I am planning an alumni event for a Florida college to take place in October. We expect around 50 people. The budget is $50 per person. Not looking for a plated dinner, but rather a scenario that allows for mingling and movement. We want a place that has some character that people are willing to drive to. In the past they have done summer clam bakes. We may need a private space conducive to a speech being delivered.
I am thinking some sort of farm environment that would utilize local foods like Gibbet Hill Grill in Groton. Looking for other ideas.
