PDX thoughts on what to do for conference dinner/cocktails?

drdawn | Jan 8, 2006 02:26 PM

We'll have 250 ish conference attendees--one night we'll need a cocktail party venue, and the other night dinner. Obviously not everyone will attend these things, but we're in the market for places to basically take over for the evening(s).

It's a crowd that likes to think of themselves as trendy, tho we're mostly middle aged :). Well, early middle aged. Last year in seattle we took over a bar/resto that served South Asian food. They put together a buffet for us, and we did tickets for drinks. That seemed to work out well.

My impression is that the budget will allow for good quality places, but I don't know for sure how much it is. Obscenely spendy is probably best avoided.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
