When Michael and Melissa Peters began planning their wedding, they knew that when the reception was over, they wouldn't be ready for the night to end. So after the last dance, instead of sending their guests off to the hotel, the Peters kept the party going with a visit from their favorite Baltimore food truck. The couple, who live in Canton, held their reception at the American Visionary Art Museum . As that celebration was winding down, the Kooper's Chowhound food truck pulled up to the museum's courtyard, where guests continued the party as they ate burgers served right off the grill.

In your report on Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's hosting campaign contributors in the state's skybox at the Washington Redskins' stadium, I got the impression that this was real news when in fact it's not. In the past The Sun has reported that former Mayor Sheila ("I'll take my pension and run") Dixon, current Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Gov. Martin O'Malley also have used state skyboxes to grease the palms of their political supporters ("Brown's skybox guests and their affiliates donated $20K to campaign," Feb. 1)

My fiancé Keith and I are going to a wedding in Colorado in February. I have never been to an out-of-town wedding and am pretty excited about the location. The future groom and bride have been very thorough with arrangements for their guests. I was a little nervous about all the details and figuring out where to stay and when to fly in, but they have been really on top of things.  This reminded me that even though a lot of guests for our own wedding live in town, we do have a few coming from other places as well.

I didn't realize people still handed out favors at weddings until this year. Granted, I hadn't been to (or in) many weddings before, but I was still surprised to see gifts waiting for us at the door, even after we had been fed, boozed up, photographed and danced with. Being a guest is the best role at a wedding -- you have none of the fiscal or planning responsibilities, and yet reap all of the rewards. As mentioned, I was pretty new to weddings until this year, and really thought that I'd only walk away from them with a full belly and an exasperated liver.

In the highly competitive news business in this ultra-political town, a constant battle goes on among reporters to obtain interviews with the most knowledgeable governmental insiders from the White House to Congress. This is particularly so among television anchors vying to bag superstars for their shows. The acquisition of such targets is called a "get," as the word clearly conveys. The high-powered networks employ aggressive off-air staffers to identify, locate, cajole and besiege the brightest lights in the political firmament to appear on their "air" in the never-ending quest for the highest viewer ratings.

Wedding etiquette doesn't just involve knowing which fork to use when eating your starter salad -- it's way more than that. It could involve thank-you notes, destination weddings and deciding who pays that hefty reception bill. We asked Lizzie Post of the Emily Post Institute (emilypost.com) and co-author, with her sister Anna, of "Emily Post Wedding Etiquette, 6th Edition," about how to approach those awkward situations that may arise when planning your wedding. If it's a destination wedding, is the couple responsible to pay for at least part of the expenses of guests?

Whether it was a rooftop deck party equipped with a DJ and an elaborate brunch theme or a hotel hall transformed into a swanky viewing room, those lucky enough to have downtown digs along the Grand Prix race track entertained friends and family with private, upscale parties. Forget the metal bleachers at the track. These parties provided breathtaking views, catered treats and offered endless libations.
