Help! Need to finalize my B-Day dinner plans

Hoover13 | Jun 21, 2007 04:24 PM

Help - looking for some input on my b-day dinner (#30) which is coming up quick! I have a list, but seem unable to push the button and seal the deal!

While I had originally planned on Saddle Peak Lodge - it just seems too far considering that my party and I will be staying at The Chateau Marmot for the weekend. Also, I'm thinking it will probably be a bit to reserved for my group. While I'm definitely not looking to go to the latest "celebrity hotspot" I need somewhere that I can go with a group of ten 30 something’s, all big on good food and atmosphere, all drinking, and I'm sure being a bit loud (but by no means obnoxious!)

My current list of choices includes, but is so hard to decide on given mixed reviews:

-MADEO (been there and love it, but seems a bit too reserved for this event?)

Chances are I will be taking a car service to any of these restaurants from the hotel, but I'm also thinking I should just play it safe/easy and go to BOA or the hotel restaurant. It's just that neither of those appeal to me as much as the spots above.

Any info would be most appreciated, thanks!!!
