Business Journal finds that some 80 events a year are held there for fees of $250-$300 per person. The front-page anecdote is about a company, Barrington Associates, that paid $150,000 to throw an anniversary party around the grotto. "It's a party rental hall," homeowner association leader Sandy Brown complains.
