I'm going to take on the task of getting a room and menu for the big dinner.

Based on last year I suppose the per head cost should stay to under $20.

I'm asking for any menu suggestions and/or things to absolutely avoid....also drawing on what we had at the 2010 rally.

My menu idea would stick to fairly basic ideas....

Salad - something more than just plain lettuce, but nothing too fancy.
Meat entree - Avoid pork (tends to be dry when served for large groups).  Beef might be ideal.  Chicken tends to be done to death.  Could be a casserole or lasagna as done in 2010.
Veggies - Something simple works best, don't need anything too fancy.
Dinner rolls - Would people be okay with multi-grain or are we a white bread only crowd?
Dessert - I think at least 2 options are needed or the place could just have an assortment.
Canned drinks - soft drinks.

I'd like the place to allow BYOB for those who want something with alcohol since I don't expect them to included alcoholic drinks as part of their quoted price.

Sadly, they are closed for the season.  The restaurant is open only on Fridays and Saturdays, so I have to wait until then to talk to someone.  I hope to get an e-mail exchange going on this with them as I really need to track things in writing.  It's so easy to flub stuff up when you just talk on the phone.

After many tries...okay 2 tries....I got hold of the restaurant.  I should lock down what time should dinner be planned for?

I figure either 6 or 7 pm.  Can't imagine people waiting longer than that to sit down and eat.

6:30 sounds good. Gives people time to finish up their ride and clean up, but not too late to allow them to start meandering off  Wink

Okay, got the stuff on the Bavarian Inn today.

I'm going to do separate threads for each item I need input on.

We'll do the buffet style because it's easier (and just $1 more per person than a sit-down meal).

Highest ranking choices will prevail.  You can change your choices on this poll if you change your mind.

THE OPTIONS:
  • ROULADEN - Thinly sliced top round steak rolled and stuffed with onion, bacon, mustard and dill pickle.  Browned and slow-collked for hours for maximum tenderness.  Served with Spatzles (homemade German noodle dumplings) and red sweet & sour cabbage.
  • STOGANOFF - Lean sirloin chunks slow cooked for tenderness, in a delightful sour cream and mushroom sauce.  Served over Spatzles with red sweet & sour cabbage.
  • SLOW COOKED HERB PORK LOIN ROAST - Slow roasted and seasoned just right, very tender and juicy.  Served with a light brown pork gravy.  (BI suggests homemade mashed potatoes as a side dish).
  • SLOW COOKED ROAST BEEF - Slowly cooked, seasoned to perfection, served with real roast beef gravy.  (BI suggests homemade mashed potatoes as a side dish).
  • HONEY BAKED HAM - Black forest style, slowly cooked in a honey sauce for maximum flavor.  (BI suggests homemade mashed potatoes and pork gravy as a side dish).
  • HAWAIIAN KALUA PIG ROAST - Slowly cooked for 24 hours in ono (good) Hawaiian seasoning.  (BI suggests Hawaiian fried rice and tropical fruit salad as side dishes).


Dinner rolls with butter is included.

Self evident.

Mixed Garden Greens Salad comes with 4 options in dressings (ranch, blue cheese , french, vinegar and oil).

Fruit Salad is whatever in season fruits are available.

From what I can gather, two main things ARE NOT included on the catering offer.

Non-alcoholic beverages

Nothing provided.  $1.75 extra for each drink.  I presume at this point is is pay as you go rather than factor it in per person.

Alcoholic beverages

Beer is $3.75 and up depending on what you order.  Wine is $6.00 and up depending on what you order.  If as a group we don't buy $300 worth of drinks, there's a $50 set-up charge for the bar.  So, I'd like to know if there is sufficient demand for alcoholic drinks at dinner.  No, you can't BYOB to the dining hall.
($300/3.75 = 80 drinks, and I know not all of us drink and I doubt we will have 80 people total).

Desert

Bavarian Inn will offer desert at $5 a slice.  If we want some large desert for the whole group, they suggest having a local bakery make and deliver a sheet cake.  Is that what people want to do or do we not want desert?

BI recommended a local bakery for sheet cakes.  A full sheet cake would cost as much as $42.99.  Cut into 2" by 2" squares, it would serve 96 people.  Cut into 2" by 3" squares, it would serve 64 people).  Only flavor options are white, chocolate and marble (white & chocolate).  Bakery would deliver the cake to BI for no extra charge.
