As one of the assistant organizers for the Italian Meetup Group, I want to share some ideas that have been discussed to take this group and the Italian Culture Group in some new directions. While the language practice concept will still be hosted as usual, we will also be adding more social options - these may include dining out at Italian restaurants, Italian wine tasting, festivals, tours of the Hill, plays, concerts, bocce, some house parties, etc. While most of these will have a theme around Italian culture, some will be general gatherings as we learn members' interests.
To start this off, Carol Righi, an assistant organizer, will be hosting a meet and greet potluck house pool party Aug 16th. She has a large pool, bocce court, other games, bonfire, and more. Kids are welcome, too. See the listing for that date for details - it has been posted to both groups.
While these more socially oriented meetups will be mainly part of the Culture Group, they will be cross posted to this group too. So, we hope to meet more of you, grow these groups, and especially HAVE FUN!!!! And we hope to see you August 16!
