In 2007, I went to Italy with my parents; it was the trip of a lifetime. We did a semi-independent tour of Italy, visiting three cities: Rome, Florence, and Venice. This was my first time going to Europe, and what better place to go than Italy, where about 3/8th of my ancestors hail from? I was mesmerized there; from the food, to the culture, to the language. It was an unforgettable experience, and I would love to go back to Italy someday. Fortunately, you and I won’t have to travel four thousand miles and spend just as much for a trip to Italy to enjoy the delicious Italian feasts.
On August 8th, the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce is hosting its 8th Annual La Tavola Italian Feast Under the Stars! I haven’t been to La Tavola in my time working here, but I have heard it’s an evening full of music, chatter, and wonderful Italian food that can only come second best to the true thing—delicious food that we would get in an Italian ristorante! I would love to go this year with my parents, and I hope you will join not only me, but the wonderful ladies at the Chamber of Commerce and the community that represents this wonderful town!
This year, La Tavola will be held on the Green at the Mashpee Commons beginning at 5:30 PM. Here, you will get to enjoy a wonderful five-course Italian dinner while enjoying the soothing sounds of Italian tenor Aaron Caruso. As some of you may know, Caruso sung at last year’s La Tavola Italian Feast. Along with the five-course meal, you will get to enjoy Italian wine and local Cape Cod beer. Treat yourself to Gustare Oils & Vinegar on bread, salad, and more.
