My father turns 70 on June 12th and we find ourselves still dithering about plans. I suggested some sort of bacchanalia and my mother replied "that's not really our demographic" (meaning many of their friends don't really drink). So we're at square one.
My dad loves beer, and food (fairly adventurous) and hates noise and waiting. They live in Manhattan but are former Brooklynites with more friends here than there. I'm thinking a group--maybe 10 of us--have an early dinner somewhere with a garden maybe. Or open to any and all other ideas. Anything come to mind?
