I'm planning to call the hotel tomorrow (Tues) and see what I can set up. Many of us are staying at the Hilton in East Brunswick, so I thought I'd keep things simple and make reservations at the hotel's restaurant. (I'm still open to suggestions though! Especially if anyone knows the area well.)
Last year, the restaurant let us have a semi-private room for the entire evening, so people just showed up whenever they got into town. Most of us ordered dinner, and the wait staff didn't seem to mind taking orders as new people arrived.
I thought I'd try and reserve the space starting around 6:30pm for the entire evening. (I think the restaurant closes at 10pm.)
What do you think?
