I have been doing this a while but would like some input. How do you guys go about breaking down how much food to make, drinks to bring (say they want lemonade and tea). Example. for 200 people I came up 12.5 gallons of tea and 12.5 gallons of lemonade. That would be 200 16oz glasses worth. Am going in the right direction with this? Just curious, always open to learn something new.
Oh, and sides: 50 lbs of beans 50 lbs of slaw...? 4oz portions of both...for 200.:wacko:

That sounds about right. Can you use the leftovers? What size cups are you using? Is there going to be ice for the drinks? All these will determine how much is used.
