The Garden Court

Ladies Luncheon

When the Palace Hotel opened its doors in 1875, The Garden Court was a carriage entrance to the hotel.  In 1906, following the earthquake, the Palace closed its doors for the first restoration.  Three years later the carriage entrance was transformed and The Garden Court was unveiled.  Since its debut in 1909, The garden Court has been recognized as one of the world's most beautiful public spaces. 

Dining in the Garden Court today is indeed a rare opportunity for our Casper ladies to immerse themselves in the romance of a bygone era.  Such turn-of-the-century grandeur is the signature of the Palace Hotel.  If you are interested, contact Steve Greene: Ladies Luncheon - YES

The cost per person for this most enjoyable luncheon is $40 per person.  Please mail your check to Phil Johnson.


The Flying Leatherneck Steakhouse & Lounge Men's Luncheon & Photo

The Leatherneck Steakhouse and Flying Leatherneck Lounge is decorated with military memorabilia.  Located in their Union Square restaurant is the perfect place for our guys to enjoy some drinks together, along with a great meal.

Besides lunch, this setting also provides us with a great location for a Casper group photo.  The plan is to take a group photo of all of the guys together, plus second photo opportunity for all of the Caspers who brought their Casper Platoon Leather Jacket.

 If you are interested, contact Steve Greene: Men's Luncheon - YES

The cost per person for this most enjoyable luncheon is $30 per person.  Please mail your check to Phil Johnson.
