Today is the longest day of the year. Lets celebrate daylight with a spectacular tasting of Southern Italian food from Veneticus' acclaimed chef, who will cook for us his best Sicilian recipes.


We have agreed a fabulous, unheard of, special LEC price of £13 each, which will include an all evening buffet food consisting of several mouthwatering antipasti, pasta and pizza dishes and main courses, including vegetarian options. Not full yet? Delicious tropical fruits on skewers will be served at the end as well as a Sicilian pastries tasting and.. hear, hear.. a scoop of the most sensational to-die-for ice cream in London.

Insider tip: their pistacchio ice cream is creamy and light and just.. delightful


The £13 entry includes not only self-service buffet (yes, you can top up, there will be plenty of food ) but also an alcoholic drink of your choice from the bar!!

To reserve your entry ticket today, please send payment via Paypal to [masked]

For the die-hard we could then go on to a club and wait for the sunrise (a very early 4.43 am) on one of the beautiful spots on the river in central London facing east..

So bring a warm jacket to wear on top of your Sicilian party dress.

Dress code: SICILIAN

If you dont know what Sicilian means, your faithful correspondent Penny Lane, can provide some tips:

MEN: Mafia hat (coppola), cigars, moustaches (real is better than fake.. you have one month notice after all!).. trousers with bracers, striped shirts.

MUST have: sunglasses and shiny leather shoes.

If you feel audacious: a sleeveless white camisole with chest hair coming out from the top

(if you are Swedish, you can paint black fake hair on your chest).

 

Women: total black lace look, a touch provocative but innocent (we are Catholics after all)

A MUST: sunglasses, fake black mole, stockings with suspenders (really?), red killer lipstick and..

if you feel audacious: a moustache (yes women too :-)..

Want the full look? Sip only red wine, a limoncello or martini.. no beer :-)

Are you ready to party? Let's celebrate the arrival of summer, daylight and the dolce Southern life with our beautifully diverse London European Club..

    Well done to Oscar and his buddies, had more of that food the following day, by means of a packed lunch box.
    Penny, great periodic inter-connecting, more 'craic' in the pipeline in the next episode.
    Slainte, ciao

    Thanks Penny for all your efforts to organise such a wonderful party. I really enjoyed myself. I didn't even eat or drink for first hour and a half I was so enjoying talking to people. And the food was great when I finally tasted it! And Lotta's Aperol was especially good :-)

  • Daniela Di G.

    Big thanks to Dennis for making me laugh with his "wandering" moustache.. nice efforts also from Liamino cum coppola and Marcello, who naturally looks so Sicilian :-) Lotta was the blondest Sicilian ever seen at a Sicilian party.. not to mention the lovely looks of Anna ("Turecka) and Ana.. I had a rewarding conversation with Sean&Sean (you alays risk to just talk the general stuff at big parties) but this exchange was very enjoyable.. to be continued, Seans! Last but not least, Oscar, the owner, went out of his way.. special thanks for the extra water melons and pineapple who were fresh and summery at the end of the dinner! Please post your pictures.. I've seen very interesting, artistic or plain funny ones! THANXX guys for a lovely time

    Hi guys, I am receiving hundred emails.. NO, you can NOT pay at the Meetup. You need to send the payment via Paypal to penny [masked]. Latest time to purchase your ticket is tomorrow at 4PM. Thanks :-)

    2 · June 21, 2013

    • Daniela Di G.

      Yes, I am short of money as MANY paid just £12.36.. Anyway, it will be GREAT! xx

      June 22, 2013

    • Biliana A.

      Ouch - i just saw your comment about being short of money. £12.36 sounds like £13 - Paypal's fee for goods and services transactions. I admit I also ticked that option (the other option was to pay a friend!). The transactions can be reversed by you and Paypalvwill regund the free; then we can all pay again, this time as friends payments. Or we bring £0.64 tonight to make up the difference! You shouldnt be out of pocket here!!! And next time maybe specifying the paypal option will help! I didnt think about it at all :-(

    I am doing the walking marathon and I don't think I'd be able to make it in time for the party.

    June 12, 2013

    • Ana

      Who cares about being on time for the party, Maja!! As soon as you come! It's Italian, so being late is fashionable, and according to Penny, will be awake until the sunrise. See you on Saturday!! :D

      June 20, 2013

    • Maja

      Yes I will come fashionably late with my hiking boots and rucksack but wearing lace underwear which would of course be extremely comfortable during the hiking marathon :-)

    Not sure I know how to pay you as paypal is usually automatic from these invites ...but not this time! Can I pay you on the day please? or can the automatic paypal system be added to the invite?

    June 17, 2013

    • Daniela Di G.

      Just go to your Paypal -> send payment, and use my email address to send the £13. Payment on the day is not possible, as I have to pay owner on Friday
