MSP - Inexpensive holiday dinner

debbie421 Nov 16, 2009 10:50 AM

Hi all,

I am taking 10-15 women in their early 20’s to a holiday dinner on Sunday, 12/20. None of us drink alcohol. Since I’m sponsoring this meal, I’d like to keep costs low (somewhere around $20/person). It does not have to be a traditional meal; last year we did this at Peninsula. I look forward to your suggestions!

    Forgot to say it needs to be in Minneapolis proper.

      The food at Brasa is quite good and in that price range. Atmosphere is not special, but not bad either.

      Barrio is fun with good food in that price range.

        I like the food at Brasa, but I'd prefer somewhere I can get a reservation so they can prepare for the big party. Forgot to mention that too!

        Pagoda has private rooms and could be fun and affordable for a group. I don't recall how many people the rooms hold, though, so you may have to check on that.

          jfood does not remeber the price but it could be ~$25 but there was a thingy on the tablke at Masa last night that they are serving T-day dinner.
