kiddie birthday spot?

my sons will be 2 at the end of this month and i'm having the toughest time figuring out a spot for their party.

i'd love to find a place that is casual yet really delicious, and has a room we can use that will accommodate about 25 adults + 4 toddlers. a separate room is key so that the kids can be free to bop around and i don't have to be concerned with watching their every move the entire time.

not really interested in kid-specific places, as they don't really seem to make sense unless you have a lot of kids attending the party.

i live in the maple glen area and would ideally like to keep it as close as possible... but i am open to suggestions, so long as they're not in center city or the western burbs!

would appreciate any and all ideas, thanks so much!

  1. We had my daughters christening at From the Boot in Ambler, great food plus a private downstairs room for crazy toddlers (my daughter is 16 mos. so I completely understand toddler insanity!). Also Tamarindos will host private parties during the daytime and I beleive may even close the restaurant if its really off hours like mid afternoon (I looked into having a baby shower there a few years back). It has fun decorations and you could even do a cute Mexican theme (pinatas, etc.).

    Good luck and have fun :)
