After a full day of running around doing various errands such as buying a new printer for the home office, Cheryl and I went to dinner at the Pacific Buffet in Fremont this evening. Based on the feedback received from our last trip there, we had a look and found that they do have a semi-private banquet room with an official stated capacity of 27 -- but Cheryl counted 46 seats in the room. I call it "semi-private" because besides the doorway from the dining area into the buffet area, there are two open "portholes" between the room and the restaurant's foyer. However, this dining area is separated physically from the rest of the restaurant -- all of the other seating areas are on the opposite side of the buffet. They told me at the front desk that they do accept group bookings to use that room.
Dinner is $14 (not including drinks, tip, and tax -- total $20 each when Cheryl and I ate there). They have an $11 Saturday lunch as well. There is lots of food.
We'll have handouts for the place with us at the BASFA meeting this Monday night.
