Italian Food & Wine Meetup

  • Nov 9, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Boulder Wine Meetup member Ben is an Italian fan, an ex-chef, and a frequent member of our wine tastings. He has volunteered to host an Italian Food & Wine Meetup and you are invited!

Please bring an Italian dish and a bottle of Italian wine to share plus your own wine glass. Ben will prepare a few pasta dishes as well.

This small-group food and wine tasting is limited to 20 people, so please only RSVP that you will attend if you for sure can make it. A late cancellation or No Show simply means we can't accommodate someone else.

    For those who have not yet decided on what to bring, some ideas...maybe Salami, procuitto, or olive tapenade & cheese, perhaps a cheesecake or dessert, sausage dish, garlic bread :-) ...

    I opened up the meetup for a few more folks. Some will have to stand outside and rotate in... <Just Kidding! >

    And I have already emailed the address to those who have RSVP'ed Yes.

    It is a "right-sized" home, great for many reasons! But huge meetup parties is not one of them sadly. So sorry for those on the wait list... Next time for sure....

    So.... I'm starting to cook now, can you smell it? I look forward to a very fun night!

    Ciao amici!

    Buon Giorno!

    We are just a few days away from our Italiano Celebration!

    A couple things:

    Please update your RSVP if you may not make it. We have a big waiting list and absolutely want as many folks to come as possible!

    If you know what you're making/bringing, please post a comment or update your RSVP with the info. I will be making some Shrimp-Veggie garlic-butter-lemon Penne and maybe some Pesto Chicken Tortellini. I will have extra chaffing dishes for anyone who wants to serve their food hot! My vino is a Chianti and some sweet Riesling... I've also been known to sneak in my world famous Italian Margarita's... But this is a wine meetup so I'm still debating :-) What do you think? ... lol ...

    So my next email will have address and parking info...

    Ciao for now! See you soon!

    Ben

    Being a full blooded Italian, I really want to join in on the Italian meals meetup. I had plans for this same night so I hesitated. I put myself on the wait list just in case something opens up. Sounds like a great night.
