Hello Angel,
I am sorry you had to go through chemo and I am happy that you are back and celebrating.

I can help you with one thing. For the food catering, depending where you live.
Tarboosh in redwood city does a good job catering for large groups, if you want some light dishes like hummus and kibbeh.

There is an Iraqi cook from whom the Iraqi community order the whole backed Lamb.
I don't know him but I can ask if you are interested. I was once in one of the gathering and they delivered it and it was really good. But that's a heavy meal.
For a musician I can ask the Iraqi community also they had a few in house musicians who maybe interested.

Where are you from and what kind of middle eastern music do you prefer?
I know only the Arabic sources.

Raida..

Hello all,
 
I just joined your meetup group and am excited about participating in your activities !
 
I'm also in the midst of planning a middle eastern-themed party to celebrate my end of chemo.   I hope/expect about[masked] people to show up.  Could really use some input from this group on resources such as:
 
1) middle eastern store in the bay area somewhere, where they sell the Turkish coffee dzezvas and cups.
I'd like to give these sets away as thank you gifts to a number of people at the party.  I got mine in Greece but haven't seen any here that are hammered or etched copper with beautiful cup inserts and tray...all I've seen are the dzezvas and they were really plain...
 
2) which restaurants are great at catering an event like this inexpensively...
 
3) are there any people in this group who could or would be interested in coming to perform either playing an instrument or singing or dancing?  And what compensation would you say would be good as incentive/reward for this?
 
I'm grateful to any feedback on any of the above.
Many thanks,
