Nightlife wasn't privy to the details of the setup, but we were pleasantly surprised at 3's ability to provide fantastic service and great food for such a large group. We were reminded that Mike was the server assigned to the group, and he did a fantastic job. Keeping drinks filled can definitely be a challenge with such a large group, but from what Nightlife can remember of the night, we never once ran out of drinks.
There was a large table of food set up for the party. This wasn't a sit-down dinner. Nightlife vividly remembers the bacon-wrapped shrimp. They were huge. (Bacon is a popular theme at this restaurant.) There were plenty of other food selections - spinach dip, meats and cheeses, some chicken-on-a-stick-looking thing. All of it was good.
And 3 has an interesting selection of alcohol. Aside from their selection of about 80 beers, 3 has a unique line of specialty liquors. Several of the ladies enjoyed a "Candy Land Margarita," which boasts a Sour Patch Kids-infused tequila. If you thought
Patrón Tequilawas smooth, then you should definitely try this stuff.
Nightlife tried the Vanilla Bean-infused Jim Beam, and longed for the Bacon Bloody Mary (who doesn't love bacon?!). There's also a "Big Kid Chocolate Milk" that uses the Vanilla Beam and a "Winter Blues" that uses Acai Berry Vodka and blueberry puree.
We checked in with the girls in charge of the event. "[The staff was] really easy to work with... everything went very smoothly," they said. "The waiter was AWESOME. I loved him," one exclaimed.
Based on this experience, we'd strongly encourage you to put 3 on your short list if you're looking to plan a party. With great service, awesome food, and a unique drink selection, 3 definitely has a lot going for it.
