Ok, here’s the deal:
The Jerry’s in Universal City isn’t a full-sized restaurant, and wouldn’t be suitable for us.
We have two options: Stay in Citywalk but choose a different place -OR- Go with the Jerry’s in Studio City.
There are a few options available in Universal City, so I’ll give what info I have on them:
Gladstones: Seafood place, might be able to fit us, might be expensive.
Daily Grill Short Order: All-round restaurant with a variety of food. Don’t know the prices, but they don’t take reservations for Saturday nights. If we choose this, we would have to show up and hope to get us all seated or make a reservation at about 5 and wait until dinner (Which I’m not particularly keen on doing).
Tony Roma’s: Rib place, similar problems to Gladstones.
We could dump the City Walk theme and go to the Jerry’s in Studio City. This would probably be best, but on the 24th there is a large group reserved for 7:00 already. If we choose this, we might need to have a reservation for about 8-8:15.
What I think would be fun is if we choose the Jerry’s in Studio City. We would be having dinner late, but if people wanted to meet before dinner, they can go bowling in the attached alley. This way we still have a lot of time to chat and meet everyone, still have the good food and prices, and wouldn’t have to pay for parking. This is the idea I cast my vote for.
