Event location recommendations, anyone?

Hello everyone! I'm looking for recommendations on where to hold some of our events... specifically the upcoming Darwin Day Spectacular on February 12th.

Here's the deal: Our first couple of events were at Piper Down. At the beginning of 2009, however, the new no-smoking-in-bars law went into effect, so the back room where we had our first event is now the "smoking room."

Piper Down remains a great spot for the Drinking Skeptically nights, however, they can no longer accommodate us for more organized events, such as anything with a guest speaker.

Does anyone know of a good spot where we can hold events such as this that have a back room or semi-secluded space? It might be nice if it were a restaurant instead of bar, as that would accommodate anyone under 21, though feel free to give me some feedback.

  1. I have two recommendations...

    1. Fat's Pub and Grill - I'm not sure if it's an official bar or not. They do have a great space downstairs which is used for party rentals or overflow on busy nights. If I recall, they charge a small fee to use it, but if you brought in enough folks who committed to buying food and beer, they'd probably let you have it for free (especially in today's economy). There's also pool tables and a dart board down there.

    2. Fiddler's Elbow - it's a private club. They have the 'covered' patio in back which probably gets zero use during weeknights. It might be a little chilly in there though...they have propane heaters available.
