2018 Culinary Tour Kick-off Event: "Venice Carnevale"

We are kicking off the 2018 Culinary Tour with a fresh look and very fun event. Celebrating "Carnevale" as they do each year in Venice, Italy during the February time frame, we will enjoy a five course meal prepared by an Italian chef from Tuscany and hosted in a private home setting. 

Carnevale is similar in ways to Mardi Gras in that you dress up in your favorite costume (and mask if you want to be in full costume apparel) and enjoy good food and the company of fellow UCLA Alumni. So, break out your best costume or themed time period garb and an appetite for some delicious and authentic Italian cuisine.

The cost of the event is $34 and will be limited to 25 people so register before it is sold out. The location will be sent to you once registration/payment is confirmed. This should be a very fun event. Feel free to bring a bottle of wine to share. Ci vediamo a presto!

Date and Time:
Saturday, February 3, 2018
6:30 p.m.

La Mesa, CA
(Specific location will be provided upon registration)

$34 per person

Background: Carnevale, also known as carnival or mardi gras, is celebrated in Italy 40 days before Easter. Italy celebrates Carnevale with a huge winter festival celebrated with parades, masquerade balls, entertainment, music, and parties. Venice's Carnival season starts about two weeks before the actual date of Carnevale. Events and entertainment are held nightly throughout Venice, with people in costumes wandering around the city and reveling.
