Easter Italiano- Bocce at Arnoldi's

We've been talking about playing Bocce for weeks now.  What better time to join the Italianos than Easter for a game of Bocce and some Chianti!

Important note- the courts are first come first serve and there's only 2, so no guarantees we'll get one.  But AnaMaria and I are getting there before they open at 5 to stake out a spot.

Our reservation is only for 10 (8 is a better number for playing), so only RSVP "Yes" if you can actually make it!

How do you play Bocce? http://www.wikihow.com/Play-Bocce-Ball

Bring cash in small bills please, makes it easier to split the check (see "how we split the bill" below)

Thanks, looking forward to it! :)

 How we split the bill:

1. The bill goes around the table and we each claim our items by legibly writing our name next to each one. If four of us split a bottle of wine, appetizer or something then they'll be four names next to it.
2. We each add up our total, multiply it by 1.3 (for tax & tip), and add that total in cash to the bill fold.
3. Once it gets back around to the event host she will double check it and sort out change back from the pile if needed.

    Hi ladies! Truly looking forward to meeting you all. Since I've never been to a meet up before, where shall I meet everyone at the restaurant? Designated area? ;)

      Hi Brittany, looking forward to meeting you too. Congrats on joining meetup. I'm such a fan because I've made so many awesome friends through meetup. And this really is a nice and fun group of women! So Arnoldi's is not very big. We will be on the back patio, next to the Bocce courts. There are only two courts so it should be easy to see us!

    Hey there...can't go. And I see there's a big waiting list. Glad someone can take my place.Have fun girls. My Easter thing I'm doing with Dylan conflicts with the time. See you at the next one.

    Hey Bocce players- we have a waiting list so if you can't make it April 20 please change your RSVP to "no". If you are on the waitlist you'll be automatically moved to "yes" if a spot opens. If you are moved up to "yes" but can no longer make it PLEASE change your RSVP to "no" so the next person on the wait list gets the spot. Grazie mille!

    This sounds like so much fun!
    Is this like sit at a table and do dinner and drinks or more stand around and graze while playing?

    • Cindy

      Hi Kristine! I've eaten on the patio but never played Bocci. I'm assuming we'll have to continuously use the court or lose it. So likely a mix of playing and eating. The link above says Bocci is best with 2, 4 or 8 players, so hopefully we'll always have at least one person rotated out and at the table. Courts are first come first serve, so if we don't get one it will just be dinner.
