Rolando is bringing Carnevale to the Roadhouse, just for you!

Save the date for the biggest party of the year! We are excited to celebrate the Italian version of Mardi Gras with Rolando Beramendi and taste what our favorite food importer will bring to the feast!

The very first Martedi Grasso began in Venice in 1162 and celebrates the Catholic tradition of the final day of eating meat before Lent. Rolando has selected delicious meat dishes from his cookbook Autentico to follow the Italian tradition. He will also bring masks for everyone to decorate! Feel free to wear a favorite costume if you enjoy dressing up for the holiday, the Roadhouse loves costumes!

As the saying goes, "a Carnevale ogni scherzo vale", or “Anything goes at Carnevale!” Join us for a lively and unforgettable evening as Rolando talks to us about this traditional Italian winter festival and guides us through a colorful parade of authentic flavors.
