Dear PoP – Outdoor Wedding Ideas?

DSCN0394, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

“Dear PoP,

My partner and I are looking for a good DC spot to host our wedding reception. We’d like a place that can seat about 325 people (with room for dancing) and is not fancy. Something like a YMCA, a high school, or a community center could be perfect, as long as it has a really large open space. Have you run across anything like that in your explorations of our city?”

Hmm, I’m thinking a wedding at Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park could be pretty awesome. Anyone know if that is possible? If you are looking for indoors you might want to check with the folks at EL Haynes Charter School. They have a nice new gymnasium. Anyone else have any good “not fancy” wedding spot suggestions for somewhere in DC?
