I'm so excited to be going to Atera this Friday for my birthday dinner, and after reading through the other Atera threads I just have 2 questions.
I'm planning to wear a sweater dress and nice heels, but I was not sure what the appropriate dress would be for my husband? Should he wear a suit, just dress pants and a button down with a tie, dress pants and a button down with no tie? I just don't want him to feel out of place if everybody or nobody else is wearing a jacket.
I am a little confused about the wine/drink pairings (I think I've seen some mention of certain courses coming with a beer or sake instead of wine). We're not sure if we want to pay the $105 for pairings, but I also wasn't sure how it works since there are so many courses. Do they give you one drink to pair with a couple of courses? Last year we did a beer pairing at EMP and it was amazing. I think we may just ask for beer and/or wine recommendations and get a couple of glasses rather than doing the full pairing this time, but I'd love to hear feedback from people who have enjoyed their meal with or without the pairing.
