Thought I'd bite the bullet and finally organise a p/ball party for ds's 15th birthday thinking it would be about £25 each, but it's £32.50 each for 400 balls, £27 or something for 200 balls and the guy said 200 wouldn't be enough. Then there's the burgers to be cooked in a rather manky looking kitchen at about a fiver a head which I know isn't bad.
He wants about 10 friends (originally wanted to invite the whole class ).
Has anyone ever managed to negotiate a discount at one of these places and if so how?
I did this a few years ago for DS1. There were about 10 of them and it got totally out of hand and came to about £300. In the end we were only filling their guns about half full each time. I couldn't find any discount places cos of their age (they were about 11/12 and not many places took them at this age). Not sure what you do if you only pay for the first 200 if a kid has not got enough money on them though.
