I was asked by a venue in town to come in and partner with them to lend my expertise & throw an entertainment event. We met and discussed arrangements, set forth & agreed upon terms. we would split the door monies 50/50 & the bar monies 50/50. as well we would also split all upfront cost (flyers, posters, advertising, marketing, permits, insurance,security, talent,etc) The venue approved the advertising artwork, (3 witnesses were present during this meeting)
We secured liquor permit, insurance, security, caterer, paid for flyers & posters, supplied business license and tax ID # everything we needed to hold such an event.
2 days prior to the event the venue backs out and cancels. small claims case has been set
