I (i.e. not the boss) have to arrange for a office x-mas party consisting of 25 lively people. Somewhere fun, not to stuffy/pricey (upto 40$ excluding drinks)and exotic is always welcome. Chinese, Mexican, Japanese and Indian is out of the equation (Asian fusion is still in). So please pour in the suggestions and let me know if you know of any places lively, yet not to noisy and classy at the same time (to satisfy the gourmets in the group).
