Ferragosto Eve (aka: The Assumption)

Location image of event venue


I have chosen Cacio e Vino for the venue for Thursday night's dinner. It was made easier because of your responses and the imminent time restraint. $50 for the price fixed dinner, which includes food, wine, tax and tip.

We will have the same menu, more or less, that we had last year at the Ferragosto celebration.
