our dear friends are leaving us (los angeles) to take a job at yale new haven hospital- we want to get them the above item as a going away gift- for a party TOMMORROW night!- they are a great youngish couple (late 30's0 its all about the point of reference, right?) with 3 kids- 9, 7 and 2- he: surgeon, she: mba turned stay at home mom-something family freindly- a great cafe or diner?- or just fun and indulgent- a cool bakery- cupcake or ice cream shop?
any ideas along those lines that i can deal with online or by phone?
many thanks east coast chowhounders!!
