to keep the sugar away from the kids until it is time to eat.  We have water and ice in the kitchen for the guests as well as coffee.  Adults can purchase wine or beer at Get U Cooking and we will provide the glassware.

Gratuity is optional.  We do our best to earn a gratuity but it is not mandatory expected, or included in your charge.
