Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

I would love to, but unfortunately I don't have enough space at the moment. However, I will soon be looking for a larger apartment (ideally I would like to move this fall), and then...God help my future neighbours

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

I'd volunteer, but I live in the middle of nowhere and also have no kitchen.

Or bathroom.

But I do have a jacuzzi.

Not sure about sharing it with Prof Taratonga though. That isn't the reason I bought it.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

***UPDATE*** I forgot about my garden furniture!

If you all promise to be VERY VERY quiet after 10pm when you are outside on my balcony, then we can have it at my apartment - that is only if people don't mind to sit on the floor (I have small pillows you can sit on).

I would say my place holds max 10 people on seats and another 6 perhaps with small pillows on the floor.. so max 16 peeps including me.

I do not own cats but a very lovely russian blue comes to visit me often.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

Just so you know, I am "working my charm" to convince my dad's employees and coworkers to open the shop during their vacation time in August and make us a special fresh batch of Amaretti di Gallarate that I can bring to the party (see a picture from their website here, sorry, writing only in Italian, but you can still see what they look like). They are a special sweet delicacy from my area in Northern Italy: unlike traditional amaretti they are made with bitter almonds and they are hand-shaped one by one, with love.

No Seafood Pasta this time. Instead I will serve some "Jambalaya".

Nothing to do with comedy or absinthe, but when I was in London recently I found a wonderful spice shop and bought a creole mix (NOLA), a mapuche mix (Chile) and a tagine mix (Morocco). I know you're a great cook and a great host, and always handle gracefully this unruly bunch of EF-ers, so perhaps I can tempt you/challenge you to make future culinary experiments with the above spices?

Btw, I LOVE jambalaya!!!

A Jamaican friend of mine has offered me some Ethiopian herbs I can bring along to add to the brew.

Lion!

@Federica

Challenge accepted. The shop looks great. Need some alligator sausage...

@Uncle Max

You can find us by the smoke signals.

@all
Will close the subscription soon as my living room is not expandable.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

Hey,

My friend will be traveling to Galicia during that time, so it will just be me. He is very sorry to miss the event, obviously. Of course I promised to him that I will behave, and that you all will make sure that I behave properly and don't cause any trouble

I guess this brings us down to 16 people then.

Very much looking forward to it!

Fede

Federica is bringing some sweets I guess.

I will make some Jambalya and maybe a Dessert. Also some Rum.

We probably need some more Absinth and something to eat for the Apero.
@all: Anyone bringing some beer? Food?

I will also bring you bottles of two of my favorite wines in the world: Amarone from Veneto, in honor of my grandma, and Cannonau from Sardinia, for my dad.
