I'm hoping to get some suggestions for a place for a 40th birthday party for my husband this September. I'm leaning more towards a cocktail party (not a sit down dinner) so any place with an atmosphere appropriate for drinks/hors d'oeuvres. I'm guessing about 40 to 50 people and I would want to have it on a Saturday night. I'm not too sure on location. There may be some people coming from out of town, so I'm considering Boston; and we live in Newton, so anything in and between the two locations would work.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! thanks!
