Looking for a fun, laid back locale for a 50th birthday party. About 75 people - thinking gastro pub/ craft beer concept. For food would like to do heavy duty apps but not your typical wings or nachos. Probably run late afternoon into early evening on a summer saturday. Outdoor options during the fete would be great. Would want some level of privacy along with opportunity for a video - music would be fine, but not absolutely necessary.
Thinking of scoping out Publick House in Brookline, Lord Hobo in Cambridge and Atwood Tavern in Cambridge as well. Possibly the Cambridge Brewing Company too. I'm not sure if Boston Beer Works is too college oriented/ divey?
Any suggestions much appreciated.
