We are planning a family banquet for about 20 people the evening before a memorial., in mid-January Ideal location would be Oakland, on Piedmont or Lakeshore/Grand Ave. but we could go to Berkeley or downtown if the place is special enough. We want to be able to entertain each other with songs, poems and toasts etc. and linger long after the meal. We can splurge a little on this one, but don't want to break the bank. Does anyone have a suggestion or two? The date is drawing near so we need a quick answer! Many thanks.
