Sunday Baby Shower in South Jersey?

burbgirl Jun 9, 2011 08:53 AM

I'm planning a baby shower in September for approximately 30 people. The mom-to-be is not a fan of baby showers, so I'm trying to find a fun venue, not the typical Sunday brunch. Maybe a bar/grill or Mexican? Looking to have it somewhere in the vicinity of Cherry Hill/Voorhees/Berlin/Medford .....

Any suggestions?

      The Tortilla Press in Collingswood has a separate dining room that I've seen used for 'private' parties. Their food is more upscale Mexican and they have a weekend brunch menu. http://www.thetortillapress.com/

      Just around the corner, the Pop Shop has a separate party room that's a bit more spacious. Their menu is more diner-style and the place is very kid-friendly. http://www.thepopshopusa.com/

      Both are BYOs, as Collingswood doesn't do liquor licenses.

          Yes indeed, Pop Shop could be a fun choice and definitely not "stuffy" compared to more staid establishments, yet the food is good including some interesting items on the menu. We had a nice lunch there on our way down to Philadelphia. My only concern might be parking downtown for all those guests. I don't remember now exactly where we parked except that we walked to the car past a public library and stopped in to check it out; is there a parking lot nearby the Pop Shop (maybe in back ?) or spaces on the side streets ?

            Collingswood parking can be a challenge. Neither of the restaurants I suggested have their own lots. There's public parking by the PATCO station, as well as on-street parking nearby on both Haddon Ave and the residential side streets.
