A very good friend is up for a major promotion and we are hoping to celebrate. It will be a last minute scramble to put together a Friday evening guest list, since the invites can't go out until the announcement is made. But we are forecasting about 20-25 people, including the (under 10) children of the guest of honour and maybe a couple of others.
Ideally looking for somewhere fun, not stuffy, that could offer a private room or corner, and that would not require us to give a hard (read charged to my credit card) commitment on the exact number of guests or penalty for having to reschedule completely. Ideally looking from downtown to West End, near the subway is ideal.
