RDG, I edited your entry just a wee bit so the English speaking folks can understand a bit better...

The menu sounds good... yeah, these unlucky bunch who are stuck in the city deserves at least a treat like that!! Hope enjoy your dinner, and have a great time in Veneto!!

No holiday in August?


Hey, my birthday is August 16th, that is the perfect time for a mid-August party.

I spent my Holidays since July 24 to aug.6 in Corse. Now I'm in Milano for some days for a little work (otherwise I lose the habit ), but I'm leaving for Veneto on 18. Mountains.
On 15, I'll have a toast for you: happy birthday (in advance)
