Virtual Dinner Dance from your Home

Sunday, May. 3, 2020 - 5:00 PM

Walnut Creek

The Italian American Club will have its second Virtual Dinner Dance on Sunday, May 3.

Once again Il Pavone will prepare delicious gourmet meals, packaged and delivered to Rossmoor for pick up. The menu will include an entrée choice of Italian Sausage and Peppers over Polenta, or Chicken Parmigiana with Penne and Marinara Sauce. The meal will include Williams Salad, bread and butter, and a special innovative dessert called “Cannoli Ma No Cannoli.” 

The Wiliiams Salad is poached pears, baby mixed lettuce, dried cranberries, candied pecans, imported Dolce Latte Gorgonzola and Grana Padano cheeses with balsamic dressing.  The Cannoli Ma No Cannoli has all the ingredients of a Sicilian cannolo, ricotta cream, candied fruit etc. but is cleverly deconstructed so the shell remains crisp. 

The price for each dinner is $32, payable by check directly to Il Pavone at the time of pick-up. Each dinner will be individually packaged in microwavable containers. The meals will be delivered to Rossmoor and ready for pick at the Hillside parking lot starting at 5 p.m. on the day of the event.

Our first virtual dinner dance, which was held on April 17, was a great success. Nearly 50 Rossmoor residents enjoyed the delicious meal. The delivery and pick up was well organized and went smoothly. Several individuals participated in a lively “cocktail hour” on Zoom, while a virtual disc-jockey attempted to provide background music of favorite Italian songs.

The Italian American Virtual Dinner Dance is open to all Rossmoor residents. The Cocktail Hour will begin at our usual time of 5:15 PM – or since it’s virtual–whenever you like and how long you like. (Note: BYOB! –you will have to provide your own liquor and wine.)

Send your reservations via email to Bertha Messina at BerthaMessina@ItalianAmericanClub.Org 925-944-4877. Specify the number of meals ($32 each), and be sure to include your phone, cell number and email address. In addition, let us know if you want to participate in the music and/or conversation and we will send you an invite and instructions by email. The deadline for reservations is Thursday, April 29 .

This is a great way to banish the blues, have some fun and a gourmet meal, while helping our friends at Il Pavone. Like all restaurants, they are struggling to keep employees on the payroll during this crisis. They truly appreciate our patronage and support.
