I'm sure we can do better than that - for a family of 4 that would be almost $400 Shocked and for what? A boat ride and dinner? I believe that will be just too pricey for most regardless of their budget.

There is a good Italian restaurant in Fort Lauderdale called: Casa D'Angelo
that might be an idea.

Las Olas Boulevard is very accessible, even without a car (as long as you can grab the water taxi): http://www.lasolasboulevard.com/

This is an option for those who might want to be too "groupy"

Another suggestion might be a cocktail hour at the hotel and then allow people free time for dinner and settling in for the night

I think I may have found something. I have never been to this but, there is a dinner theater show called Laffing Matterz

And from the website questions and answers:

Do you have group rates?

We have special packages for groups of 20 to 175. For more information, please contact Rita Wells at Laffing Matterz directly at 954-763-5236 or via e-mail at rita@laffingmatterz.com.

What is your menu like?

Our menu features fresh, exciting cuisine. Some of our featured items are listed below.

Appetizers:
Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail
Summer Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce
Crab Cake with Creole Mustard Sauce
Escargots
Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Cap

Entrees:
(Each entree included steamed vegetables and a starch)
Tenderloin of Beef with Port Wine Demiglace
Jumbo Shrimp Stuffed with Crabmeat
Pork Porterhouse with Sage Sauce
Herb-Crusted Sea Bass with Pineapple, Red-Pepper Salsa
Teriyaki Salmon
Stuffed Chicken Breast
Vegetarian Polenta Portobello Stack

Desserts:
Cream Puffs in Hot Fudge
Chocolate Bread Pudding
Our "Incredible" Key Lime Pie
Butterfinger Cup Sundae
New York Cheesecake
Tartuffo
Raspberry Sorbet with Berries

Is there a minimum age requirement

You do not have to be 21 to attend Laffing Matterz, however, we do recommend that parents be aware that some of our material may not be suitable for children. Consider our show to be rated PG_13. Of course, you must be 21 to consume alcohol.

Reservations

Dinner Theatre Show Package reservations for Laffing Matterz of Ft. Lauderdale should be made early.

Guests may phone Laffing Matterz directly to make reservations at 954-763-LAFN (5236).
Show Package Prices:

$49.50 Wednesday through Friday and Sunday

$54.50 Saturday

Show Package price includes salad, entree and performance.
Appetizers, desserts and drinks are available a la carte.
Tax and 18% gratuity are not included and will be added to your final check.

Although we certainly do our best to honor all seating requests, we can not guarantee specific table requests unless you are reserving the Sky Box Area.


So what do you all think? I doubt there will be many children on the Genesis Inaugural since it will be in the Fall and most will be in school.

Has anyone ever been to this show? Is it worth it?

Not that familiar with Lauderdale, so I can't really make any suggestions.
