Dim sum for large group (Vancouver/Richmond)

Thanks fmed, the private room at Northern Delicacies sounds appealing, although the ambiance of dim sum will be lost . . .
Sorry to have posted yet another dim sum topic, I always go to dim sum with someone who speaks cantonese, so the idea of leading a large group to dim sum where I will be considered the 'expert' is a little daunting. Lansdowne is very close to where many of the guests are staying, so I may try gingeri if they take reservations. . .

Dim sum for large group (Vancouver/Richmond)

I'm thinking of holding my day after wedding brunch at a dim sum restaurant in Richmond or Chinatown, on a Monday around noon. We expect 15-25 people, most from out of town (non-dim-summers), and it's unlikely we'll have someone with us who speaks cantonese. Suggestions? I was thinking a la carte might be best because then I can order for the group. I'd like to keep the price down (broke from the wedding), but would like good quality food.

Best Tres Leches cake in Austin

I'm looking to buy a cake to feed about 10-15 people for a barbecue this weekend. I know Habana and Chez Zee have good cakes as a dessert option, but am looking for a bakery or something similar that allows me to buy a whole cake. I had one a couple of years ago that was supposedly the best in Austin, from a bakery on the east side, but can't remember the name . . .
Thanks for your help :)
