Description


A 'Bittersweet' afternoon at LUCA

Join us on Sunday, March 31st as we welcome back James Beard Award-winning author and authority on all things amaro, BT Parsons.

The afternoon will begin with a light and refreshing Aperitivo cocktail for guests upon arrival as well as their very own copy of 'Amaro,' Parsons' ode to Italy's favorite digestif. Shortly after, we will begin a guided tasting of 8 Amari led by BT Parsons where he will explore the fundamentals of Amaro, contrast regional differences in style and tradition as well as share intimate stories from his travels through Italy and time spent with Amari producers.

Upon conclusion of the tasting, there will be a meet and greet with BT Parsons where guests can interact further with the author and have him sign their personal copy of his book. This will also be a time for guests to socialize, taste additional Amari from LUCA's extensive collection and enjoy the space until LUCA opens for dinner at 4pm.



*Ticket price includes: Aperitivo cocktail, copy of 'Amaro' by B.T. Parsons, guided tasting of 8 Amari and snacks from LUCA kitchen*
