  1. This is a great place organize an event; they have great staff and great events put on here! I had nothing but great times and great conversations there. They served slider and shrimp cakes as appetizer at Boston venues with chicken skewers, and eggrolls that had veggies on the inside and some kind of creamy fruit sauce on top.
