Ideas for our company holiday party?

Postby zinnia » Thu Nov 08, 2007 1:27 pm

I'm planning my company holiday party this year and need help picking a restaurant or a venue! Any ideas would be appreciated. Here are the details:

- up to 50 people (probably 40 will attent)
- the owner likes to do a quick speech so we need a semi-private room
- mix of blue and white color staff
- spouses and partners are invited
- central location is best
- Nice place but not stuffy
- bar at venue or nearby so the party can continue

Thanks!

Biaggi's has a room for private functions and a service bar in the main dining area...

Smurfs?

But seriously.

I think Marigold Kitchen does private parties as long as they are in the evening. I think they can accommodate around 50 or 60 people. They have a little bar, too.

Rent a bunch of rooms and a conference room at a Hotel and have "Key Card" party.

Not centrally located, but the Great Dane branch in Fitchburg has a large room that might accomodate your party.

Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh. I love the Smurf's! That's supposed to be "collar" not "color".
