Menu for a fundraiser - help needed!

I see your point about stroling and skewers (no pun intended). I think that it is late afternoon, mostly people in their 30s, casual. most likely napkins and plates.

Menu for a fundraiser - help needed!

A friend of mine is throwing a garden party fundraiser for a local non-profit at her house in Portland, Oregon. The non-profit supports community gardens so its a somewhat vegetable themed "Summer Smorgasboard." She's looking for some help with menu ideas.

Some more criteria:
- Somewhere around 60 people will attend
- The menu needs to be somewhat affordable
- Portable/finger foods will probably be most manageable for folks as they wander around her garden
- There needs to be something for the kids

Some items in the planning
- veggie kabobs
- hummus and veggies

Maybe some sort of dip/spread that can easily be put on bread slices? Maybe chicken skewers?

Dinner for 14 - North Beach or the Mission

I'm organizing a pre-wedding (read: bachelorette) dinner for a good friend. Now that we have a headcount, 14, on to the big decision. Where to go?

Noisy enough so that they won't mind 14 laughing crazy women
Good food. We've got out of towners to impress!

All suggestions welcome.

Bachelorette party for 12 - North Beach?

I'm looking for recommendations for a bachelorette party later this month. Looking for somewhere fun and not wildly expensive. Perhaps in North Beach? Mission?

And no, we're not interested in AsiaSF...
