    Brilliant Apertif to welcome the Summer, Friday 3rd of June! An amazing crowd of about 550-600 people joined us at ?Bar Trattoria Semplice? in Bond Street for a very memorable event which started at 6pm (and by 7pm already 250 people had arrived) and ended well past 1am the following morning. The weather was just perfect and so it was the very mixed crowd with lots of Italians (of course!) but also friends from France, Germany, Spain, Argentina, Japan, Taiwan, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Sweden, South Africa, Cameroon, Brasil, USA, Canada, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Austria, Moldova and so many more Countries we didn?t even know they existed!! Well, a sign that the Italian flair is indeed very popular all over the World :-) A huge thank you to Francesca, Giusy and Ilenia, our girls who prepared the event. And an even greater thank you to all of you who attended : we are aware there were a few glitches during the night (the extremely long queue at the bar, the free food that was almost impossible to take to people in the outside area, the fact the staff of the venue was behind schedule with setting up the outside Beach Umbrellas, tables and chairs and in the end there was no time to do it due to the huge turnout) but from the comments we are receiving, most of you showed lots of patience (a crowd of 500+ people is by all means a daunting task to manage) and ultimately enjoyed a lot this event ? thank you! We have just published here on Meetup over 90 photos from the night - make sure you tag them and share them with your friends! All the remaining photos (over 150) are published exclusively on our website :
