My parents will be turning 80 soon, so we are planning on a joint Saturday evening party for about 30 people in February over President's Day weekend. The honorees live on the Westside, so I looked through the board archives and came up with Napa Valley Grille and the Westside Tavern.
The one fly in the ointment is that the group will include 18 month old twins and a 9 year old boy. My parents would feel more comfortable if we could be in a location that had a little space so that the younger ones had a little lebensraum, just some space for them to stretch out, toddle around, and have some toys away from busy waitstaff.
Does anyone have suggestions for a location that might fit the bill, either on the Westside or in the east San Fernando Valley (Sherman Oaks/Encino/Studio City)? We have a tentative budget of $3k though we can go higher. Another option would be to find a place where we can rent a room and have an outside caterer come in, though this might be prohibitively expensive on a holiday weekend. Still, any suggestions for a location along those lines would also be very welcome.
Handicapped accessibility is a must. We also need vegetarian options.
Thanks for any ideas.
