I would love to get your thoughts on options for a beach party for probably up to 80 adults and 80 kids. In the past, it's been a mishmosh potluck, but is likely to turn into a "kick in some cash" for food party. There are firepits for cooking, reheating, or finishing par-cooked foods. And doing that, I think, is the funnest part of the party (v. taco cart, pizza or something like that.)
Dogs and smores, for sure. But it would be nice to have more meats and some nice sides for the adults. The drop off BBQ places I've looked at so far (per Chowhound recs) are Big Mistas, Park's Finest and Tres Gauchos (Argentinian). We wanted to keep costs to about $7 pp, so I am willing to do more leg work if required, but I can't imagine what I could do for that number of people other than preparing marinades or sauces. Maybe there's a place that makes good kabobs en masse?
I realize this is pretty open ended, but any other ideas are appreciated.
Thanks so much.
