  2. Pizza party: A pizza party is a fun and informal way to celebrate before the big day. You can order a variety of pizzas or have a DIY pizza bar where guests can customize their own pizza.

  3. Ethnic cuisine: Consider a cuisine that represents your heritage or that you and your partner love, such as Mexican, Italian, or Asian. This is a great way to add some cultural flair to your rehearsal dinner.

  4. Food trucks: Food trucks can be a fun and unique way to provide dinner for your guests. You can have a variety of food trucks parked at your venue, or have a single truck provide a selection of dishes.

  5. Brunch: If your rehearsal dinner is in the morning or early afternoon, consider having a brunch theme with classic brunch dishes such as waffles, pancakes, and omelets, along with mimosas and other breakfast cocktails.

Attached here we had chicken lollipops at 1908 Uptown for the last rehearsal dinner!

Chicken lollipops are a popular appetizer that typically consist of chicken wings or drumettes that have been frenched and turned into a lollipop-like shape. Frenched means that the meat has been pushed down to create a handle, exposing the bone and creating a round, lollipop shape. They are often seasoned and coated in a flavorful mixture, such as garlic, ginger, soy sauce, or chili flakes, before being baked or fried to perfection. Chicken lollipops can be served as a delicious and fun finger food at parties, barbecues, or any casual gathering. They are also a popular menu item at restaurants, and can be found on the appetizer menu at many Asian, Indian, and American restaurants.

The exact origin of chicken lollipops is not clear, but they are believed to have originated in the United States in the 1960s or 1970s. Some sources suggest that they were created by a restaurant chef who wanted to use up leftover chicken wings by turning them into a fun and creative appetizer. Others suggest that chicken lollipops were inspired by Indian or Chinese cuisine, where similar techniques are used to create meat dishes with a handle or bone for easy eating. Today, chicken lollipops are popular around the world and can be found on the menus of many restaurants, food trucks, and caterers.

Why would we pair chicken lollipops with champagne Pairing chicken lollipops with champagne can create an interesting flavor contrast and enhance the overall dining experience. Chicken lollipops are often seasoned with bold and flavorful spices such as garlic, paprika, or cayenne pepper, which can create a rich and savory taste. The effervescence and acidity of champagne can help to cleanse the palate between bites of the rich and flavorful chicken lollipops. Additionally, the crispness and lightness of the champagne can provide a refreshing complement to the bold and hearty flavors of the chicken lollipops. Overall, the combination of chicken lollipops and champagne can create a delicious and memorable dining experience for guests.

By considering these elements, you can plan a rehearsal dinner that will be a memorable and enjoyable event for everyone involved.
