    Guess they forgot to tell Dwight Yoakam's mom that there is only three words in the English language that start with dw.

    Some feedback please

    Okay folks, I'm looking for a little feedback. But first a few details. The restaurant has quite a few possibilities when selecting dinner. They boil down to two categories. The first is each guest can select from a number of different entrees all priced the same. The second is choosing from a few different buffets.

    I guess I've made something of an executive decision to go with one of the buffets. The advantage here will be time. With an anticipated group of 40, for the servers to take 40 orders, the cooks to cook them and finally for the servers to bring them out, this I'm sure would take up a lot of time. With the buffet, it comes out and the only time it takes from there is for everyone to get through the serving line.

    Now having said that, the main entree will be a big meal. So for appetizers, I was thinking of just chips and salsa. The appetizers can get pricy and not everyone likes guacamole or queso, but nearly everybody likes chips and salsa.

    So what do I want feedback on?

    Alcohol: I'm pretty sure I know where Buff Buster stands on this one. :) But not so much on others. In putting this together, one of the options I'm looking at are tickets for a limited number of drinks that include your choice of bottled beer, house margaritas and wine. It would be 2 tickets per attendee, one drink per ticket.

    Dessert: There is a dessert option too, and they do look tasty. However, it adds $6 per person to the bill (plus tax and 20% gratuity). Now I don't know about you, but even with a healthy appetite when I get done with chips/salsa and a big Mexican dinner, while dessert looks good I am usually done. So I'm leaning towards not including this in the dinner.

    So please give me your thoughts on these two items within the next few days as I'd like to get these plans finished up. Please keep in mind that I've had some very generous sponsor money made available for the dinner. With that money to help cover the cost of the event, the estimated amount I expect that each of you will need is $25 or less. This will cover dinner, tax and gratuity. On the subject of gratuity, for large groups, the restaurant adds a 20% gratuity to the bill on food/drink.

    Phil,

    First of all... Many thanks for your leg work! I am with you. Chips, Salsa, buffet, drink tickets... No dessert. If people want more drinks, I'm sure a server or cash bar will not be more than 10 feet in any direction.

    Thank you again!

    Brad

    My pleasure Brad. Yup, that's correct. If two drinks doesn't get it done for you, the servers will be there to take your order, the bill will obviously be on you for that though.

    Count me in if the limit hasn't been reached. Skip the dessert and add another drink ticket.

    Same here I have already made my reservations for Hampton Inn about a block or so away. and put my table next to Buff-Buster's He may need my help drinking beer. Now as far as the buffet thats sounds great but see if they are willing to add dessert to the buffett nothing fansy just a sample of what they have to offer like you after I've stuffed my face I don't even want dessert. Just another beer to wash it down with. Sounds like we have a party.
