Hey, all. I could use some pointers for a venue for a 40th birthday dinner. My budget is up to $1000, and I was originally thinking that we'd have 20 adults and do something like a tapas buffet at Solera. However, it now looks like I'll have to plan for 30-40 people, a mixture of adults and young kids, so I need something a little more downscale and youth-friendly.
The dinner would be on a Sunday night. Anywhere in the metro area is fine. Budget stays at $1000. A private room would be best. Type of cuisine doesn't matter (except for one -- the birthday girl does not like Indian food), but I'd prefer a buffet of some kind in a private room, possibly with a cash bar or BYO. Any suggestions?
