dinner at Via Veneto Italian ristorante

dear friends—

our weeknight dinner this month will be at Via Veneto, 6340 n Lincoln, Chicago, [masked], http://viavenetochicago.com/ .  reservation will be under the name of Rick Malkowski, in case you can't find us, or call my cell phone at [masked].  There is a map in the website. please let me know if you plan to come.

to make things run more smoothly, I strongly recommend that you have enough cash to pay the bill:  some restaurants don't like splitting up credit card charges.

If you have a coupon you’d like to use at this or any other dinner, please check with me first

hope to see you there and buon appetito,

Rick


interesting factette—the Via Veneto (more properly the Via Vittorio Veneto) is a famous (and expensive) shopping  street in Rome featured in Fellini’s 1960 film La Dolce Vita .  the street is named after the last battle on the nightmarish Italian front in the First World War, resulting in the rout and demise of the Austro-Hungarian army, which outlasted the Austro-Hungarian state by a few weeks.  It was pretty much the only Italian victory in the war.

    I’m sorry for the late note but I can’t come tomorrow due to the change in my schedule. I hope to join you for the dinner in December.

      Via Veneto is way on the north side--you might want to wait till we have a dinner somewhere closer. i'm hoping to have one at the Shoreline Brewpub in Michigan City sometime this fall or winter
