13 Sep RECAP: Celebrate Ferragosto at Aperitivo Tuesday on 8/16/16
Ferragosto is an Italian holiday observed on August 15 that celebrates the end of the harvest season and the enjoyment of its fruits. It is also known as the period around mid-August in which Italians are take extended vacations to the beach.
Since we couldn’t hold our celebration on a beach in Italy, we chose the posh rooftop lounge at Dream Hotel Midtown instead. PhD Terrace at the Dream holds a weekly Italian themed happy hour, Aperitivo Tuesday, which we were happy to join.

Until next time Ferragosto…
