    How exciting Lisa! Love that you picked the venue for the rehearsal dinner – and I love, love, love those creamy chunky black beans – when they are on the menu I always get them.

      They are really exceptional!

    One more thing to check off your list! Woo-hoo! Too bad you couldn’t have the rental room from the Firehouse with the food from the Casa – THAT would have been pretty amazing! I’m sure you and your guests are all going to have a great time at the rehearsal dinner 🙂

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yes! One more thing to cross off.

    Yay – and YUM! I’m so starving now!

    Hooray for having such a big decision taken care of – always good to have things logged off the list!!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yes! It feels good to get it done.

    Oh wow, I’m adding that restaurant to my list of places to try right away!!

    I live right around the corner from Firehouse but I don’t go often – I took my parents once and it was disappointing. My mom’s pasta was so salty she sent it back (and they never followed up to see if she wanted to order anything else – I wound up having to feed her leftovers at home), and my dad’s pizza was soggy like you describe. I LOVE the space and since it’s close it’s still on my go-to list, but I generally stick to appetizers and drinks. I think I will add salad and dessert but still avoid the main courses!

      I guess it’s nice to hear that our experience wasn’t just us. I wish they’d get the small things with the food fixed because it would be a really great place if they did!
