Ideas for 2 gatherings in City Ave area?
We are looking for locations in the City Ave area during a wedding weekend. The wedding site has already been selected (in Fairmount Park), but we're trying to find some additional venues to round out the weekend. Any ideas would be a big help!
1) As guests start arriving in town, we'd like to offer them restaurant suggestions for dinner. Factors we're taking into consideration: convenience from hotels on City Avenue, casual, easy on the wallet, low-stress parking and space to seat whoever arrives without a wait.
2) As the guests depart, we'd like to host a farewell breakfast. Here, we're looking for a space that could provide beverages but would allow us to bring our own food (we are bagel snobs and also have developed high standards for our coffee cakes!). Any ideas for community spaces, galleries, or other venues that could accomodate 75 guests and allow easy access to City Ave and the expressway?
We've been mentally taking inventory of what we know in the City Ave area, but some fresh ideas would be helpful! Thanks for any that come our way!
