Our New York Scooter Club Holiday Party will be at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, December 7th at:

Via delle Zoccolette, located at 95 Avenue A @ E. 6th St.

This should be the one event of the year for which we dress a little better than usual.

Please RSVP to nyscooterclub@gmail.com by Friday, December 2 at the latest so we can get a tentative head count.

We’ll be enjoying a 5-course Italian wine dinner:
- Champagne (Prosecco) reception with bruschetta,
- Caprese (fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes & basil) with Pinot Grigio.
- Pici pasta (made of ricotta cheese, instead of flour) and Pizza Margherita with a Sicilian red wine (Nero d’Avola).
- Stuffed chicken breast dish with vegetables and a good Chianti.
- For dessert, panna cotta and sweet Moscato wine.

All this will be served in courses, but buffet style and the wine will be free-flowing throughout the evening. We will have our own servers, lounge area, restrooms and the whole floor to ourselves with no time limit. We will have to pay extra for other than wine (for example, a beer is $5).

The whole dinner with wine is $43 per person, including tax and tip.

Again, please RSVP to nyscooterclub@gmail.com by Friday, December 2 at the latest so we can get a tentative head count.

We hope to see you all then!

Wow, wish I could be there. When it comes to Italian food, the full, blown-out multi-course meals are the ONLY way to go.

That sounds great. I wish I was closer. Damn! Now I'm hungary.

How many people in your club?

We have a regular group of about 25 scooterists. At our recent launch party we had over 60 and it was a blast.

The Holiday Party has been upped a notch or two.

First, we have a new menu:

Prosecco reception (Italian sparkling wine)
Eggplant and Pecorino Bruschetta
Chef’s choice of salad
Hand-rolled Pici pasta w/string bean, artichoke and asparagus in a light sauce.
Leg of lamb marinated in red wine and aromatic herbs
Panettone
All courses paired with Italian white, rosé, red and sweet dessert wines.

Second, the price has been reduced to $40, even.

This is good stuff.

Some people are telling me they haven’t RSVP’d because I should already know that they’re coming.
That’s not gonna work.
It’s important that we get your name and number in your party to make this as easy on the restaurant as possible.
They’re really treating us well with this.

Thanks, Modern Vespa!

Wish I was closer for not only meals but the chance to hang with other scooterists. Do you plan on doing longer weekends rides up into the Hudson Valley?

We've been riding upstate all Summer long. Watch our website and forum for future rides to your neck of the woods, or suggest a ride and we'll come meet you.

Very cool! I live pretty close to the nexus of NY, VT and Mass. A bit far for a day ride for you all day definitely would meet half-way or whatever. I'll keep checking the site for rides in the Spring. Very snowy and 15 degrees this morning. No scooting this morning.
