Saddle Peak lodge for B-day dinner?

Hoover13 | Jun 19, 2007 12:59 PM

Well, it's that time in my life. The big 3-0. While I've gone back and forth with B-day ideas, what I really want is a good meal / good time. Looks like I will be staying at the Chateau Marmont for the weekend and will have roughly 10 people out to dinner with me. I have been thinking and have always wanted to go to SPL, and was thinking this might be the perfect night. We will get a car to drive us out there so we can enjoy the view and have a few (ok a lot) of drinks.

While I'm definitely not looking to go to the latest "celebrity hotspot" I'm also worried that SPL will be a bit too sophisticated/dry for us? What's the call? Can I go there with a group of ten 30 something’s, all drinking and I'm sure being a bit loud (by no means obnoxious –ok maybe a little)? Am I crazy for thinking this will work? Should I just stick closer to the hotel?

Also, if we do end up making it there where should I request to sit (please remember there will be at least 10 of us.)

Any info you have would be most appreciated. Thanks!
