festa italiana

Last night was the kick-off for Festa Italiana. We received some free tickets from an attorney here at the firm so a whole bunch of us headed out for the evening. Typical of any Milwaukee Festival...it's all about the food and beer, but that's cool too right? We ate a LOT! I had fried ggplant strips, bruchetta, and tirimisu. It was nice to hang out pretend to be in Italy again.
We saw a group of flag throwers perform. I'd never seen anything like it, but it reminded me of my baton twirling years. Well...the men were strong Italians, and they were wearing knit leggings...but other than that, it reminded me of baton twirling :-)
Here are some pictures:
