What was my idea? The big group dinner? Yeah, that was me lol. Should we go ahead and make the reservation? Looks like we have about 22 people. Maybe we can tell them 25 people just to be safe. See you guys next weekend! Smile

Actually slick called and they don't take reservations even for large parties. They said to call an hour before we come.

Yay just a week to go. can't wait to see everyone and of course Matt too!

Should we maybe find a restaurant that takes reservations to be safe? I know the Olive Garden near me, both of them, don't really have a lot of room for a large party like ours.....and they're almost always packed all of Friday evening.

I just don't wana take any chances on not getting to get together anywhere before the show......I'm such a freak when it comes to planning and these kinds of things silent

I just saw this online, 20% coupon off total bill at McFadden's. Here's the website, and they have a form to fill out for large parties to have tables set up in advance..... http://mcfaddensgrandrapids.com/index.php

Hey yall I think Megan has a good point here. McFadden's looks good to me if they take reservations.

Hey y'all!

Yeah, I actually called the GR Olive Garden because I had a question about their menu, but figured since I was on the phone with them I should ask about reservations (not make the reservation just ask about their process) and max # of people that they can host (Hope you don't mind Christina! I love you ) cause I'm a stickler for these kind of details, etc. too.

When I called, they said that they don't take reservations but they have call ahead seating. I also asked them the max number of people they could hold and gave them a high estimate of 30 people in our group and they said 30 would be fine.

Call ahead seating is not guaranteed seating but they said they are pretty dead on Friday at the time we want to come so there should be no problems. We just need to call ahead an hour and a half (if not more) in advance the day of with the exact number in our party.

So, I don't know that we need to change restaurants, it seems like it would be fine.

Whatever works for everyone/is easier is fine with me though! Smile

Me likey the Matt connection 'tis appropriate/fitting..and I like their menu.

Pre-concert, post-concert, whateva' it would be cool to eat/have fun there at some point during this little adventure.

I have NO PROBLEM with that at all. It doesn't matter to me, I'm not picky about restaurants! McFadden's would definitely be appropriate, and I've never been there. Plus if they actually do take reservations that is awesome. I'm also big on making solid plans like all of you guys said so I'd rather have a guarantee that there is space for us all to sit in the same area! It looks like a nice place with decent prices. Should we go for it?
