I'm looking for a place for no more than 50 people to have cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres, with room for dancing. I'm starting the search early (event is next year, probably in the summer) Willing to look into places from Ashland to Petersburg and in-between.
The Columbian center in Henrico county used to do a wonderful job, but it looks like they are no longer open for business. I'd prefer a place that offered package deals to cut out the hassle of selecting a venue and then outsourcing the caterer and other items.
I did a web search but mostly found advertising sites that offered no real insight into the locations. Would love to hear from anyone who's held an event in the area and were happy with their supplier. I'd also appreciate any warnings about companies to avoid.
