I am planning my younger son's Bar Mitzvah in July 2012, at the Robinson Arch and any info. would be greatly appreciated for new fabulous venues, day trip, or cool entertainment ideas. As you might remember last time we did the day trip on Wed. of: Kotel, City of David Water Tunnel Tour, and Holocaust Museum with Light Spectacular Show. (Guests love air conditioned tours with few stairs, no caves, digging...) Should we possibly do: Israel Museum, Rachel's Tomb,
Time Elevator this time? Or Tel Aviv day trip? Also..last time we ate at Darna (Nice atmosphere -ok food), La Guta (Fabulous food and ambiance) for Bar mitzvah lunch, and Teresa on terrace for dinner party with musicians (AMAZING!!). I am trying to change the venues slightly with maybe La Guta for a dinner and find another amazing place for light lunch, and replace Darna with something different.
Oh, we also had Shabbat dinner in King David room at Mount Zion Hotel (food average, but room was really nice). Any ideas or unusual elegant options would be appreciated. Any one hear of Spoons - the new location? Lavon for lunch? I heard Between Arches might be under new management? We considered this last time for a light lunch, but friends said food was disappointing, although it looked coo;l with the stone work and all. We are a small group of approx. 24 guests, but want my son and guests to have a trip to remember! Any ideas for amazing food and day trip would be greatly appreciated. Also does anyone know why Shmil's in the Lab closed? I loved that place for a casual meal before the Bar Mitzvah. Also, anyone know about dessert type drummers or unusual entertainment? My son is all about music. I heard there is a new show at the City of David called Sound Scapes at the Tower? Is this as good as Light Spectacular at Tower of David. That was amazing!
