Rehearsal Dinner Venue - Central MA
Any suggestions on where my fiancee and I could have our wedding rehearsal dinner somewhere between Worcester and Framingham, including surrounding towns? A little background: our ceremony is in Framingham, our reception is in Bolton, and the wedding party will be staying on site at the reception site. We'd be looking for anywhere between Worcester and Framingham, preferably a place that's pretty easy to get to from 495, since the bridal party are all out-of-towners.
We originally were looking at The People's Kitchen in Worcester (and still may be), but during two visits there, we were overwhelmed by the cigar smell from the Cigar Masters downstairs. My fiancee and I LOVE Stone's Public House, but are concerned about the lack of updates to their small banquet area upstairs. We recently tried The Fireplace Room, on site at our wedding venue, but found their prices out of our range.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
