Birmingham Chowhounds, I need your help.
My husband wil be celebrating his 40th birthday this year, and I'm looking for a place to have his party. What I have in mind is a restaurant where they have a meeting room/banquet room where we can be a bit separated from the main dining area. I need seating for up to 25-35 people.
I'm planning to show a video during the dinner, and we are bringing our own cake. So, I'd like to have a place either where we can display the video via a projector on the wall, or plug in a DVD player into a TV mounted on a wall.
Guests will be buying their own dinner/drinks (please do not lecture me on how tacky this is - he's back in college, so money is tight for us.) As for type of food - he likes everything (except Indian), especially seafood, sushi, and a good hamburger. Price range - moderate.
I'm open to suggestions from as far South as Columbiana and as far north as Trussville/Argo/Springville. Would prefer to remain off of I-65 north, if possible. And, some of the folks invited do not drive on the highway.. so this needs to be somewhat easy for them to drive to.
Thanks for the help!
