Where can I throw a baby shower in Pittsburgh?

Hi, fellow Pittsburgh Mefites, I'm knocked up!
A friend of mine has been very gracious as to throw a baby shower for me and my husband in early November. However, I have a very large, very local family and that's made finding a space very difficult as none of our houses can really fit more than 15 people at a time comfortably.
I don't want this to cost a lot of money, but we're running out of time to just pick something. I would totally be happy with a space in a church basement or a firehall with card tables and folding chairs, but we don't even know who to call.
Does anyone have any ideas? I just need a space that won't cost more than a few hundred dollars to rent, will hold at least 50 people, and will have inexpensive catering or allow us to bring in our own food. Ideally, there would be a little natural light and I would be able to bring in some cocktails (I believe everyone needs a drink at a baby shower! Except me. For now.), but I would be okay with doing without those things.
