We went with
Smoke salmon with cream cheese
Boursin cheese canap©
Mini vol au vent with sea food
Beef brochette with blue cheese sauce
But honestly I don't know if that is what we got! Like most of you we didn't know what a lot of the options were so we didn't really know what to expect them to look like...the appetizers we got all looked beautiful (from the pictures I have seen) and our guests said they were tasty (we missed the cocktail hour to do photos) but I'm not certain what everything was just from looking at pictures - one seems to have a fruit garnish which seems odd with our choices? I have posted a couple pictures of the apps below -- I know for sure the round ones in the middle of the first pic are mini vol au vent and I am guessing the triangle toasts beside them might be smoke salmon or boursin cheese?
I wasn't concerned though - everyone said there was lots to eat and they tasted great. We had left overs since some many people had been snacking earlier in the day (our ceremony was at 4) or ate a late lunch.
At the regular bars I recall seeing Bacardi Rum, Smirnoff Vodka, and Canadian Mist (Whiskey) most days but sometimes it was switched up - definitely had Crown in the lobby bar at least twice over the week we stayed. I didn't tend to notice brands but I know the drinks were good (definitely not watered down as some reviewers have said on tripadvisor) and everyone seemed pleased with their options. They also had cans of Bud Light which many people enjoyed after they wanted to switch it up from Corona.
*We asked for the mini bar fridges in the room to be stocked with Bud Light and Corona on the wedding day and they did so happily (and also put two bottles on wine on ice for us) when we were getting ready. Similarly we ordered 6 packs of Bud from room service after the bar was closed and that was not a problem either....wow it sounds like we have a drinking problem!
As for booze - the preferred club lounge always had top shelf.
In the preferred club lounge I know they always had:
Whiskey - Crown Royal
Vodka - Grey Goose
Scotch - Johnny Walker
-- plus a whole ton of other booze, we actually heard several comments about how surprised people were to see the quality of alcohol.
Hope that helps!
