From Boulder Wine Meetup member Valerio:
Let's have an evening of food, wine and laughter cooking together with our dead friends celebrating, in bad taste, this dark but important holiday. This is the link for your " SKULL PAINTING" ideas. Please don't come "unpainted", you will be the only one. If you need assistance with the "art" we can help you, may be. I guess. Real costumes are not necessary, but, but, just DRESS TO BE NOTICED !!!!!!!!!!!!
We are going to make Polenta and prepare various different sauces for it, mixed vegetables, Gorgonzola, bloody spicy red, sausages, butter and sage, mushrooms... who knows.......... when Polenta is ready, we are going to poor it on a huge wood board with all the sauces on the side. Scoop it, serve it, dress it and perfetto, che meraviglia. As dessert we will have saute' strawberries with triple sec and vanilla ice cream.
If this "food and wine"event will turn in a "party", we will go in the "DUNGEON" downstairs, so my dearest friend next door will not complain again. Besides DUNGEON sounds really good.........
There is a cost of $ 20.00 to cover expences. I will provide everything, from the food to pots, pans, tables, chairs, flatware, plates, table linens, utensils………..bla,bla…….and everybody brings a bottle of an Italian wine and a glass. Please, as usual, help me clean up. The Meet up is open to 25 people and 13 spots are available. The location is my home in Lafayette. I will email my address later to the attendees.
