Mon., Sept. 14th - September Italian Party

  • Sep 14, 2009 · 6:00 PM

Please join us for our monthly Italian Party!

This month we are trying a new location - PIOLA NYC
A big thank you to one of our members, Norma, for helping us to secure this location for our group!

48 East 12th Street between University and Broadway

Please note that the time is changed to 6 p.m. (not 6:30 p.m.)

We will have a friendly evening of Italian conversation and share our passion for Italian food and culture. All levels of Italian speakers are welcome, even those who are only thinking of taking Italian language lessons! Just come prepared to have a good time speaking Italian (and sometimes English) with other Italophiles! Cash bar and food is available. We meet at 6:00 for drinks and conversation. There is a free aperitivo of appetizers from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. You must pay for drinks... Many of us sit down to eat dinner at around 7:30 p.m. The party goes til around 8:30 or 9. Please remember to tip for food and drinks.

Suggested donation $2.

Please join us and RSVP here, below.

    We had a great time at this new location! Piola was very generous with the appetizers and we had lots of space to mingle and sit down to chat. Lots of new people attended, as well as many of our regular attendees. Thank you to everyone for making it another fun evening! - Lisa L

    I thought the location and the restaurant was really great! The waiters attended to us very nicely and I absolutely loved the appetizers- they just kept on coming:) The food was yummy! Also, I thought there were more people of different ages this time around- instead of only one age group. I spoke with many different people of different ages and of different italian levels and it was fun to laugh at all our mistakes. I've been to two other Italian meet ups and by far I have had the most fun at this one. Thanks!

    Today's meet up was a great session of people willing to try to speak Italian, no matter what skill level. It was very enjoyable and fun. This meetup always is an enjoyable experience, very well organized and the organizer is a gracious host.
