Attire or other information
The wedding is at 6:00 and will be black tie optional. If you own a tux and want to bust it out, please do! But don't feel the need to go out and rent one, suits are just fine too. Ladies, cocktail attire is perfectly fine, but feel free to wear a long dress as well!
Things to do in the area
If you are looking for a fun place to go out at night, check out the Epicenter downtown! It is located across from the Bobcats arena at the corner of 4th and College Street. There is parking below. The Epicenter has TONS of things to do! There are restaurants like Mortimers, Blackfinn, Enso if you are looking for more upscale, but also Wild Wings Cafe, Jason's Deli, Breuggers Bagels, Moe's, Firehouse subs, Librettos Pizza, and Five Guys if you are looking for something more casual. There is a bowling alley as well as tons of bars and clubs. Suite, Kazba, and Whiskey River are all fun places to go dancing, and Derrick and my personal favorite, Howl at the Moon, is a rowdy piano bar!
