I would like to throw a farewell party this weekend. I'm looking for a venue where 30-40 ppl can hang out on a Saturday night and get drinks that won't break the bank. Due to the number of ppl, I think I ought to avoid any super-hip place that would get really crowded and where ppl might be turned away and err on the side of a good ol' watering hole. Preference is for the west side. I figure ppl will stop in, hang out for a bit and then head out as this would be pretty casual.
Your suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks.
