Tuscans prepare long communal tables in the streets and feast on local specialties during the Palio di Siena annual horse race every July and August as you can see in the picture. We will transform our Piazza to recreate that sense of camaraderie and merriment on the day of the race in Italy at our Palio Party, Wednesday, August 16 at 7 pm. Sample Sienese specialities like “Pasta della Misera” – an almost forgotten dish popular after World War I of homemade pasta with pancetta, tomato, chickpeas and Tuscan pecorino.   If you missed our Cena Bianca (White Dinner) in June, you definitely don’t want to miss this one! Buy tickets now!

We’ll have fun with your favorite furry companions later on this month.  Bring your pet to dinner outside Wednesday, August 23 for our Pets on the Piazza.  Make your reservation starting at 5:30 pm. Find out more below, and if you share a picture of your pet on our Facebook page, you could win a gift certificate from the Cheeky Puppy AND a gourmet dinner for your pet!  What is his favorite meal – hamburger, steak, tuna?  We’ll let him decide!

Good food is our specialty, but we also like to provide informative events so you can host great parties on your own. Cheese boards can become the centerpiece of your party when you know how to choose and arrange the right cheeses and their accompaniments. Alice Bergen Phillips, owner of Cheesemonster, is a cheese expert with an artistic hand who will educate us on how to craft our own unique boards. The only limit is your imagination.  Read more and get tickets for our Summer Entertaining with Cheese, Thursday, August 24 at 6 pm.
