hi, a few of my friends and i are planning to have a grad party in June with about 30 to 40 guests, we're looking at getting a private room at a restaurant downtown which can accomodate such a large group...any suggestions? also does anyone have an idea of pricing and how payment works (i.e. if people are showing up and paying for their own meals, is the entire deposit returned?) i've seen some places that ask for a deposit of $1000 or so, but does this mean that the total bill has to come up to $1000?
any suggestions of places with a nice ambience for a fairly casual event, in a reasonable price range would be appreciated!
