I don't see a problem in us having 70 guests for Calabash (we are at 60 right now) but if you are between 50-70 what do you do?
Also, I think I know the answer but I've been a lot of disco talk recently... if you rent the restaurant for your reception you are able to have the DJ and a dance floor in the restaurant, right?
I will have around 60ish guest and we are planning on having our dinner at the Calabash. I was told that if you have less then 70 you can't have a private reception (4 hours) however we can have a Semi-Private which we will have the restaurant to ourselves for 2 hours. With the semi-private you can set up the sound system and have a DJ, so I assume its the same for the Private. They say you can have room for dancing, depending on the amount of people. If you had 100, it would probably be tight, 70 should be fine. ...
My assumption is that if its private, you would only have the restaurant space from 6:30-10:30, in which it would finish up. The Disco opens at 10:30. If its the same resort DJ, he would then move over there and play for the rest of the night. (which is then... free!)
