Restaurant/Catering for a Motown themed party?

evex3 | Jul 10, 2009 11:11 AM

I'm hosting a Motown themed 35th birthday party+baby shower (co-ed) for a friend in September, 1-4pm. I'm looking for food theme ideas & recommendations of (economical) places from which to order said thematically relevant food?

since the party falls btwn lunch & dinner, i'd guess folks wont be totally ravenous, but my experience is that folks are willing to eat good food 24 hrs a day...I'm expecting we'll have about 40-50 people.

i was thinking some sort of punny drinks, like "Motown Mojitos". The cake will probably look like a concert poster. For food, is Soul Food the best option? if so, any experience bringing in party platters/family size from Coast, Poppa B's or Lennys? i dont even know if you can order those there. Others?

I'm really interested in other ideas, too, as i havent found much inspiration online (beyond MJ, that is).

Thanks.
