- Holiday Dinner@IL PIZZICO & Winter Lights Festival Drive thru Seneca Creek ParkIl Pizzico Restaurant, Rockville, MD
MUST BE ON TIME. Meet at the bar. Allow 15 minutes more for traffic because it's always bad near the restaurant. If you are more than 10 minutes late, you lose your seat. They are very fussy at this restaurant and will not seat us until all our people are present.
Dinner: 6:30-8:30 pm
Leave carpool for lights: 8:30 pm arrive ~8:45 pm
Drive through lights: 8:45-9:45+ pm
Back to restaurant: ~10:00 pm
$15/car, but we can split it and I can take one or two persons in my car and we can take other cars.
After dinner (RSVP), we'll carpool to Seneca creek park to drive through "Winter Lights." If you only want to go to the light festival, meet us at 7:00 pm in the parking lot (No RSVP; just be there and comment/call that you are coming so we look for you).
Winter Lights is a magical Holiday light display at Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, Maryland. If you have never seen it, you really should as this is great for all ages.
Seneca Creek State Park
11950 Clopper Road
See more than 350 illuminated displays and along a 3.5-mile drive through the park. Driving through the enchanted forest setting, you will experience an array of displays that light up the night. Themed areas include Winter Woods, Teddy Bear Land, Victorian Village, the North Pole and much more. Winter Lights benefits local charities such as Andy’s Safe Haven, Asbury Village in support of Gaithersburg Beloved Community Initiative, Baby’s Bounty MC, Inc., Friends of Wells/Robertson House, Inc., Gaithersburg Community Soup Kitchen, and Pain Connection - Chronic Pain Outreach Center, Inc.
Approach the restaurant going North on 355, otherwise it is difficult to enter their parking lot. Turn right just before the Exxon station on the corner of W. Gude Dr.
Dinners range in price from ~$15-$30+ for a plate and it is traditional Italian (not American so no Pizza or Lasagna).
They have anti-vampire pasta dishes along with wonderful doses of olive spread and bread!
Wine is on your own, but we can team up and get a bottle! We'll show them.
All Aboard, Mates!
Leave it to the Italians to sink my diet!
