pig roast help

this summer, my wife and i will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. her family lives in alexandria, and we've decided to have a celebratory bash.

now the party might well run to 50 people; and idea thats come up is to find a rural spot say within a couple of hours of dc that will roast a whole pig and generally take care of the catering. any thoughts?

also, if the above idea isn't feasible, any ideas around for a stately mansion with decent grounds etc near alexandria that we could rent for the evening?

cheers and thanks in advance

  1. Might want to email these people, event planners in the area. Have dealt w/ them a couple times and their pretty resourceful. Might have some suggestions for you. Not sure of any places in/outside the area that would do that all in one.

    1. Arlington County has a historic park with stately home available for rent - often the site of weddings, etc.

      In addition, if you'd consider it, maybe we could arrange a Chowhound meal at Myanmar. You can send me a PM.

      1. Check out Smokey Glen, they are in MD but will do a pig roast for you
