It is time for spring and summer wedding – - and rehearsal dinners too!

Spring has finally come and with it a host of brides making plans for their upcoming weddings.  With so much to do, planning the rehearsal dinner may have fallen to the back burner.  Of course, the dress and the location for the wedding are the top two on any bride’s to-do list.  Besides, the groom’s family is supposed to take care of the rehearsal dinner, right?  In reality, most brides are not going to leave something so important to the groom or his family.  She is going to have some say in the planning and the venue.  With so much stress placed on both the bride and the groom, it is amazing how a wedding ever comes off without a hitch.  Fortunately, most of them do and the bride and groom live happily ever after.

We are happy to tell you that we can take one of the more stressful portions off your bridal plate – - the rehearsal dinner.  If you were having a polish wedding, it would make sense that you would want one of the Polish Restaurants Chicago to host your rehearsal dinner.  With so many Chicago Restaurants to choose from, you may wonder why choose Olivia’s Taste Restaurant for your rehearsal dinner.  Here are some of the top reasons:

Food and Music on Valentine’s Day

Though I wanted heart-shaped cakes on Valentine’s Day, we ended up having Bicol Express then. But I still didn’t miss the more enjoyable stuff my immediate friends and I seized yesterday, the bunch of foods and of course, music — videoke, we had.

Music fun was  not actually part of the first plan to do on Valentine’s Day. But when one of our friends keep n bobbing his head while his head phones on and we found him enjoying his moment, we just then joined with him and made some noise at home. Other than music, we also watched a movie and do some chit chats as well.

Bicol Express for Valentine’s Day 2014

Since I can’t go out for dinner when my colleagues planned one for Valentine’s day, they then just ended up cooking at home and we then dine together. But because of the very limited time to prepare for the Heart’s Day, they decided to prepare Bicol Express.

Bicol Express(image not mine — just a presentation of Bicol Express)

I personally do not know how they prepared the really spicy and very inviting Bicol Express. But one thing I was sure of, it was really sumptuous and drooling to look at.

Pardon me for having missed taking even one picture of the Bicol Express my friends prepared. But the image above is somehow the same to what they had at home.
