We attended a tasting at Bank Street Events to sample the food before we finalize the wedding package. The place was set up in style with nice tablecloths and place settings and votive candles on the tables. I’m not sure these items are in our budgeted wedding package, though, so let’s consider it B.Y.O.C.P.S. (Bring Your Own Candles and Place Settings). There were six or seven other couples there for the tasting and fortunately we all sat at our own tables with our respective partners. I was worried that all of the couples would be at the same table for forced socialization. Whip out the fake smiles and talk about how excited you are about the big day, inserting random squeals of delight into the conversation. I’m happy, but come on.
The place is two stories so I was thinking Sebastien and I could swing down from the second floor to greet our guests on our wedding night. It could be like what they do in the new Spider Man show on Broadway, minus the accidental deaths and all.
Here are some other things I decided I wanted at the wedding:
Ironically insincere smiles. We somehow got on the subject over dinner that night. Practice yours now.
Corn fritters, although I’m not sure Bank Street’s idea of corn fritters is the same thing as mine. It’s a straightforward recipe: deep-fried balls of sweet corn. Fattening and delicious. However, the chefs at Bank Street seem to think that corn fritters are made with some fancy pants truffles — a food product I have never quite understood because it could be either a mushroom or a cooking oil or a chocolate treat — dipped in some funky sauce that increases the wedding package price by $10/person. Don’t worry though, I promise to have this worked out before the wedding. There will be corn fritters or there will be blood.
The theme song to Twin Peaks because it fits so well with the atmosphere of the place. And because the show is amazing. I would give anything to settle in Twin Peaks once Sebastien and I are married. Sadly, the town does not exist.
Let me know what you would like at the wedding.
