BUON NATALE! ~ 1st Annual Italian Christmas Party

Benvenuti alla nostra prima Festa di Natale annuale!

Welcome to our first Annual Christmas Party!

I want to welcome all to our first annual Christmas party for our Italian members! Of course, bring your family and friends if you like, if they don’t mind listening to “Italiano”.

I need to extend a special thanks to two of our members. The first member is the one who is willing to host the location of this event in her apartment common room in South lake union area. More details how to get into the building will be emailed to those who RSVP'd 'Yes' closer to the party date.

In addition, my second thanks goes out to a member who has a family business importing products from Southern Italy. Thanks to this member, we will have a self-serve area of antipasti and coffee, along with some other potential “surprises” that she might be able to throw in.

What to Bring:
This is a potluck so bring a dish that you can share with the group. The dish should be Italian and/or holiday related. To make sure 5 people don’t bring the same food item, please post what food item you are bringing (if you know what you are bringing). Don’t forget the vino or your favorite alcohol drink!

Location:

South Lake Union - Stackhouse Apts - at Yale and Harrison Streets in Seattle on the 3rd Floor (Resident Lounge).

Amenities:

We have access to a full kitchen including 2 ovens, stovetop, huge refrigerator and a giant countertop.  In addition, there is a banquette seating area along the wall with little tables, a sofa, a pool table, and a large deck with outdoor seating and two grills (with lights attached!) for those brave souls who want to wander outside.

Volunteers:
In addition, along with all the fun, I also need a few volunteers willing to help us clean after the party. Please email me if you can help. Thanks in advance.

    Do you need to be fluent in Italian to attend? Will english be spoken at the event? The other Italian language group I went I could not communicate with anybody, as everyone spoke Italiano.. Sorry, but io capisco un po l'italiano.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
