Feast: Rehearsal Dinner at UpStairs on the Square

October 19, 2013


Last Friday, my then almost-husband and I shared a fantastic rehearsal dinner with our family at UpStairs on the Square, a Harvard Square institution for over 30 years and the place where my parents first met my now actual-husband. UpStairs had set up the Soiree Room beautifully, everything they served was delicious, and the staff was extremely helpful and generally fantastic. The woman who helped us plan, Caroline Koelker, was a real pro. We had an amazing time and we were looking forward to going back for years to come.

Until yesterday, when I learned that Upstairs on the Square’s landlord has decided to sell the building, and that they will close in just a few months – after New Years. Heartbreaking! Now instead of showing our future kids the place where we had our rehearsal dinner, we’ll have to say “hey kids, see that dive bar?” or more probably “hey kids, see that Banana Republic?”

I wish the gracious owners and fantastic party throwers, Mary-Catherine Deibel and Deborah Hughes, all the best, and I really hope they make a go of it at another location. Thank you both, as well as Caroline and everyone on staff at our rehearsal dinner, for a beautiful event. You will be missed!

    Isn’t this “Honeymoon” from the Blog a little too long?
