My sister is flying in from Chicago to get married. All our family is in Texas, his are in NY, and I am in PHX. She mentioned Bahama Breeze, and I nearly lost it. I volunteered the services of chowhounders to locate a better non-chain place that we would be able to get 20-30 people in to.
Its not a traditional wedding, family, or anything. Obviously if they looked at Bahama Breeze they aren't too picky. I just don't want her to look back at it later and regret it.
Hell, I'd pick the Hofbrauhaus over Bahama Breeze. Then we'd at least be in walking distance to the Double Down.
I think she likes the tropical theme. that is why she was looking at BB. I told her to look at Trader Vic's. Even though I was dissappointed with the one in Scottsdale, I am sure most of the people would love it because they aren't exactly foodies.
