Cash bar tacky for a 50th birthday party?
We're considering doing a 50th birthday party at a country club with about 75 guests. We're hung up on the bar situation. I've looked at this thread in the wedding forum and there are lots of opinions. It appears that there are different trends depending on the part of the country you live in. We're in southern California. Either we cut way back on the guest list and do an open bar, or do a cash bar and keep the guest list intact.
I'm guessing that whatever rules apply to wedding events would apply to a 50th birthday party - right?
Any opinions would be appreciated.
