So Zarda BBQ did not pan out for us... about 2 days after we called for estimates they increased their prices by like a dollar a person. And FI and I went down to the one in Blue Springs yesterday (the one we were going to have the RD at), and it was just... ew. Hard to come up with a better description, lol.
So this morning we were back to square one, and while I was searching around, I came across a site that said Minsky's Pizza had group party packs, and that some locations had a "private party room". I wasn't too sure about how much it'd cost, because i've been to Minsky's before with just FI and spent a buttload of money on our meal, but I figured i'd give it a shot.
I called the one in Independence and they don't have a special room, so then I tried Lee's Summit. Apparently, they do have an area that is sectioned off from the rest of the restaurant that can seat about 25-30 people. They also have party pack prices for 20 people and 30 people. The 20 person one I think she said costs $130, and the 30 person pack costs $160. The only thing that I would say is a bit annoying, is that on Fridays and Saturdays they will not hold reservations between 5-8pm because they're too busy. But anytime other than that they will, so we'll just set it up to go there before 5. But if I get the 30 person package deal, it'll be about $6.65 a person for my 24 guests, and there'll be extras in case some people want more food. I just wanted to share, maybe this will help somebody out! I know it made me happy!
