Italian cars, Italian music, Italian food!

Hello to everyone! Here’s what’s coming up at Il Tavolo:

First, I’d like to draw your attention to an event at the College of Charleston this week: Italian Chiavari Day on Thursday Oct. 25th, starting at 4:30 pm. This unique event features Italian cars, music, and food, and is just $10 (suggested donation). This is not an Il Tavolo event so the $1 meetup fee does not apply. Read more about it here.

Coming up at the end of the month, the Cena in Italiano at La Fontana on Oct. 28th at 6 pm. This is a low-pressure event – you will not get in trouble if you accidentally slip into English! – and a great opportunity to try out what you’ve learned (and have some great Italian food at the same time). This meetup event is $1 (for non cardholders) plus the cost of your food. RSVP here.

Then join us for a tasting of Tuscan wines at The Wine Shop of Charleston on Nov. 1st at 6:30 pm. This fantastic event is an opportunity to get to know one of our newer sponsors as well as learn a thing or two about some great Italian wines. (And if you like what you try, remember that cardholders get 10% one case of wine and 15% of two or more cases!) The $28 covers your wine as well as hors d’oeuvres from Massimiliano at Osteria la Bottiglia downtown. RSVP here.

A reminder about the Lowcountry Festa Italiana Family Dinner taking place at St. John the Beloved Catholic Church in Summerville on Nov. 9th at 6:30. A great Italian meal for $15! Get tix in advance – check out the flyer.
