I know there are several but I haven't found out which one yet. My sister is getting married and is having her dinner after at the Lone Star Steakhouse. This sounds suspiciously like a place that might have those big bowls or bins of peanuts sitting out. Has anyone been to any of the Lone Star Steakhouses in Las Vegas? I'm waiting to hear from her which one and then I'm going to call.

Well I called and they said they do have peanuts out for people to eat and although they don't throw shells on the floor, the place would be filled with peanut dust. I emailed my sister and told her we can't go and we wouldn't be able to let the kids around them that night due to possible dust on clothes, hair, etc. We'll see what her response is. She thinks I'm completely ridiculous about dd's allergies for the most part and I think she doesn't believe most of what I tell her about it. This ought to be interesting.

I would not allow my children to go to the steak house either.
Do you plan on attending the ceremony? Is there a reason that you would not be able to get a sitter for the night and attend dinner yourself?

A close family member (DH's Dad)of ours got married and the original menu had walnuts on all salads and peanut sauce on appetizers- that was just what we knew of upfront. We had just found out about DD's allergy 1 1/2 mths before the wedding- we told him we would all go to the ceremony but only DH (was in the wedding) would go to the reception due to all the risk (hugging/kissing relatives, all eating nuts, etc) they ended up making the wedding reception nut free (Had DD's own food anyway). We were glad they chose to do this- but I would have not gone to the reception with DD had they not.
I don't blame you for not going- seems they could find another restaurant in a place that big that didn't have peanuts all over! Let us know how it turns out- if it makes you feel any better people think I'm crazy/overboard about DD's allergies too- but hey we aren't talking about a stuffy nose here with nut allergies! You are doing great by keeping your child safe.

Thanks. We would skip the reception rather than leave the kids. We don't live in or near Vegas and don't know anyone there other than my sisters. I don't get the impression any of her friends would be any different in their attitude towards allergies and I wouldn't trust any of them with my kids. I haven't heard back from my sister yet and her email is at work so I don't know if she'll let me know Monday or just wait until we're there (we're all going to California first so there's a few weeks before this event).
