iCi isn't the only place to throw a private bash (though it's received positive reviews from our readers thus far). This comment was posted to the blogger version of CHB, so many of you may not have seen it: My husband and I on November 17th, 2006 had a private party of 12 at Brown Betty's Cafe and no one was disappointed. First, let me expressed how comforting it was to be able to entertain our friends and feel as if we were in our own living room, except we had great service thanks to Ms Renee for hosting, great food, and fantastic music. As for the cooking staff (Mr. D & Ms. Cynthia) thank you so much for an "AWESOME" dinner. Of course, it would not have been a success if not for Owner of Brown Betty’s Café and Chef Ms. Cynthia Walker. Thank you for making Nick's Birthday a memorable evening and allowing us to literally take over your Café.
I didn't know BB was available for private events, but I'm sure a lot of local restaurants/shops would be open to it if asked. Good to know Brown Betty is an option, as the space is both beautiful and intimate. FYI, Polish Bar also does custom parties and events.
