A friend works for a partner at a hedge fund. The partner has invested in a restaurant, which was supposed to be open in time for the fund's Christmas party. The restaurant business being what it is, the restaurant won't be open in time. So, while the date is set (Thursday December 16), the venue is still up in the air. She needs a private space for 60 people. Since this is a hedge fund we're talking about, I won't say that money is no object, but let's say that penny-pinching isn't the goal either.
