My school organization is hosting a banquet for its members. We're looking for a restaurant or banquet hall that can accomodate 60 or more people for dinner and also allow us to have a short program of awards and speeches. Although we're trying to keep the costs down (hopefully less than $15 per person), we would also like this to be a slightly "dressed-up" occasion so burgers or pizza won't cut it.
Do you know of any facilities or have you attended any company dinners at a restaurant that might be able to accompdate us? The school is located in Long Beach, but we're looking for any place between the South Bay and OC.
I don't even know where to begin. Any ideas or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!
