Thanks you all for all the recommendations!
We will be staying somewhere around Draper (disclaimer: I didn't make the reservation. If I did then then I would stay alot close to the city).
Let's just say I am one of those that will drive and seek out good food. So please keep the recommendations coming.

Recommendations for breakfast/brunch, Happy Hr and dinner would be great. We will be eating lunch on the slopes.
Thank you for your help in advance.

Moist and Low Fat Brownies...

I have to share my little success story. I have been craving brownies for days! I finally bought a box of Pillsbury brownies mix 2 days ago. Looking around my kitchen there were two very overly rip bananas I thought.. hmm... I wonder. The Pillsbury calls for 1/4 cup of oil and I substituted the oil with the 2 mashed up bananas.
Baked the brownies according to the directions on the box and the result was incredible! Super moist and chewy. Best of all its LOW FAT! Give it a try for ya'll Brownies Addict.
It has a very slight hint of bananas...

Any good restaurants in Cancun?

It seems if it is a "party" destination good food/restaurant are practically non-existence. Are there any good restaurants anyone can recommend in Cancun? Please no exports from the US. :)
