We are excited to announce a special event for Italian Society of Savannah members and their guests. New member Chef Michael Romano, of Ruth’s Chris Steak House, has created a terrific five-course menu with wine pairings for each course. We have reserved our own room at Ruth’s Chris for Thursday, August 13. We plan to begin the evening at 6 p.m.

This is not a regular Italian Society event, rather it’s a special program we’ve designed in response to member requests for enhanced social offerings. Consequently, the evening is open to anyone you invite, while each member is responsible for his own (and his party’s) cost(s). Dinner is $85++ per person, and includes a unique wine pairing with each course. We are subject to a guaranteed minimum, so we’ll need roughly 20 RSVP confirms by EOD Monday, August 9. Please RSVP to Chief Steward, Lenny Panzitta, at lpanzitta@panzittalaw.com. Copy slauretti@theskinnie.com with your RSVP, if possible.

Chef Michael has created a great menu and will work hard to ensure an excellent evening. Given the culinary program, this event seems like a great value. Please show your support for Michael and your Society and your interest in strengthening fellowship among our group by attending and bringing your friends and family. We look forward to seeing you on the 13th.
