Due to the aftermath of the snow, wind and ice storm, "oh my," the Italian Cultural Society has cancelled their Carnevale Celebration on Sunday, February 14 at the Friendship Heights Community Center. No snow date in sight. Other events postponed include the National Organization of Italian American Women of the Greater Washington, D.C. Region (NOIAW) Networking and Recruiting Happy Hour at Il Mulino. New snow date is Tuesday, February 23 from 6-8. Come by and say, "Ciao" to CiaoDC.com! Have you already read the CiaoDC.com interview with NOIAW honoree Ambassador Connie Morella? Read here.
Shows that are on despite the snow include Tosca (the restaurant) open on Sunday -- when they are typically closed -- for Valentine's Day. Roberto Donna's doors are open at home all weekend for a very intimate Valentine's Day and Carnevale Celebration. Friday, Saturday and Sunday classes are scheduled and still available for reservations. Check schedule for February listings.
