I'm organizing a meetup/happy hour for anywhere from 15-30 people (most of whom are from out of town) the Friday evening before the marathon. I'm looking for a place in midtown, preferably, where we can get some drinks, apps, chat and likely take a ton of pictures. The perfect place wouldn't be too loud (so we can hear each other) and won't be overrun by tourists.
Everyone is paying their own tab, so I don't think a party or group space will work for this.
I appreciate any and all suggestions! Thanks!
