Brunch in Palm Springs?

Ok, first the parameters:

-30pp in our party
-less pricey is better, we will have had two pricey events so a better value is good for us
-we are in town, unfortunately, during the Dinah Shore Weekend so the town will be packed
-since we usually take up two seatings, we tip the server double
-we must sit in the same area/room since we do a gift exchange after the meal
-free champers or drink discounts

The past few years we have been to Dale's Lost Highway, The Villas Resort and I forget where else. Our first year (this is #5) we only had 18 pp so we ate a GREAT breakfast at Don and Sweet Sue's. But it was just breakfast.

I have thought of Hambuger Mary's but the reviews on service suck. I should call Dale's but the town will be overflowing with women attending the golf weekend.

Lastly I'm tempted to rent a darn bus and take everybody on an oddball excursion the to the taco stand near cabazon and then back to Koffi's garden area to do our gift exchange.

    We went to Piero's Acqua Pazza in Rancho Mirage last weekend for a morning-after the wedding brunch and it was great. There were probably 20 of us, and they setup a buffet-style thing in the gazebo on the water at the River. You should check it out. http://www.pierosacquapazza.com/

      For such a large group on a busy weekend it may be hard to get reservations.

      One possibility would be the buffet at the Morongo Casino. Their brunch includes unlimited free bloody mary's and champagne and costs ~$25. The dining room is huge and has a couple separate dining rooms for large groups. The food is okay for a buffet.
