Experience with renting a tent?
I'm thinking of having an evening mardi gras party at my home in February. I live in southern California near the beach, so it's cold, but not freezing. I have a wall of sliding glass doors that open on to the patio, and I'm thinking of renting a 3-sided tent (if there is such a thing) so that people can use the patio. The alternative would be to rent a bunch of heaters, but I'm out of luck if it rains. It will be a group that's large enough to fill my house, and I need the extra room.
I've never used a tent before - any advice?
