Coming into Blue Springs/Independence,

Hoover13 | Aug 12, 2008 04:37 PM

I'm coming into town in October for a wedding. We will be staying at the Courtyard by Marriott Kansas City - Blue Springs. I'd like to arrange a 20 person (plus or minus a few) dinner for my family the night before the wedding. I've been to Kansas City a few times and understand that there are some nice spots, but unfortunately I think it may be too far of a drive (Grandma's driving is a bit scary these days). Please let me know if you disagree. I've been doing some general research in CHOW but have not found much. In Zagat I was able to find and was considering....

- Carrabba's
- Garozzo's
- Siki Japanese
- Hareford House

My family is pretty easy going but I'd like to take them somewhere other than a chain restaurant that is fun and also has a full bar (we have not all seen one another in awhile). I'm open to all sorts of cuisines.

Would also love to hear of any bar recommendations you have nearby the hotel so I can take a few "breaks" during the wedding and afterwards...

Thank you very much in advance! I look forward to reading what your town has to offer!
