SO, since our nupts will be downtown, I searched for a place that has this same policy on BYOF. And guess what, mofo's? Mama found one. It's called The Golden Gopher and it's RAD. Peeps have been telling me to try out this bar for a while, so it definitely has the cool factor working for it. We could order in like 6 pizzas and let everyone go nuts ordering drinks at the bar for like an hour or two. This way we'll still be able to have the rehearsal dinner in a rockin' location, only we won't have to go homeless trying to pay for it. Yay! Also, this way the rehearsal dinner will be informal with an emphasis on fun and getting jazzed for the wedding the next day. I want people to mix and mingle and meet each other as opposed to being confined to a dinner table, sitting next to people they already know.
"The Golden Gopher is as comfortable as the corner tap, a luxe hangout that provides an ample selection of top-shelf liquor "to go”, thanks to its still valid 1905 liquor license, issued when Teddy Roosevelt was Commander-in-Chief. Adjacent skyscrapers can be seen from the bar’s striking indoor/outdoor smoking patio.
Situated in the heart of Downtown’s Historic Core, the Golden Gopher is within walking distance of South Park, the Arts, Jewelry, Financial, and Fashion Districts, and close to several major hotels."
And good news on the hotel front...We have a block of rooms reserved at The O Hotel! More to come on that later...
