i found the victory arts center online and was so thrilled to see the pics. its right by my college, coudl hold both my reception and ceremony for my wedding, and when i went to visit it was just perfect. i had wanted an older building that was special, and it was! i was very excited. it was also the very first place i lookeda t when planning my wedding, and i was sure it was the one. i was able to look around without anyone bothering me or having to make an appt. it is an apt building too, so it was open during the day, and i assume night too. so i find the managing office to get pricing info, etc. the person in the office was a sub because the manager was on vacation. no problem, but she didnt have any info on renting the ballroom. i was dissapointed, but it was ok, i just emailed the manager again, telling her i had visited and was sure i wanted to book. then several days later i got an email from the manager, having returned from her vacation. she said that they were no longer taking reservations because the managers of the building were doing some restructuring and had put reservations on hold. i tried back about 4 times over the next few weeks and months, still the same answer with NO extra information. no time line, no guesses, couldnt even tell me if they would ever be booking ever again, so i gave up. rented another place...but i thought the whole thing was weird because when i had been in the ballroom there were actually a few things left over from the night before's party. and when i went again that weekend with my fiance, same thing, so i know there were still events going on. of course, maybe they had been booked in advance. i also noticed in the restrooms, there were soem building materials around and some work wasnt finished. my mother thought perhaps they had run out of funds to pay for the work so it had been halted, it jsut seemed fishy. so be warned, they are in a weird situation.... good luck if you try to book there.
