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.
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.
