Ciao a Tutti!
Here is a very quick Il Tavolo Italiano update!
1. Social Meet-ups
a. Il Tavolo Italian needs you:
i. First I need your input! Many of you thank me regularly for this group and I greatly appreciate your continual kind words but in reality we are what we are because of us and not because of me. I can’t possibly guide this group without your input. We want to do what “we” as in all of us are interested in doing (as much as is practical and possible) so your opinion counts. If you would, please go to http://www.meetup.com/The-Charleston-Italian-Language-Meetup/polls/ and vote on what type of social events you would like to see us have. And while you are there vote on the other polls as well. Your opinion really has shaped this group; I can’t do that alone, so please, do me a favor and vote! “Ti prego” I will only be leaving the polls up for one more week. You participation would be greatly appreciated.
ii. We still need just a few homes and hosts that would like to host one of our social meet-ups during the summer season if we want to have some home based gatherings during the summer months. A couple of people have expressed a potential interest but we still need help. If you ask any of our previous hosts you will find they will all agree on one thing. We have a wonderful group of people to have over so if you would like to host an event this summer, please contact me. It would help us tremendously. The open weekends are the weekends of June 23rd, July 14th, July 28th and August 18th. Grazie!
b. This Sunday is our Tiramisu making workshop that also includes a family style Italian dinner where Benito is going to sit down and join us for dinner! (The best restaurant meals are the ones where the boss is seated at the table!) We still have a few more seats available if you would like to come! You can RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/The-Charleston-Italian-Language-Meetup/events/54723112/ we hope to see you there, it will be a blast! If you have already RSVP’d yes and can’t come, please change your RSVP to know. They will be reserving the tables for us, staffing accordingly, etc. and it really helps when we can give them an accurate head count. Grazie!
c. Then on Sunday, June 3, 2012, 6:00 PM we have our “Cena in Italiano”. I am happy to see how many we have signed up for this event but just to be sure I want to make sure everybody understands that this is a “non English” event. If you get stuck, speaking English will not help. Here is an excerpt from the event description: “That's right, no matter how frustrating, no matter how slow speaking, no matter how hilarious, this will be an Italian Language dining event! We will be served in Italian only! This is not for the faint of heart because if you don't understand what you ordered then who knows what you will get because we will not be using English and neither will you! This will be a test of how you could do. The service and even our conversation will be in Italian.” This should be fun!

d. Then on Saturday, June 9th, the Low Country Italian Festival will be hosting their first Bocce Tournament Fundraiser and we at the Italian Table want to be their most active sponsor so please come out to help sponsor this event. Details are now available. If you do not know how to play, don’t worry, Russ will be teaching us! RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/The-Charleston-Italian-Language-Meetup/events/58531502/
Ci vediamo presto!
