Help Las Vegas Family Reunion

Posted by coastsider (My Page) on

My cousin is planning our family reunion--44 adults & 5 children--in Las Vegas in < 2 wks. Adults range in age from 20-84. I rented a house for 4 families to stay. My cousin made the assumption we could hold all the events @ the house. It's a big house, but not that big. We can handle an outside activity in the pm, e.g., BBQ, which should work for the first night. We'll rent tables/chairs & a canopy tent. The down side is that it is over 100 degrees @ 7pm. I think we can get away with only one such event if we want everyone to be comfortable. Therefore, my other cousin & I are looking for a venue for Friday lunch (11-3) and Saturday dinner (5-8 or 6-9). Don't ask why the planner is not doing it. We want it to be reasonable & fun. I found a Marie Callendar's & a banquet hall, which are reasonable, but I don't know about fun. Does anyone have any suggestions for the Las Vegas area? Thanks in advance.

Not sure what your definition of fun is but... Get a house with a pool, get some alcohol and food and let the good times roll. When you can't stand each other anymore, it's time to check out the Casinos. Take a helicopter tour of the city. Crash some conventions. Send the kids to indoor skydiving. Have Gramps pop some viagra and get him a call girl, send Grandma to Madame Tussauds to be part of the exhibit. In all seriousness, spend a few minutes with Google, break up into groups according to ability and interest and have fun. If you can't have fun in Vegas you can't have fun anywhere. It's all what you make of it, but a banquet hall??? Not so much....

What part of the city is your house you are renting in? That will narrow the choices.

One place I would look at is the Wolfgang Puck cafe at the Spring Preserve. It is off Valley View and Charleston (near downtown). Not only is there a place for lunch but there are great ehibits and walking trails if you are going to be there in the middle of summer.

If you don't need a full meal, how about the Fondue lounge at the Ethal M factory? It is in Henderson.

On the westside, you could probably take over the small restaurant called Gina's Bistro or if you want something more casual, how about the back room of Wild Bufflo Wings. They have like 12 different type of sauces and other foods also.

You might also get a lot of responses by posting your question on Tripadvisor.
