My fiance and I are trying to find a location in Tucson for a rehearsal dinner this October that will accomodate 80-100 ppl. Originally, we were thinking something casual like Mexican food but most of the restaurants we like such as El Charro and Rosa's are too small. Now we're thinking of outdoor venues with a patio or courtyard, as we really want to stay away from the indoor banquet room feel. But the food doesn't have to be Mexican or Southwestern cuisine necessarily.
I think atmosphere matters most to us as we'd like to make a good impression on the many out-of-towners. Location isn't too big a factor but most of the wedding party will be staying up north at Hacienda del Sol and Westward Look.
Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for your input!
