Cater it & Call it a Day
December, 2018 - Issue #171
Yeah, maybe you could host 50 people in your home or office, cook everything from scratch, rent additional tables/chairs/serveware, clean from top to bottom and festively decorate - but when catering and event-hosting options are this good, why would you?

JJ's Bar & Grill
Best for: informal gatherings, party (read: alcohol) atmosphere
Why: Voted SCV's best bar multiple years in a row, JJ's also boasts a large banquet room that can privately accommodate over 100 guests - but this is also the party place for just a few of your fave party people. The drinks are solid, the staff is great and there's a lot to do - even the wallflowers will want to participate, thanks to darts, a new pool table, karaoke, live DJ events, cornhole and more.

Hyatt Regency Valencia
Best for: large and intimate gatherings, corporate parties, all-inclusive needs
Why: Your holiday party sets the tone for the way you will kick off your new year. At the Hyatt Regency Valencia, you can rest assured that their team of experts will provide you with top-quality planning and service so you can spend the holidays the right way. Cozy up while you enjoy The Hyatt's famous Hot Cocoa Bar & S'mores Station and leave the details in their hands. 799-1234

The Local Pub & Grill
Best for:
The fun, causal-yet-alluring atmosphere of the well-appointed space is perfect for friend-and-family holiday get togethers, business lunches and more - and yes, you can bring the kids
Why: They serve breakfast on the weekends and lunch and dinner throughout the week, making it ultra convenient. Seasonal eats and drinks make it even merrier, but drop in on a special-event night like Taco & Margarita Trivia Tuesdays, Mystery Prize Bingo Winesday Wednesdays, Live-music Fridays and Saturdays and more to really set the stage for a memorable experience. 495-9192

Marston's Restaurant
Best for:
foodies, on- and off-site events, truly-private parties, take-out
Why: Marston's is the one-size-fits-all favorite because everyone loves it. It's the Tom Hanks of the SCV food scene: award winning, with classic American flavor, wide appeal and the ability to completely customize a performance based on its audience. Need simple takeout or delivery to your home or office? Marston's. Private party on site? Marston's. Full catering off site? Marston's. OMG I have to cater a gorgeous breakfast spread next week and I'm freaking out? Marston's. Chef Jim McCardy is the Mr. Congeniality of the culinary world and he'll make it work, deliciously. 253-9910
