Meeting Site Showcase
By Marcia Bradford
For avid gamers, meetings at casino resorts always offer up lots of thrilling opportunities. But the excitement at the South's premier gaming destinations goes far beyond the blackjack tables, slot machines and roulette wheels. Here's a look at the wide range of enticing amenities and activities at some of the region's hottest sites for group events.
L'auberge du Lac (Lake Charles, La.) Whether you set the spark with a special event at Touloulou's, a private beach behind the resort, with a casual deck and bar, or fire up your group with an elegant evening meal on the multi-tiered land- scaped Terrace, make sure to soak in the scenery of this Lake Charles location. Day- time adventures include teeing off on the Contraband Bayou Course, shopping at up- scale boutiques or getting rejuvenated at the Spa du Lac. Choose between a private adults-only pool with cabanas and bar serv- ice or a family-styled pool and lazy river. Dine distinctively at Ember Grill and Wine Bar or Asia. For nighttime sizzle, stop by Jack After Dark, featuring classic grooves and retro vibes as well as headlining guest per- formers, or join the crowd at the Piano Bar. ■
