Private Event Venue Recommendation

Does Felt do that? That place is young, a bit upscale...hip..maybe too young? Events always look cool there (although I only see pictures friends post)

need advice on affordable New England wedding venues

Off season anywhere is the best idea. Try golf resorts in the Winter, or if you are south, hotels on the cape in Winter or Late fall (after foliage) We got Married at Killington in June, it was dead but we had the hotel to ourselves and we were catered to hand and foot. The most expensive thing was our giant tent!! We had open bar, beer, wine, tent, live band, and a barbeque dinner..all for a whopping 8 grand!!! so yes, you can do it cheaper if you are willing to do an off-season thing.

Okay, there used to be a little dive in Clinton to buy Fried seafood? I want some fried seafood in this area, but don't know of any "fish shacks" or little diners offering such items? I know this is not healthy but I have to do it a couple times this summer.

Lobster Risotto
