There is no bidding for events here.

There's a general knowledge of what it is reasonable to spend for 
certain types of events and of how much money they will make. So the 
idea is to make a little money if possible to cover those times when 
an event loses money.

Feasts are not supposed to cost more than $600 (that's for food plus 
cooking supplies and kitchen clean-up supplies), but can if they're 
very popular - this is up to the feast cook. Hall rental and clean up 
is separate and up to the autocrat.
