Upcoming Events

For the January Monthly Meeting, Francesca Ventura, founder and fearless leader of our buraco interest group, will offer us all an introduction to BURACO, the beloved social card game many of us have heard of, some know how to play, and all can certainly take on! We will meet at Misterlino (the cool knitting bar on Strada Maggiore, near Porta Mazzini) for the entire general meeting on Thursday, January 18th: at 7:15pm there will be our usual social gathering; at 8:00pm Francesca will speak to us about the history of buraco and the rules of the game.  Following this introduction to the game, an informal tournament will take place for whomever wants to play. Of course, everyone is welcome to stayand enjoy the company (with cards in hand or not) and the no-host aperitivo time which will continue right there at Misterlino. A warm, friendly, social time for a dark, cold January evening!

We hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you at the monthly meeting - if not sooner!
