30th Birthday Party - Suggestions?

  • d

Hey hounds! I'm planning a party for a friend who's turning 30 this weekend, and we want to take her out to dinner this Thursday. There will be 6 or 7 of us.

Looking for:
- fairly inexpensive (under $30/person)
- casual and unpretentious place, more towards the cozy/warm side
- leaning towards Mexican/Spanish/Southwestern-ish (b-day girl is a native Texan)
- chow-worthy food!

I was thinking the South End (Masa, Claremont Cafe ... ?) for close proximity to pre/after dinner drinks and such, but this is by no means mandatory. Any ideas?

(Bar recommendations would be appreciated as well.)

  1. A few of us have been to Masa recently and really like it. Definitely a posibility. I'd also recommend the Green St. Grill which I just posted about where no entree is over $18 and the two desserts are $5, they've got interesting drinks and beers plus a fun crowd, and there are a few other places in the area if you want to get drinks later (Central Kitchen, Enormous Room, Good Life, Middle East) altho the GSG bar is fairly happening.

      Does Green Street Grille take reservations? I am going out to celebrate my birthday this weekend too and thought this might be a good option...but we would probably want reservations. Thanks.

        They do, and we only had 4 people.

    2. Bristol Lounge at The Four Seasons is a neat "grownup" bar scene- something that might be fun for a milestone b-day. They make a mean martini (not cheap!)
