    Hi Vincent,
    The month of June beginning June 5th the Sicilian Carriage Festival takes place in Taormina. June 5h,12th,18th and 25th. It would be good to host the celebration on June 5th ,Thursaday. Speak to Giusto. Just a suggestion. Perhaps you could discuss the Sician Carriage Featival and its origins. Other suggestions are needed and welcomed for other events. This is only my suggestion as a group member. I'm certain that all of you have great suggestions that should be shared with Vincent.

    One more question Vincent - is there an age minimum? If my 16 or 20 year old daughters are interested I would like to bring them.

    • VincentTitone

      I don't see why there would be any limit according to age. After all they are not infants.

    Although I will not be able to attend the festivities on May,18th I took it upon myself to call the restaurant this afternoon. Someone answered and told me the Chef Melissa is working on the details for the dinner and that I should call up later to speak to her. I can truly understand everyone's frustration. It's insane. Thought I could help. Anyway, to all my friends attending "Buon Divertimento!" Good luck in getting the menu prior to May 18th.

    Vincenzo, I'll be performing at this event! A few Sicilian folk songs and southern Italian tarantellas (with both my music partner Joe Ravo (as Villa Palagonia) and with my dance partner Peter DiGeronimo). This coupled with Melissa's excellent cuisine, ensures a fabulous afternoon!
