Home HOT GAMING SITES Planning Directory Planner Resources Meeting Site Showcase Palace (Biloxi, Miss.) Enter a new age in gaming resorts at the only smoke- free casino along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Renovated and redefined in 2011, the Palace now entices guests with a rede- fined lobby that is spacious and welcom- ing. Dining is enhanced with the re-opening of the award-winning Mignon's Steak and Seafood and the addition of the Stacked Grill, the Palace Café and Bakery and the new Palace Buffet. Contact Lounge and Sports Bar is the hot spot for live entertainment on weekends and sports viewing every day. A retreat from reality starts at the Pure Spa, moves on to the poolside cabanas and concludes in the plush guest rooms with great views of the gulf or the bays. Exploration begins with walks on the nearby beach, cruises along the coastal high- way and golf at the Preserve. ■ Hard Rock (Tulsa, Okla.) Party like a rock star at this sleek and stylish casino resort, where special events range from elegant to edgy. Impress your VIPS by gathering in the Sky Room, with floor-to- ceiling windows offering panoramic views from the hotel's 18th floor. Be ready to rock at The Joint, featuring "top-shelf stars" and venue-encircling big screens. Meet in the middle at the unique 80-foot ice-topped Center Bar, the coolest and hottest place in town. See and be seen at Fric- tion, Tulsa's late night place to dance, two-step over to Cabin Creek for country tunes or soak in jazzy sophistication at C:Note. When it's time to dine go to the top of the Hard Rock for upscale cuisine at McGill's on 19 or try home-style cooking at Toby Keiths I Love This Bar and Grill. Swim, work out or shop til you drop between meetings and gaming. ■ Pearl River (Choctaw, Miss.) Get your group glowing with a reception at the Arena at Golden Moon, a special event space situated right in the center of the action where big name entertainers bring the best in blues, country, and rock and roll. Encourage meeting-goers to in- dulge in Italian-inspired cuisine at Remo's, sample the steaks and seafood specialties at Eclipse Grill, or enjoy a latte and pastry at the Whiskey Bean. Send them out for sun and fun at Geyser Falls water park or the Dancing Rabbit golf course. Advise aromatherapy or a variety of other restorative treatments at the Spa at Silver Star to pre- pare for shopping at a variety of on-site retail venues. Kick it Caribbean-style at the Beach Club, a tropi- cal venue with a performance stage, full-service restau- rant, tiki bar and heated pool. ■ 26 ConventionSouth APRIL 2012 www.con v
