Where to host a grad party in Minneapolis?

Hi all,

This is an interesting request I pose. We have a dear friend living in Brooklyn, NY, and graduating from culinary school in November. A significant amount of his friends live in the Midwest so he thought he'd bring the party to Minneapolis and celebrate his graduation here!

Now for the question - where to host the party? Here are his parameters:

1) $1,000 budget (to include reserving a restaurant/pub space, some appetizers and some beer/wine. He doesn't plan on providing food/drink for everyone all night. Probably just a few hours, depending on what we find).

2) Ample space for 40-50-ish people ("ample" meaning we won't all necessarily be sitting and eating. More like up and about mingling and socializing).

3) No chains, preferably something with a bit of local flare.

4) Alcohol. Food, yes, but especially alcohol. We're drinkers. I shan't be bashful about this requirement.

Ideas I have so far:
Stella's Seafood Cafe
Town Hall Brewery

Quite a wide variety of ideas, I know, but I'm keeping all my options open!

Recommend away, Chowhounders!
