Graduation Dinner Recommendation Needed

My family is convening in Portland this weekend for a graduation and we could use a recommendation for dinner on Saturday night. We will be a party of 5-6 adults and 1 very active toddler; the group includes one vegetarian and one gluten-free eater. Location is key (preferably close to the Residence Inn Downtown/RiverPlace - near the Marquam Bridge - the graduation is at OCAC on the far SW side). We need a place that can pace things for an impatient toddler (1.5 max). But we'd like to have some good food. Price point is probably not more than $40 per person. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Early Dinner Near Phoenix Theater in Union Square area (Mason and Geary)

We are going to a 7:00 show next Thursday at the Phoenix Theater (Mason between Geary and Post). Any recommendations for a pre-show dinner nearby or between Powell St BART station and theater? Preference is inexpensive. ($50-60 total tab for two; this is a last minute addition to the holiday season and we've already done our splurging). We're open on type of food but don't want it to be too divey. Thanks.

Christmas Ham Source in East Bay

Any recommendations on where to find a nice ham for Christmas dinner? We'll probably need only a half ham (feeding about 8 people). I'd prefer hormone free, antibiotic free, etc. Oakland/Berkeley area best, but wiling to take a drive.

where to buy mutton in the east bay or greater bay area

Try Nature's Bounty ranch in Vacaville.
