Default Cooking for 35 at work?

I got tasked to do BBQ for a going away party for a co-worker who is leaving to join the Navy. I'm cooking for about 30, but there are always stragglers so it could be as many as 35.

Here's what I have so far

14.5 lb brisket
4 lbs pinto beans
75 buns

They want a selection, so I'm also doing pulled pork. How much pork butt do I need? I was thinking at least 15 lbs of pork, but I'm not sure. Keep in mind, most of the people I'm feeding are mechanics and these guys can eat a lot... especially if it's free! I just need to make sure everybody gets fed well. Also, is that enough beans? I bought a 10 lb bag, but I've only soaked about 4 lbs, do I need more?

I also need to come up with another side. I don't think cole slaw will fly with this crowd. Mac and cheese is always a favorite, but I need to prep it the night before and the way I make it doesn't reheat well and I don't have access to an oven. I doubt anyone will complain with just a bunch of meat and beans, but another side would be nice.

Thanks in advance for any help!
