What are your plans for the rehearsal/dinner? We would like to do it the Friday night before our wedding due to out of town guests/wedding party guests. I really wanted something casual (and inexpensive) --like pizza and beer. We have a great local restaurant that also serves speciality microbrews with a party room, BUT they do not take reservations for Friday or Saturday nights. WtF? They refused my 40 guaranteed guests.
I don't know what we will do now, there are not a lot of non-chain restaurant choices in our city. Blah.
