Reno Italian Festival

I'm taking a break from Our Italy trip today to write about our visit with Fiona and Steve last weekend in Reno. It was our second visit to the Eldorado Italian Festival. Just the thing for the weekend after jet lag and returning home from Italy: Italian food, music and fun! It was also great to have a weekend of real fall weather and autumn colored leaves and even snow on the mountains!

Friday night: pizza and a wine bar with a beautiful Reno sunset!


Saturday: Brad wore his fabulous new Italy/wine shirt:


We ate Italian sausage and cheesy garlic bread, had vino, watched a few great musical acts on the two stages and watched the crowds and their fun "Italian clothes".



I waited patiently until my favorite band played at 3:30! Ray Massa's Eurorhythms:


The highlight of my day was a photo with my favorite (He has replaced a certain cute southern California chef as my Number 1 Italian "boyfriend") singer, Marco!


Saturday night we had Italian food with Fiona, Steve and our good friend Wally. Sunday, we had a relaxing morning, and great lunch, then back to the airport! Thanks, Fiona and Steve for another great Reno weekend!

Where did Brad find that shirt?!?! It's the best.

Sounds like fun! The one in Rancho Mirage is coming up soon - right?

Jan, we found Brad's shirt during the Carmel GTG! The back lists ALL the regions of Italy.

Nancy, the one in RM is Nov. 5.

Barb Cabot:

OMG love love love Brad's italian shirt...but then again you look positively darling in your italian outfit! Cute couple!
