40-something's birthday party

Augusta Jun 30, 2009 11:09 AM

I’m throwing myself a birthday party this summer but need some assistance with finding the right restaurant.
I’m looking for a place that would be kid friendly but still have great food and atmosphere. There would be about 10 adults and 7 kids (ages range from 4yo-12yo), and I'd like to stick to a maximum of $30 per person incl. drinks.

Some ideas I had were Gus’s BBQ, Rhadika’s Indian food, or maybe Saladang. (I’m up to pretty much any kind of cuisine).
Though I prefer the Pasadena/Arcadia/Monrovia area, I’m open to suggestions between SG Valley and North OC.

Thank you for any help!

    How about a Chinese banquet-style dinner at say a place like Lunasia, 888, or Ocean Star?

    You could banquet menu for 10/table easily at $150-200 and come comfortably within your budget. With 17 people total, you could book 2 tables and even get a private room and then BYOB to cover the drinks.

      OK, how about this. Adults go to 3 Drunken Goats and let the 12 year old take the kids across the street to Zekes BBQ. By the way, what is an extra goat one way or another?

        Did they add yet another inebriated goat? (I always found 3 goats 3 sheets to the wind were enough!)... ;-D>

          Either 3 or 4, there would be too many drunken goats to be "kid friendly" :-)
