Rehearsal dinner ideas in Richmond, VA?

Abby0105 | Jul 13, 2010 06:19 AM

Hi there!

I'm stuck! My husband and I are trying to plan a rehearsal dinner for my sister. We're foodies, she and the rest of the family are not. In fact, my sister specifically requested we stay away from "that fancy weird food that you like."

We'll have about 25 adults and 4 kids (ages 2-10). Since the wedding itself will have a backyard feel and serve barbecue, we want to keep a very casual feel with the rehearsal dinner. We'll be in the east end of Henrico County for the rehearsal, and my family lives in Mechanicsville, so bonus points if we can stay on that end of the city. We can venture to other parts of the city, though my mother has a strange aversion to anything south of the river.

So far I've found this an impossible puzzle to solve: where can we have a private room for 30 people that my sister will find acceptable?? Any help is appreciated!

Thanks for any ideas you can toss my way!
