Elegant or funky place for bridal shower: Tea or light lunch?

Hello:

I am tasked with hosting a bridal shower for my sister in June, I am guessing for about 30 women. Ideally I would love to find a small, fun or lovely restaurant that has personality and will let us rent it for a few hours or rent a private room there. Of course, I am hoping not to break the bank....but realize I may not be able to have it all! She lives near Valley Forge, so Western burbs or the city would be best.

I haven't lived in Phildelphia since 1993, so I am a blank slate. Ideas?

Many thanks!

Spontaneous date nite spot in Manhattan/Bklyn?

Sorry, belatedly realized I should have done somthing separate on Brooklyn board. Aplogies to all!

Really, we are open to ANYTHING. We used to go out all the time pre-kids and now don't even have a want-to-try-it list. I guess I'd say nothing on the order of Per Se, something lively and new where we we have a chance of getting in without a two-hour wait. Past favorites have been Le Gigot, Blue Ribbon, Tabla. Thanks for any ideas.

We're looking for a newish, small place to try in Manhattan or Brooklyn for a rare date night tonight. Ideas? We love all cuisines. Thanks!

Seeking article: Snacks inspired by cocktails

So realized my problem in losing it in the first place...recipe is in the SUBSCRIPTION edition only. Not on newsstands apparently.

Seeking article: Snacks inspired by cocktails

This is a minor thing but somewhere in the past week I read a story about snacks inspired or that go-with individual cocktails. There as a picture of a martini in a Moroccan tea glass and I think (hope!) some kind of spicy chickpea recipe. CANNOT figure out where I saw it. Help anyone? Thanks!
