Hi Chowhounds!
My 25th birthday is coming up and I am looking for some FUN recommendations of good restaurants for a big group, that perhaps has something kinda special like live music, or dancing after dinner. Think Tonga Room but not Tonga Room. I was thinking something like Brazilian or something else with cool flavor.

Thoughts:
-fun/lively
-not absurdly expensive
-off the beaten path is great
-ethnic is great
-good for a group of 12-15

Thanks for all your ideas!

      Velvet Cantina in the Mission is fab - but no dancing. Fun Mexican atmosphere and plenty of places to hop to afterwards nearby.

        It's a drive, not Brazilian, but what about Rancho Nicasio?
