Going Away Party

woodyfay Mar 30, 2011 01:34 PM

I want to give a going away party to a soon to be graduate student moving far away to study. Want a space with good food and a youngish, more or less, casual atmosphere. Any suggestions?

    Budget per person? How many people? What part of the city?

      Really do not know going rates. Maybe, around 50/60 (could be Sunday lunch or brunch). Anywhere in Manhattan. I would also consider Westchester.

        For Westchester you have to post on another board.

        Without some sense of budget (including tax,tip, beverages), cuisine, number of people, area....it's very hard to offer suggestions. It's too broad a request.

        If you're talking about a party for 60 people....you probably need some kind of catering situation. But you'll need to know what you want to spend...
