Going to Mohegan Sun, need restaurant recommendation

Hi everyone,
My friends and I are planning a trip to Mohegan Sun for a bachelorette party in August. Does anyone have any recommendations for a restaurant? I see there are several to chose from, but I've never been there before. We're looking for a place that has great food, not "pubby", but not extraordinarily expensive.
If anyone has a recommendation I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

Mariachi in Boston?

Hi everyone. My husband LOVES mariachi music so I'd like to take him out sometime soon to a restaurant that has it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've heard of Tacos el Charo in JP, has anyone been there and seen the musicians? Any feedback would be great. Thanks in advance.

One-day visit to Boston

You could try Casablanca. It's been around for a long time and the food there is good. Not sure if they have a website, but give it a shot. I believe it's on Brattle Street.

Dinner for 20 in Cambridge

With kids I assume you're looking for a casual atmosphere. Why don't you try the Cambridge Common on Mass Ave? You can call and see if they can accomodate you for sure, but I believe it would be no problem. The food is good, and it's definitely ok for kids.

Lounge/club recommendations for 30 somethings?

Hi, I'll be in the city with a bunch of friends this weekend and we'd be looking for some places to hang out after dinner. We are eating at Cafe Spiaggia one night and the other night at Wave. Does anyone have any nightlife recommendations for after dinner? We are not dying to go to a dance club, but we certainly would if it's a cool place we can lounge at as well. Thanks in advance for all of your input.

Restaurant recommendations / Peninsula Hotel

Hi Chicago area residents!
My girlfriends and I (7 total) are going to be in Chicago soon for a weekend and we're staying at the Peninsula Hotel. We are interested in a nice dinner Saturday night and we're looking for some recommendations as none of us are familiar with Chicago restaurants. We'd be open to American, Japanese, Mediteranean, Thai, Mexican, Spanish, Italian, basically any type of cuisine. Can anyone give us some restaurant recommendations? Our price range would be ~ $20.00 entree or somewhere in that area, with a fun atmosphere of course. We obviously are willing to take a cab, but don't want to go too far.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
