Cocktails on Via Veneto

22 Jun

A lovely Italian tradition is to serve some sort of snack with your cocktail or wine. Whether at 11:00AM, 3:00PM, or 10:00PM, you’ll get at least a bowl of potato chips, often peanuts or a spicy/salty snack mix, and sometimes tiny sandwiches or pizza bites.

We enjoyed this “guest” that swept in to enjoy a few peanuts as soon as the couple abandoned table next to ours.

Tha waiter didn’t think this was nearly as funny as we did. The pigeon downed about 20 peanuts in less than 30 seconds.

      No such thing, Kim, no such thing. In between we do actually work, keep house, and cook. 🙂
