I need some suggestions please!
My dad's 60th birthday is coming up in October and my mom, sister, and I want to plan a surprise party for him.
He's a really laid back guy, who loves to eat and socialize with friends and family. The party would probably consist of 20-30ish people max. We don't want to do anything formal...just a nice, simple gathering with good food, wine, and beer.
I'm currently living in MA and I need some ideas of where we should have this party. We were thinking of going to A Mano in Ridgewood (they have a great space upstairs that would be perfect for a party)...but I only hesitate because I heard it's changed since the last time we went in December (more Americanized, etc.).
There aren't any dietary constrictions really...my family is Italian, so Italian food would be wonderful, but we're open to any kind of food.
Do you all know of a great spot in North Jersey?
Thanks so much for your help!!!!
