Wedding crashers

Not invited to the Royal Wedding? Me either.

But what makes any party, even ones you'll never-in-hell attend, much more fun? How about a tall glass of punchy Wedding Bliss ($6) from Best of British Pub on International Drive?

Sure, the world has its priorities all out of whack with this Royal Wedding brouhaha, but you can take a seat at the bar as a disinterested spectator, dig into a pile of Windsor Shepherd's Pie and rest assured your belly will be full of British breakfast and champagne as you half-heartedly toast to two people you'll never meet.

Best of British will start the festivities at 9 a.m. with the aforementioned champagne breakfast featuring the traditional English brunch featured in this month's special issue of BITE. The pub will televise the wedding coverage all day (of course) with specials on its British fare like Kensington Fish & Chips and Balmoral Bangers & Mash.

At 8 p.m., the party really gets started with a wedding reception fit for a future king, featuring the stirring British sounds of Mid-Life Crisis, featuring Johnny "Guitar" Crippen from British band Dr. Feelgood. Slurp down a few signature cocktails like the Honeymoon Delight ($6) and Blue Sapphire ($6), or pound a few Kiss Me Kate ($5) shots for good measure.

Happy wedding day, William, I had a Teen Bop poster of you on my closet when we were 12. I still love you.

Best of British Pub, 8324 International Drive, Orlando, 407-264-9189
