    Official start time for the party is 4 catster/dogster time which is 7 eastern time. Its nice to see so many here already and so many wonderful goodies in addition to the official menu...and as someone said, yes, we may need to be rolled home. Here is the official menu The Menu for La Festa Italiana...there are many courses so don't overload on one. ANTIPASTO: plates full of prosciuto, mortadella, smoked ham, salami, marinated vegetables, olives, marinated peppers, provolone, buocconicini, mozzarella

    sorry, but I am listing the Segunda Piatta as separate postings because there is something included here catster thinks is not "G" rated and won't let it through and I have no idea what iit so...so, dish by dish

    Elliott, are you still here. We officially start in about 20 minutes. I didn't know you spoke Itialian. Mom keeps trying to learn so reading what you and a few others are saying is great practice.

    My Mommie is having trouble already, Kate. She has conversations going in the RBK and at Coqui's birthday party. So I don't think I'll be saying much. But I will be here with you, my darling wife!

    You aren't the only one with that trouble, Bitu! We just try to understand if our friends miss something, and hope they do the same!!

    Oh Stinker, hello! I'm tempted to lie to seem cosmopolitan and impress the ladies, but that wouldn't be nice - I don't speak Italian - I just found a great site that will translate your sentences into other languages for you - babelfish.yahoo.com Check it out ;-)
