Rehearsal Dinner!

The night before the wedding, Mike's dad and step-mom arranged for our rehearsal dinner!  Thing is, we don't quite know when the rehearsal will take place.  It all depends on if the wedding venue is rented that day.  Which, in June, is highly likely.  At any rate, we will all gather together the evening before the wedding for time with friends.  

We intend to invite all out-of-towners, which since we are getting married in a place Mike and I moved to 6 years ago, means about half (if not more) of our wedding invite list!  I like the touch of having out-of-town guests come to the rehearsal dinner.  It shows we appreciate them coming from far away to be close with us. Also I imagine the reception will fly by, and this extra time allows us more quality moments with those guests we rarely get to see!

Mike's dad and step-mom picked a lovely restaurant that Mike and I happen to enjoy very much.  One week last summer we ate there twice, and then followed it up with drinks the next week. You could call it a favorite.
Clyde's is a DC establishment, located in the heart of Gallery Place/China Town.  No, it's not a Chinese restaurant. Clyde's is known as "an updated American saloon where good food and good drink, at good value, with good company, was a good bet." (Taken from their website).  Naturally this seems like the perfect fit for what we are looking for! We reserved a private room for our event so we can get as loud and sappy as we want!

Thank you Barry and Shari for booking a fantastic room for us! We are so excited about the location. It's going to be a great evening!
