Ready to Join?

Our first dinner party in this series was Jamaican themed. In March we're taking it to Italy!!! And since it will be Easter let's combine the 2 and celebrate Easter Italian Style.

Now, I am not the most religious person. I was raised Christian and own a bible (my mother gave it to me) and for those of you who have been to my apartment you know I have Buddhas and elephants and just about a touch of most religions. I am guess I might just be non-committal or maybe it's the Catholic School girl in me rebelling. I rambled all that to say that you should feel free to attend regardless of whatever religion you identify with or even if you're Agnostic or an Atheist. My home is a judgement free zone.

Now for the good stuff ...

Dress Code: Casual Chic … The colors of the Italian flag are red, green and white. Please wear any combinations of these colors.

Meal: Family style. Wine will also be served. If you have a favorite Italian wine please feel free to bring it with you as well.

Cost: $25 …donation towards covering food and alcohol costs. This should be paid by paypal. All donations need to be received by March 17th.

I will not be setting a maximum cap here but I like to keep the gathering small; at a maximum of 6. I will close the guest list once the first 6 people have completed the RSVP process which is as follows:

1). sign up on Internations.
2). Email me directly.
3). Paypal your donation of $25.

Once that is completed send me a personal email to let me know any and all of the following or anything else I might not have thought of:
1) Do you have any allergies?
2) Are you vegan, vegetarian, observing a holiday and restrict your food choices, have a special diet…?
3) Do you consume alcohol?

Location: In the Pearl/Fremont area of Portland. Because this is my home I will not post my actual address here. But, I will send it to all attendees 24hrs before the party.

Rules:
1). Come with a fun, open mind to make friends, eat great food, drink great wine and look forward to the next party.
2). Please cancel at least 48 hrs. in advance. Since it is already such a meager list of people we want to give other interested members a chance to join.
3). Respect my home.
4). Limit your phone usage at the dinner table. Let's try to engage and stay engaged with the people there. We didn't give up a Saturday evening just to text all night long, right?

Looking forward to having you in my home.
