" La Quiete Dopo La Tempesta"..odo gli augelli far festa..( Giacomo Leopardi)

  • October 12, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Yes we are back  "lovers"!!!!!

 It is going to be a more intimate, personal, reviling, story telling and friends making evening, while as always, we will prepare our incredible meals. One super long table inside and may be we can share some of our experiences inside and outside the Meetup world.

I might have a surprise for this evening if UPS can make some kind of a miracle.......we will see.

There is a cost of $ 20.00. I will provide everything, from the food to pots, pans, tables, chairs, flatware, plates, table linens, utensils………..bla,bla…….and everybody brings a bottle of an Italian wine and a glass. Please, as usual, help me clean up. The menu is

Eggplant Baskets with tomato sauce, smoked Gouda, Parmigiano and fresh basil.

Home made pizza in a new pizza oven, featuring, among many different ones ( even 23) the " Mimi" and Chocolate pizza.

The Meetup is open to 22 people and the location is my home in Lafayette. I will email the attendees the address later. We are starting earlier this time, 6 pm.

    There is something genuine and intimate that happens when people come together and share in the preparation (and clean up) of a grand meal...

    Excellent evening with wine and fresh pizza (or in my case calzone)! As my second "lovers" event, this a was much less frenetic than the last (fava bean) but more enjoyable to me. Thank you, Valerio!

    Soooo hope I can come to the next one. Oh and everyone ~ I'm thinking about having a big birthday party end of December. I've really earned one this year with having to move for the fifth time since arriving in spring time (due to floods this time) and everything else that's happened ~ will spare you the details. You're all invited so stay tuned!

    Sorry to cancel so late but I've come down with a bad cold that I don't want to share with you all. I'm really bummed that I'm going to miss this and hope they'll be another one like it soon.

    Yeap!!!!! Someone up there loves me.
    I got my new pizza oven from UPS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! we are going to make a lot of different pizze. Lots, lots. Including the world famous "Mimi" one and the "chocolate pizza". I already tested the oven and it is great!!!!! What I wouldn't do for my " Lovers". We also are going to make Eggplant Baskets with tomato sauce and smoked Gouda inside. Kind of minidifferentgreat alla Parmigiana.
    Ops, by the way, the UPS delivery person name was SSSamanthaa.

    Once again I received the first notice of this after it is full. I wonder why this is so? I have plans for Saturday by now. So gosh, sure would like to know how to change this so I can be notified earlier. Any ideas anyone?

    The Quiet After The Storm - how very appropriate Valerio! In this hectic world we all need to slow down, smell the roses, drink the wine and taste the great Italian food. The Giacomo Leopardi poem was right on the money!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
