Help me celebrate my 50th in good taste!

Since my family are not exceptional party planners like I am, I am thinking I am going to have to make my own birthday special. Sadly it is on a Monday in late October. I am looking at planning a (Sunday/Monday) 12 course 2 day progressive dining event with all my favorite dishes over two days- With a night at a nice hotel (taking suggestions for that too) and friends will be invited to pick a venue/dish and join me on the journey for a dish that they like. Anyway. I am looking for the best in D for the following:

stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes, onion rings, wood fired pizza (mushroom-cheese-onion/classic type),
lobster (could be a dish), scallops, shrimp (scampi?), pasta (carbonara?)
smoked brisket could sub for a seafood here.
cheesecake, creme brulee, chocolate mousse or an amazing peanut butter and chocolate dessert, open to a suggestion for #12

not to worry, my spouse and I will probably share a good number of these. ahd it will be well paced.

Tell me your recommended venue......I have a few suggestions already. I just haven't been around enough to know.
