I am planning on getting married in a year and am looking for a private dining room for ~80 guests, preferably with enough room for some dancing. I've read some of the past threads, but they seem focused on SF or much bigger groups. I will be getting married in Berkeley and most of my guests will be from out of town, so I *really* don't want to make them drive far or across the bridge. Another issue is that one of the relatives owns a stake in a winery and another a brewery, so we are looking for a place with very low corkage. I'm not a big fan of tradition wedding reception menus (shark fin soup, etc.) but I want delicious non-Americanized Chinese food. Anyone have experience with restaurants that are accommodating regarding the menu?
I live in Berkeley and I want to watch the UNC-NCSt game Sat. It's on ESPN, which is normally not difficult, but this game is at noon on the east coast, which means it's at 9am here. Is there any breakfast/brunch place in Berkeley that has a tv? I have a scooter, no car, so it's got to be close by or near public transit. TIA!
