As humans, we have an innate need to connect with one another and spend time with our people. We’re social creatures who seek community and love. It’s why we join book clubs, plan happy hours, call our friends with good news and celebrate life’s milestones together. We need each other.

The last several months have been challenging for us all on many fronts. We’ve adjusted to new routines and watched our communities and economies struggle, and that’s weighed heavily on our hearts. When we’ve needed each other most, we’ve had to keep our distance to protect ourselves and our neighbors.

Thankfully, we’re finding new ways to stay connected and spend time together. Times have changed, but the celebrations haven’t stopped. With social distancing, masks and other important measures in place to keep our community safe, micro-events have become a popular way to get together. Whether you’re planning an intimate outdoor ceremony or a backyard movie night with friends, Hamby Catering is here to add some flavor to your festivities.

Our team has curated new menus and à la carte options made specially for groups of 10-50. Choose from one of our three tasty meal options below! Each option includes disposable dishes and utensils.

Make Hamby Catering part of your small-sized celebration! To place an order for your gathering, simply email us at info@hambycatering.com and let us know you’d like Hamby to cater your next micro-event. We kindly request seven days advance notice.

Please note that our micro-events are all fully catered and will include an additional staffing cost, 15% production fee and applicable taxes. We recommend 1-2 staff members ($275/staff member) per event, especially for buffet-style service to limit contact and utensil sharing. Pricing for staff member(s) and bartender(s) is for 3-hour events.
