Blkatz - i live and work in C.C. too! what neighborhood do you live in? have i asked this before? lol
We have been dying to go to Chifa - did you like it?



Katrina - i love El Vez as well but I would actually suggest El Camino Real over El Vez - not as expensive and just as good if not better - it is new and on Liberties Walk across from Bar Ferdinand. and El Azteca recently got their liquor license so i am not sure if you can bring your own tequila anymore sad.gif

Lucky Strike or North Bowl are GREAT ideas!

sooo maybe we are onto something here...

you guys could go to El Camino Real (mexican food, margaritas, great jukebox, fun atmosphere - then after dinner walk like 4 blocks south to North Bowl (you could reserve the area upstairs where they have 2 private bowling lanes and a lounge area next to the upstairs bar - it is nice and overlooks the whole downstairs!)

i have thought about that! if you are a mexican food junkie (like me too!) have you been to ...

La Esperanza Restaurant & Bar (in NJ)

Xochitl (Philly)

Lolita (Philly across from El Vez)

uh-oh i'm getting hungry!

and Katrina when you go to El Camino make sure to get the Nachos with Steak and Guac - they are off the hook!

Blkatz - i am PM'ing you :)

I know it sounds crazy, but I have a ton of gay friends, and you will never have a better time than going to the gay bars! Plus you don't have to worry about a bunch of lame guys chasing you all around all night. I don't specifically know which ones they go to, but can ask which are the best if you wanted to do that!

if my "best gay" was still alive i can guarantee we'd be out at the gay bars ... ALWAYS the best time. sadly, he passed about 2 years ago ... still can't believe he won't be at my wedding! sad.gif

 

on a happier note, thanks so much ladies for all the great suggestions. we were already looking at el vez (though might be pricey for some) and el azteca (we used to frequent the one in the northeast before it closed ... very yummy margaritas!). my MOH suggested possibly silk city afterward?

 

i had also thought about lucky strike (never been there, but sounds like fun), but never heard of north bowl ... gotta check that out too. those might be better options as i will likely have some older ladies (my two sisters are bridesmaids and they are 50 and 48!!!) mixed with 30-ish girls. actually, i'm not sure if my sisters would come out beyond dinner ... they might feel awkward.

 

it would be 20 girls if *everyone* came ... probably more like 10 of us in reality, lol.

 

oh and all you philly girls should check out this thread: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t36815. we still need to nail down a time, but we're doing a BDW meetup at chickie's and pete's in south philly on saturday, april 18th!

here are the links to North Bowl and El Camino Real

Welcome to North Bowl

El Camino Real

These two places are literally like 4 blocks apart - maybe a 3 minute walk - you might be able to get more carry-over from some of the ladies if you don't have to travel far to get to the 2nd place??

also as for Silk City - do you mean the diner part or the club part?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
