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?

Requirements:
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...
