My friend Sherri and I celebrated our birthdays with our friend Maria last month. We were thinking about where we could go for dinner when I remembered a local family run Italian restaurant, "Vino e Cucina", that offers twice monthly a dinner with an Italian language lesson taught by a young man from Sicily, Andrea Giannone. We decided to do that.
It was a fun night out starting with some champagne to kick off the celebration.
Cheers to the birthday girls!
We arrived at Vino e Cucina, took our seats
Sherri, me and Maria
and met some of the other students.
He brought his cousin Fabio and it was fun to have him in the class as well.
There is a lesson and then a pause for some dinner.
Andrea continues the lessons...
Grazie mille to our "Professore Andrea and his cousin Fabio"! What a nice way to celebrate our birthdays.
