Stuck...50 person party, $35 a head tops: WHERE?

thanks everyone for the suggestions!! i'm trying to stay away from arthur avenue. I like the zanaro's idea, and i'm still looking around. i'm going to just start calling and stop being afraid of being laughed at for my budget :)

Trying to have it in Bronx/Westchester/Northern NJ area.

Was originally aiming for cocktail/tapas type party, but now just trying to get alternate ideas. Though I still love my original idea. Bar/Restaurants are good as long as they are in decent shape haha.

Would love to include at least beer/wine in that price.

Thanks hounds =)

outdoor seating/good margaritas in westchester county?

thanks marm! that is an option, though it is pretty far for us. lower westchester (white plains and below might be better)

Peniche in White Plains?

Hi everyone! I'm thinking about having a 10-15 person birthday celebration at Peniche, I plan on visiting later to check it out, but just wondering if anyone has been there. I'm interested in how the food was, obviously and the atmosphere. Also, is there a separate lounge there, or a lounge nearby for drinks?

Thank you so much!

bday ideas in NYC..desperate need of help!

Ok I'm turning 24 in about 2 weeks (11/16). I'm really a fairly boring person in need of some fun. I had a crappy past few birthdays and want one that people will say "i had so much fun at your birthday!"

So to accomplish this I need the following:

-a decent restaurant to accommodate a noisy group of about 15 people (i love sushi, and paninis aaaand gourmet pizza type places)
-a place to have drinks afterwards (no live bands please unless it's acoustic/indie! i was a sound tech on the UES at a metal club for a few years and can't deal with it anymore) where i can have fun with my friends. jukeboxes are awesome!
-a hotel to crash at. preferably with suites that don't mind/would turn a blind eye to 5-6 people in a room.

I know. I'm asking for too much, but surely you could help make my birthday awesome! and you could even come hang out if you want!

Thank in advance!

Help with red, sweet sherry name

Last week I went to Pipa and had a great sherry that I can't find the name of. All I know is that it's red, sweet, and from Argentina. Vague, yes, but I'm open to other suggestions that match the criteria =)

Thanks in advance!

i was thinking riesling, but i still haven't found one that i like so i don't feel confident enough in my riesling experience. thank you for your reply! i like the term "wine hick" i feel like that! hah

i think i'll end up going for a moscato, maybe an intro red wine (pinot noir maybe?) and moet's white star for the champagne and a rabbit corkscrew. sound good?

i'm probably going to include a champagne in the basket as well, moscato sounds good based on what i'm reading throughout the net though. i've never tried it, i'll have to stop by the shop tomorrow. thanks!

I like to create wine baskets for engagements, problem is I'm stuck. My two friends drink beringer white zinfandel, and I want to get something that they might like, but a little more...complex? expensive even?

So what are some suggestions for a wine that they may enjoy?

Thanks in advance =)

just started working in the area. the pizza is hit or miss, the spanish food i've tried was bland and mcdonald's is starting to look good (scary!). i refuse to believe there isn't a good lunch spot nearby!!
