    Sorry I couldn't make it last night, Vincent, but as I explained, I do work for DSNY. Overtime was mandatory. I worked until 6 PM last night. After working 12 hours I was just too tired and far away to make it. I'll try to make it in January - weather permitting, of course. I hope everyone had a good time!

    Uh oh.... the weather just isn't cooperating. I don't mind driving in bad weather, but there probably won't be good parking on the street and I cannot afford to use a garage. Plus.... there's shoveling to be done and my bad shoulder precludes me from doing it... as I wait for my son to do it for me....

    To all those who are able to make the dinner.... divertitevi! Merry Christmas to all... Sending auguri ed abbracci.... <3

    As of 3 PM there is no problem with snow; neither on Long Island, nor in Manhattan! Please come!!!

    December 10, 2013

    • Rosaria

      I feel so sad to read this.... I wanted to go so badly, but the weather makes people drive like idiots, thus, the hideous traffic, particularly during rush hour.....

      December 10, 2013

  • Rosaria

    Northern NJ has had slippery/snowy roads all day-- a couple inches by me...unfortunately, the traffic going into the city was the killer. DAMN! MANAGIA! I really wanted to see everyone before Christmas... I hope you have a decent turnout.... Abbracci....

    December 10, 2013

  • VincentTitone

    There is no problem with the snow, both here on the south shore of Long Island nor in lower Manhattan!
    Please come!

    December 10, 2013

    • VincentTitone

      I'm already at the restaurant. There is not a speck of snow anywhere.

    Secondo me, se noi vogliamo riuscire a capire la mentalita e la propria vita dei paesini siciliani, dobbiamo parlare la loro lingua. Io sono laureato in lingua e letteratura italiana ma a volte preferisco
    parlare siciliano.

    I haven't been around in awhile and was actually hoping to make this one. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has other plans in the works. It's going to snow tomorrow which more than likely means mandatory overtime for me. Hopefully I'll be able to make the Meetup in January. I miss seeing all of you guys.

    Caro Vincenzo.
    Che bella sorpresa(pignolata)! Mia nonna materna era la miglior cuoca al mondo . Mi ricordo che durante le feste natalizie lei invitava dei parenti e degli amici a casa per mangiare la pignolata ed i cuccidatti fatto a mano. Non vedo l'ora di saggiare la pignolata a Cacio/Vino
    Ciao!
