PATERSON - All eyes will be on Prince William and his bride Kate Middleton this Friday as they exchange vows in front of millions around the world. Liverpool native Michael Symonds can't attend the royal wedding in London, so he has decided to hold a party in New Jersey.

In honor of Friday's event, Symonds is throwing a big bash on Sunday at Bonfire Restaurant in Paterson to benefit the Eastside Neighborhood Association.

The room where the party is set to be held will be filled with British flags and memorabilia. Traditional British food will also be on the menu.

Tickets for the party are $50, and can be purchasedby calling Richard Walter at (973)345-7503.
