I'm a frequent lurker on this board - always appreciate all of your thoughtful reviews and opinions!! I'm planning a wedding in October in Ipswich and our guests will be staying in Newburyport (wanted to give them a real New England experience since most are from out of town and Salem is BOOKED in October). I'm looking for recommendations for a rehearsal dinner for about 60 people and also for brunch for about 20 in the general vicinity of Newburyport. It would be great to be right in Newburyport, but for the right place I would definitely leave town... For dinner I am thinking upscale New England fare. Any help is appreciated!!
