I'm planning a wedding in Joshua Tree, and need a good recommendation for a rehearsal dinner spot. We'd like to keep it casual, and on the cheaper side (weddings are expensive!!!) No golf courses please. I'd love to do it at Pappy and Harriett's but don't want to do the drive since the actual wedding will be a drive to Joshua Tree. Someone suggested Las Consuelas, but we went there and it was a lot of 60 somethings getting drunk and dancing. No offense to anyone, just the vibe we're looking for. Also, the reception is at the Ace hotel, so I'd like to not do it there so I can get people out of the hotel.
No preference on type of food.
