I live in Chicago and have only spent a couple days in St. Pete Beach, where we're getting married at the Tradewinds next year. Our moms are trying to put together a rehearsal dinner nearby -- preferably on Gulf Blvd -- but we don't know the area.
What I do know: I didn't love the Sirata's restaurant, and the Tradewinds' fanciest resataurant is too small and too expensive for our tastes.
I imagine we'll have 50 people there. I'd love your thoughts. Tampa or downtown St. Petersburg, though I'm sure lovely, are just too far from where the guests will be centered.
