Rain rain go away! It’s much more FUN to be wet on the Chattooga River participating in the upcoming Orlando Ski and Travel Club’s Blue Ridge July 31st rafting trip! For our second visit, we will again stay in a luxurious estate located directly on the Toccoa River with outdoor firepit and every imaginable amenity for entertainment inside the 10,000 sq ft estate! There will be hiking, white water rafting, elbow curls, fine home cooked dining! Then wrap that up with a night in historic downtown Savannah and a Ghost Tour, all included! It’ll be big fun and exciting!  https://orlandoskiclub.com/page-1848810

In addition to our Monthly 2nd Wednesday Social, we enjoyed a fun and delicious evening at the Meatball Stoppe with animated & entertaining Chef Isabella providing a live cooking demonstration and instruction. Followed by dining on her wonderfully delicious creations!

The Meatball Stoppe

Betsy Miller, OSTC Membership Director, hosted our May event at The Meatball Stoppe.  This restaurant and it's chef Isabella Morgia di Vacari was featured by Guy Fieri on the Food Network's hit show "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives" for good reason.  We were wined, dined, entertained, and learned a few great cooking tips at this cooking demonstration and dinner.  16 people attended, some long time club members and a great group of new faces.  Now I know why people attend this event again and again.  We made an amazing Creamy Tomato Basil Soup, chicken scallping, Farro salad with arugula chickpeas and feta, creamy polenta, a surprise desert, variety of Italian wines and expressor with Zabaglinone.  yum. Great fun.
