L'Apertivo (Monthly Happy Hour and Dinner)

Almost every month, The Mid South Italian Club organizes a L'Aperitivo Italiano often followed by dinner. Mi piace molto!!

So, why the name "Aperitivo"? The name comes from the latin aperire (to open). It used to be an alcoholic beverage consumed before dinner, with ancient medicinal origins as a concoction to cure the lack of appetite. These days in Italy, Aperitivo is used to define first and foremost a ritual, a social happening, a moment of relaxation where people exit the work mode, meet up with friends, chat while enjoying a drink (alcoholic or not) and some appetizers before dinner, which usually happens later on in the night.
