My husband (Jim aka Wimpy) and I love bowling, so we'd be fine with that. If we did that, we could do something like each donate something like 5 cents a pin for our games that we bowl to GKTW as a fundraiser. Just a suggestion.

Either of the restaurants mentioned would be fine with us too!

Thanks for the responses and ideas! Keep 'em coming

This is the bowling place I was thinking of. I haven't been to this one, but I've been to the one in Union Square and it's a lot of fun. Just a cool atmosphere, even if you don't want to bowl: http://www.bowlmor.com/timessquare/home.php

I am waiting to hear back from their event planner to see what the details are.

I think any of these ideas sound great. I think something that's more of a lounge atmosphere might offer a better opportunity for everyone to talk instead of being at one or two big tables for a dinner. Of course, we're open to anything. I also love the idea of a Silent Auction! It would be awesome if we could get a Dining Review with John & Kevin or an opportunity to record with the podcast team to bid on.

I PM'd you this link earlier, but I thought I'd share it with everyone. I found another venue in the Theater District that has a private room for up to 60 guests. They offer anything from a buffet, 3 course sit down meals to just a cocktail party with appetizers and the price is only $25 to $35 per person which is really good for Midtown West IMO. Here is the link of anyone is interested in checking out the menu:

We have been there; it's REALLY nice, and much cheaper than bowling. Bowlmor is upwards of $70/person.

Yikes! I'd rather spend less on the event and have the extra money for an auction/to give to GKTW.

Okay, so far I think the place suggested by Mjaclyn is in the lead! I will try to get more details and report back ASAP. Having a true headcount would help A LOT <hint hint> so please let me know your numbers

Hi everybody

Trattoria Trecolori has responded to my request for info. They have availability for 8:00PM in their private room (it will be difficult to get anything before 8pm, due to the pre-theater crowds). The buffet cost would be $30 pp plus 8.875% NY tax and the 20% gratuity (roughly $39 total). This menu does not include any beverages, but does include the following:

INSALATA MISTA
Mixed green salad with red onion, radicchio and julienne carrots
in our honey-herb vinaigrette

ANTIPASTO TRECOLORI
An assortment of Italian cured meats
served with fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil
marinated olives and roasted red peppers

FRITTO MISTO
Our fried medley of calamari, mozzarella en carozza (parmesan-crusted mozzarella), zucchini, and cherry peppers served with marinara sauce

FARFALLE alla PRIMAVERA
Bow-tie pasta with fresh garden vegetables and mushrooms sautéed with roasted garlic and extra virgin olive oil

TORTELLINE alla PANNA MONTATA
Homemade cheese-filled pasta prepared in a parmesan cream sauce with green peas and proscuitto cotto

POLLO SCARPARIELLO
Breast of chicken sautéed with sweet Italian sausage in a delectable rosemary, garlic and wine reduction

SELECT (1) of the following:

Salmon Contadina (Fresh Salmon filet sun dried tomatoes, capers and white wine) OR Veal Trefunghi (Veal scallopine in our Chef’s Marsala wine sauce with porcini, shiitake and portobello mushrooms)

HOMEMADE DESSERT
Choice of (1) of the following homemade desserts served individually to each guest with complimentary coffee and tea

Tiramisu or Ricotta Crème Cheesecake
Served with fresh seasonal berries


This is their private party room:



I need to know if everyone is into this idea, and how many people will be coming. There is a minimum of 25 people required for this set up. Please let me know your thoughts as quickly as possible

I am in. One for sure. Maybe two if my daughter wants to go but I won't know for sure until she gets back from camp on the 17th. One question - will there be other teens there?

No one has really volunteered that info, but I am fairly certain that it will be all adults. One person PM'd me about bringing 2 small kids, but I don't know of any teens.

If anyone would like to chime in on this question, please feel free
