HELP! Foodie in new of ideas for 30th Bday bash!

Hi Fellow Foodies!
OK, my wife is turning 30 in a month and I am having about 35 people over to celebrate. I am an experienced cook but usually only cook intricate meals for no more than 8 people. Large parties are not my expertise but I know the guests will be expecting something above the norm since I am hosting the event. Good news is I run a food distribution company so I can get just about anything at distributor cost. I of course do not want to do burgers and hot dogs and I do not want to be stuck cooking the entire evening. The party will be all adults and I have some foodie friends that could help me with prep. Any and all help/ideas is appreciated! thanks!

Suckling Pig

I am cooking a suckling pig today and was wondering if anyone out their has any tried and true methods for cooking it in the oven and finishing it on the grill. I was originally going to do the entire pig on a spit but it is not fitting so........ Thanks

Great Steaks in the Philly Burbs?

Sullivans and Del Friscos are both owned by Coulter Enterprise aka Lone Star Steakhouse.

I know you are looking for outside of the city but venture into the city and go to Davios, they use Brandt beef and it is some of the best steak around!

Suckling Pig

I am roasting a suckling pig for S-Bowl. It is marinating in a traditional Cuban marinade right now.

Suggestions for side dishes?
