Buon Anno at La Tavola

Not surprisingly, Italy is a land full of New Year’s Eve traditions. From the spectacular fireworks that light up the night to the over-flowing spumante and prosecco to playing a game similar to Bingo called Tombola to (my personal favorite) throwing your old clothes out the window at midnight to symbolize your readiness to accept the coming new year. Sounds like an excellent excuse to go shopping, no? Of course, traveling to the Boot to celebrate isn’t always an option, so allow La Tavola to help you ring in 2012 with a delicious 3-course prix fixe dinner for only $55/person (plus tax and gratuity). Bellisimo!
