Rehearsal dinner in downtown Portland, August

PDXNaomi | Apr 17, 2006 05:22 PM

With great trepidation, I am charged with organizing same for an extremely diverse and large crowd in August.
The wedding itself will be outdoors, evening, formal, sitdown dinner.
Prerequisite: DOWNTOWN Portland, as out of town guests will be staying there & don't want to schlep. So I have been ordered. Includes several elderly people with mobility issues, so schlep means not even to the Pearl.
Number: 25-30.
Food style: Preference is Italian/Mediterranean (but not Mideast as the older relatives won't like that. Go figure.)
Thoughts? Even though it's not Italian, I was thinking Red Star because I know it has a larger room and does a good job with groups.
Any idea whether Mama Mia's has a big room?
Heathman seems way too formal for a rehearsal. I will file for divorce before I do it at a chain hotel, if you get my drift.
Thanks for recommendations.
