Bringing in your own food: Venues that allow in it in SE Wisconsin

Is there any nice places that let you bring in your own caterer?  We are looking for a rental fee in the hall of under 1000. 
Also does anyone know of any place that (selft catered or not) is under 5000.  We are running into heistent parents and it would be wonderful to have a place that we can pay for on our own.

    Totally check out the Masonic Center and Dekoven Center in Racine.  They are beautiful and allow all external vendors.

    South Shore Pavillion, as above. 
    There are several sites in MKE with venue rental rates around $1400...Botanical Gardens, Miller Room, Harbor Lights Room etc.  All have a single caterer or a list of perferred caterers.  I don't know what the food minimums are.

    Dousman Community Center allows you to bring in your own caterers.  You can do basically anything you want... just have to organize it all yourself.  And the rental fee is $400.

    It's sort of out of the beat and path but it's worth the cost savings!

    Tripoli Shrine in Milwaukee allows outside caterers.  I don't know what rental fee is like, however I do know that the place is huge and has a large capacity.

    Horticultural Hall in Lake Geneva.  They have a professional kitchen and allow you to bring in your own food and alcohol. Rental fee is a little over $1K.

    Hi,
    I looked at this place early today.
    FYI: The Tripoli Shrine center does not allow you to bring in your own caterer. You will have to use there in house cater servuce.The room rental rate is $1500.00. They dont have a food or beverage minimum either.
    Hope this helps
