restaurant gift certificate for incoming Tulane student

Very nice guy, but they don't do gift certificates by mail ;( I'd have to send them a check, wait for it to clear and then they'd send me the certificate and that would take too long....

restaurant gift certificate for incoming Tulane student

I'm hoping to just call and have them send me some sort of gift certificate that I can stick in the card. (I'm in the DC area)

Thank you all for your help!

I'd like to give a gift certificate to a Tulane area restaurant as a graduation gift. Just something small, but thoughtful? A place frequented by students -- obviously informal. I'm grateful for any recommendations.

bar/bat mitzvah menu

I really think I want to do a sit down dinner for the adults, buffet for the kids. I think I'll do an Italian or Asian theme for the kids (my son's favorites), but I'm open for the adults. I like the idea of looking at some local restaurant for ideas and LOVE the idea of Moroccan savory pastries, maybe even a Moroccan themed dinner? I can't do fish (my mother won't eat fish, which is a problem). I don't do shrimp or lobster, so that won't be a problem either. I'll look through Kosher for Design.

Any other suggestions are WELCOME. THANK YOU!

bar/bat mitzvah menu

80 adults (approx), very few seniors, fairly sophisticated adults (pasta and pizza bar for the kids). I like (and appreciate your ideas) ANYTHING but "chicken served on a bed of cauliflower" with roasted root vegetables (which is what I was given from a caterer today!)

THANK YOU!

bar/bat mitzvah menu

Does anyone have any suggestions for a bar/bat mitzvah menu (for the adults) they think may be noteworthy? We live in a major metropolitan area and all of the caterers suggestions seem boring and kind of "been there, done that". (One caterer even suggested a white fish with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.) I'd like something a bit more "modern". I appreciate any suggestions or thoughts.

Thank you.
