One of my husband's sisters called tonight: she and her hubby got a great last-minute package deal and are coming out to Vegas from the east coast later this week. It was rather unexpected, and we already had plans to be away starting Saturday...and I work late on Thursday. DH will get more of a visit than I will due to my work schedule, but obviously I want to see them as well...we only see each other about once a year if that. So, it was agreed before I even got in on the conversation: we'd all go out Friday night. DH was reporting the phone call to me and then says: "oh, that's your birthday, isn't it?" Now, birthdays aren't THAT big of a deal to me, and we already celebrated two weeks ago when DH turned sixty...but still, I was looking forward to champagne and a nice dinner at home cooked by my favorite husband/cook. Instead I need someplace on or near the strip with a celebratory feel, plenty of vegetarian options, middle-of-the road in cost, NOT a steakhouse, and that won't embarrass me horribly if DH should let slip that its a special day (no waiters singing, in other words!). Ideas? And would you let them know it was your birthday ahead of time so you can celebrate or just avoid possible embarrassment and tell hubby to try and keep his mouth shut?
