Grab a steak taco, a humongous burger, a fajitas platter, or a mixed appetizer along with a yard of beer or signature drinks while watching entertaining videos on the monitors throughout the restaurant and bar. Nightly entertainment at Señor Frog's Las Vegas includes fun contests, shot girls, live music and/or DJs.

Closing DinnerThursday, February 5, 2015 - 5:30 - 8:30 PM
Morton's The Steakhouse
The MCAA Convention closes with a dinner at Morton's The Steakhouse, where we'll induct the newest members of the Masonry Hall of Fame.
Morton's has grown to over 69 restaurants, but the vision is the same today as it was when they opened their first restaurant in Chicago in 1978. Quality. Consistency. Genuine Hospitality.
Since day one, Morton's has used the same suppliers for their aged prime beef and other meat. If it doesn't meet Morton's standards, it doesn't get cut for their steaks. When they say that we offer "The Best Steak... Anywhere," they mean it!
MCAA Members: $175.00
