May is always a good month to eat and Italian is always a good choice, so when the two found themselves together, Olive Garden was the place. Located in the popular Promenade Town Center, parking can prove to be a challenge at times and only about half of our attendees dared drive their Corvettes to the social. One of our own did however find a terrific end-spot located right where he could keep his eye on his Vette all through dinner.
The restaurant invites us to Indulge our tastes from their Mediterranean menu with dishes under 600 calories, but personally I opted for the spaghetti and meatballs with sun-dried tomatoes!
With 36 hungry people arriving all at once, the scene was initially described by at least one of the staff as chaos, but once the bread sticks came and initial beverages were served our crazy group settled down and we went on to have a delightful evening as a well fed body of still crazy Corvette people.
Thanks to the wonderful staff at Olive Garden for handling our group with all of our varied needs and desires. Your restaurant is one of our favorites and surely on we will return to, even between events with your offering of unlimited pasta and salad. Hard to keep it at 600 calories though!
Next up on our calendar will be another “Italian” night out at Topper’s Pizza in Canyon Country. The salad bar alone is worth the drive, but when you can design your own pizza, that is a winning combination. We will be there, hope to see YOU on for the next TOT on June 21st at 6 PM.
Until then, we will meet again at another fine event put together by our Activities Committee.
