The trick is that it cannot be a hotel ballroom or at the convention center (rooftops are okay, but nothing at the Marriott or Loews), cannot be a chain restaurant, and must be within walking distance (around 1/2 mile max) from the Marriott.
Restaurant or bar buyouts tend to work well, but other interesting venues that I can bring in a caterer are also great. Really looking for a place that you would want to go to, even if you weren't just in the area for a convention.
Was interested in The Franklin, even though it's on the far side of my walking-distance limit, until I saw that they can only accommodate 60.
Locals, what would you suggest?
