I was at a wedding in Chicago last weekend, and had a great time hanging out with friends and seeing a good friend get hitched. The food was good, the dessert table was good, the venue was spectacular, and the gift bags were great after a night of drinking at 2 a.m.
One quibble I had was with the D.J., who played Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" not just once but TWICE even though the bride was a Cubs fan and the groom was a Brewer fan. In addition, I know the groom was a 311 fan, but did there have to be three 311 songs played during the reception? Talk about a dance-floor clearer.
And no Kanye!
Every wedding should play Kanye:
|1.||Convicted killer Martin MacNeill survives jail suicide attempt|
|2.||Kragthorpe: Goalpost gets in way of RSL’s bid for MLS Cup (with video)|
|3.||MLS Cup: Real Salt Lake falls on PKs (with video)|
|4.||College football: Auburn, Missouri on guard in SEC title game|
|5.||49ers get another shot vs. Seahawks|
|6.||Guilt, pain, help and hope — when Mormon missionaries come home early|
|7.||Standout performances bring new life to Nutcracker|
|8.||Much of Utah experiencing winter storm conditions|
|9.||Terrifying Moab BASE jump crash captured by helmet cam|
|10.||‘Fit Mom’ Maria Kang, not yet over self, claims fatties are out to get her|
