Parla Food Events Spring and Summer 2012

Well, it took me long enough but I’ve finally put some dates on the spring and summer 2012 events calendar. Planning events in Rome isn’t exactly the simplest task and I will be adding more items to the Events page throughout the spring as they are confirmed. If you have an idea for an event in Rome (or elsewhere!) feel free to leave a comment! Here’s what I’ve got in store so far:

Following the success of last year’s event, an Aperi-Gelato (ice cream happy hour) will be held at Il Gelato di Claudio Torce’ in Piazza Monte d’Oro 91/92 on April 7, May 5, June 16, and July 14 from 6-8pm. Savor savory gelato will be served with a glass of wine for €6 (1 of which will go to a local food charity).

I am super excited to introduce craft beer tastings to the Parla Food repertoire. I have been providing private beer tastings for about a year now, but beginning on March 12, I will offer semi-private tastings for a maximum of 6 participants. Learn about the thriving but little-known world of Italian craft beer during a guided tasting of three beers at Open Baladin, Rome’s leading pub. For more info and additional dates, visit the Eventbrite page. UPDATE: small group beer tastings sold out! To find out about my private beer tastings contact me.

The next Rome blogger meet-ups will take place on March 12 and April 23 (venues and times TBA). Keep up with the Rome Bloggers Group on Google and Facebook.

Update:: check out confirmed Spring/Summer 2012 events here.

    Several friends and I went to your “scheduled” ice cream happy hour tonight, but there wasn’t one! 🙁 Could you update your website? Will there actually be an ice cream happy hours this Summer?
