Where should we have a party?

What would be a good place to have a post-wedding reception for ~100 people in or around Seattle, WA? The wedding is in Wisconsin but we want a reception for all of our coworkers back in Seattle.

I work on the east side and about 80% of my coworkers live there. SO is a grad student at UW. This means we'll have a mix of people coming from UDistrict and people coming from Redmond/Bellevue. I'm thinking something on the east side would probably be cheaper, and since east siders like to bitch about driving around in Seattle I'm leaning towards something near Redmond or Bellevue.
I haven't decided yet whether it's going to have catered food or whether it will be a pot luck. The event will be early June (wedding is May 22, we leave on honeymoon June 18th-ish so it'll fall between these two dates). I'd like some sort of DJ/band. Someone to serve drinks would be good.
Any other ideas/gotchas/did you think of this'es welcome.
And what do you think about a pot luck wedding reception?
