Tuesday, May 1: Club Social at Lavo inside the Palazzo Casino was good but a little different. The Casino sold the entire restaurant out to a convention and therefore the Social became a traveling event which moved upstairs to Grimaldi's Pizzeria. Pizza, wine, some more alcohol and great conversation were the hits of the evening. Thanks to everyone who attended
