dinner before concert near HP Pavilion [San Jose]

Looking for a good place to grab a meal before a concert at the HP Pavilion. We'd like to walk from the restaurant to the concert. We eat any type of food but would also prefer a place you can get a good glass of wine or a cocktail. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

Help-need recs on dinner in Old Town/River North

Need help from Chicago hounds on the following:
1. restaurant rec in Old Town w/ good food and not too loud (but not too fuddy-duddy either) so three old friends can catch up
2. restaurant rec in Old Town/River North for 8 college friends celebrating a big bday. We need a place that's moderately priced w/ good food and lively atmosphere but where we can hear each other talk (no pizza, please)
3. any fun places in Old Town/River North for friends to go in and have a glass of wine/beer/cocktail?
We'd prefer places not filled w/ 20 somethings.

Many thanks.

hors d'oeuvres trays on the Peninsula

Searched and couldn't find what I'm looking for so need recommendations for a caterer that would drop off trays of interesting hors d'oeuvres for a happy hour on the Peninsula. I can also pick up the trays at a gourmet grocery store. Heard about Bi-Rite Market in the city but too far for me. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you.

Bi-Rite Market

not to be missed restaurants in Paris?

Haven't been to Paris since 2001 and wanted foodies' help in selecting restaurants for an upcoming visit. We have been to Michel Rostang, Taillevant, etc., etc. What are the newest? Are there any eclectic ones to try? Price is not a concern but also don't want to eat in fancy, 10 course meal restaurants every night. Ethnic suggestions are welcome, too. Many, many thanks for your recommendations.

50th bday party for 70 on UWS or Midtown

Looking for a place to hold my husband's bday party (cocktail party instead of a sit-down dinner), preferably on the UWS or mid-town this November. Looking for good food (on the upscale side) and fun place. Willing to pay up to $150 per person and am willing to pay for the whole restaurant for the right place. Used to live in NYC but now live in California so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
