Do you live on the Eastside of Seattle and love all things Italian? Let's enjoy learning Italian together, cooking Italian cuisine, tasting Italian wine, learning about Italian culture, going to see Italian opera, and planning trips to Italy. Join us and meet new friends who share the same passion for Italian culture, language, food/wine and travel. We're relaxed, easygoing, fun, and welcoming.
We're geographically located to the East of Seattle; that includes Issaquah, Redmond, Kirkland, and others, as it's a quick drive/ride to all of these areas to meetups.
It does not matter if you know Italian language at all --- you might want to learn, and you'll be able to find people here who also want to learn, or are learning Italian, or can already speak, read, and write fluently. Our mantra is simple: Have fun, and enjoy Italian culture, food, language, and travel. That said, if you're learning Italian, this is the place to find people to learn with, making it more fun at the same time.
I started this meetup group because I enjoy organizing and I'm learning Italian. I want to live in Italy part time someday. I've got a couple of other meetup groups going (i.e., Seattle Area Jazz Musicians) and it's a great way to meet folks who I'd never otherwise meet. I look forward to good times --- dinner parties, study buddies, and some trips to Italy soon! -- Steve
