Rio Cibolo or Pat O’Brien’s? — Please Respond ASAP

Based on the “Farewell Reunion” Banquet Survey results, Rio Cibolo Ranch (1) and Pat O’Brien’s (2) were the most popular choices.

After some additional investigation, we’ve determined per person costs would be:

  • Rio Cibolo Ranch – $100 per person (includes coach transportation to / from hotel, food, band & entertainment)
  • Pat O’Brien’s – $65 to $70 per person (includes food & band – a 10 minute / 0.5 mile walk from hotel) 

While Rio Cibolo Ranch was the first survey choice, there is concern that some members may be unwilling to spend $100 per person.

To help you make your decision, the tentative reunion schedule is as follows:

Tuesday – 5/16

  • Registration / welcome 
  • Renew old friendships & make new ones
  • 5:30 to 7:30pm – evening Embassy Suites reception

Wednesday – 5/17

  • Continue renewing old friendships & making new ones
  • Do some San Antonio sight seeing
  • 4:00 to 5:00pm – business meeting at the hotel
  • 5:30 to 7:30pm – evening Embassy Suites reception

Thursday – 5/18

  • Continue renewing old friendships & making new ones
  • Do some San Antonio sight seeing
  • 5:30 to ?pm – reunion banquet (location TBD)

So… which venue do we choose for the “banquet”?  Please let us know ASAP as we have to reserve the vendor now to ensure their availability.

Thanks for your help!

    The ranch was great last time . If you are balking at the small extra cost then why go at all !

    Looks like greater value. Rio Cibolo is rated significantly higher than O'Brien's. More expensive does not always equal better, nor does less expensive equal value for th3e money spent.

    I could go for either venue but do understand that $100 per person might be a bit pricy for some individuals.

    Either is good with me. I've heard the Ranch experience years ago was very good so I went with it.

    WE had a lot of fun there before and the facilities lend itself to more activities and leisure. The cost does not seem that prohibitive.

    Pat O'briens is New Orleans style and we are in Texas. Doesn't make sense for final reunion.
