The bulk of our budget is going into the reception.....so splurging the night before is not really an option. Truthfully, shut down Taylor's Automatic Refresher for a night, and I'd be down with that.
American or Asian food preferred, but not required. The more relaxed (but not a bar scene) the better. I'm not going to be picky, since Napa is dominated by high end New American or French. The crowd is primarily thirty-somethings who are modest in their taste, but know what good food should taste like.
20 -25 guests total.
I've got a couple of months left to go. Thanks for any suggestions.
