  • 09:27 Dear wedding caterers: when I request vegan accomodations for my guests, please stop sending me meat-only menus. *I* can't eat them!
  • 17:59 OK, after a lot of fuss, I found the perfect reception venue. It totally wowed me, and it's two blocks from my house.

Two blocks from your house? That sounds like it would be Sokol Club (where Kathy and I had our reception). Or did you find somewhere else that's two blocks from your house?

Not Sokol! It's not IBEW or the incoming hotel either.

It's actually a film studio right behind the railroad tracks. Really really gorgeous setup inside, with different areas for a bar/lounge area, the ballroom/dining hall, a cafe sort of area, a photo booth, a large room to serve as the bridal party room, two kitchens...

Plus, they are only the space; I choose my own alcohol (they do have a license, but I provide the booze.. which means I can obtain it by attrition over the course of this year), I choose the caterer (yay, I can choose someone who understand what Vegan means!), etc etc etc.

AND! The setup is such that I can create a kids' area inside for kids to have a play area, and set up a gaming area for anyone who wants to play games...

Oh, and did I mention that I get the space for six hours?

Here's something to note for you though: there are surround sound speakers inside, but I am not allowed to hook up a DJ rig to them (someone blew out their speakers in the past). I am allowed to hook up a computer to them, so I'm going to ask if it's OK to have a DJ work via the computer. I'll get DJ software for my laptop in that case and have it all done through that. This means I can also have special DJ time slots for dancing, and just run iTunes for dinner.
