Looks like we've chosen the venue.  If all goes well, we'll be having our formal dinner at The Dandelion in the ritzy Rittenhouse Square district of Philadelphia.

The building is actually two very elegant turn of the century townhomes converted into a restaurant!  The inside is really lovely!  And the mascot is a lion dressed as an Edwardian dandy, so really we had to have it here.

These two seemingly separate townhomes are the restaurant!

You can't miss it...it's got the mascot on the lantern!

If you go in the corner door, walk through the bar to the hostess desk in the next building (or just use the other door). This is the waiting area:

The "dog" dining room features a very cool bar at the end and has portraits of dogs everywhere:

As you can see, no matter where we are seated, it's beautiful!
