Private Dining/Restaurant Rental (Edmonton)

I ate at the Prairie Bistro not too long ago (at the Enjoy Centre) and remember commenting what a nice place it would be for a wedding reception. They closed part of it later in th afternoon for a private function so they obviously do that sort of thing, but I don't know any of the details. It might be worth checking out's a beautiful space, and the food was good.

All the best,and congratulations!

recession deals in las vegas

We tried the Japonais deal at the Mirage tonight (7 dollar drinks and appetizers from 5-8). The drinks were great - 3 different cocktails, including their signature "Flowering Orchid" , are offered for $7 instead of the usual $14. The two I tried (the Orchid and the Red One) were delicious. They also had a pretty good selection of beers for $4, and a nice flight of sakes (3 different ones, all clearly labeled with the differences explained...really well done) for $15.

The appetizers, though tasty, were such tiny portions you couldn't help but feel ripped off, even at $7. The Kobe Beef Slider was just that...a single tiny burger. Slider - singular. There were at most 6 pieces of calamari...again, who wants to pay more than a dollar for EACH PIECE of calamari? The sushi rolls were better. We had the unagi and avocado and the tempura shrimp - they were delicious, with six pieces each. We didn't do the "Two can dine for $45" deal (you share two appetizers, an entree and a dessert) but if the size of the appetizers was anything to go by, I wouldn't go hungry!
