Owned by a three-generation family of women, Rosie's A Taste of Italy relies on the Old-World recipes that Grandma Rosie brought with her from Italy. Joined in the kitchen by her daughter and granddaughter, Rosie prepares fresh pizza dough and hearty sauces every day. The oven-crisped pizzas and sandwiches come with an array of toppings and fillings, including spinach, salami, and peppers. The restaurant also draws crowds with its comedy nights on Friday and Saturday evenings. During the two-hour shows, local comedians work for laughs as diners sip house wine and ponder how many lightbulbs it takes to cross the road.
In August 2008, Tallahassee gained 6,000 square feet of dance space and a bunch of skilled dancers to fill it. Under the leadership of artistic director Henry Hernandez, the instructors of World Ballet help the next generation of dancers learn to leap, twirl, and avoid hurting gravity's feelings too badly. The performance arm of the organization brings to life classic ballets such as The Nutcracker and A Midsummer Night's Dream, as well as contemporary creations set to rock music.
Juan Ten, a native of Valencia who comes from a long line of culinary craftsmen, entices the senses with cooking demonstrations and live flamenco music for the roughly two-hour event. The genial gastronome specializes in paella, a signature dish of Spain that brings families and friends together around the giant pan from which the delectable dish is served. Juan re-creates the experience during a live demonstration as guests gather around the cooking site, an open wood fire that fills nostrils with the aromatic fragrances of roasted garlic, spices, and saffron rice. Ears remain attuned to the mellifluous melodies of master guitarist Silviu Ciulei, strumming the harmonious beats of flamenco music, while tongues stay entertained with the Spanish salad—a mix of lettuce, tomatoes, Spanish olives, and white tuna, splashed with olive oil and wine vinegars—and a complimentary glass of sangria. When the main course arrives, anticipating eaters relish in the tender meats, seafood, or vegetables resting atop a bed of saffron rice.
The Artist Series packs the stage with an array of world-renowned classical artists. Marvel at the dexterous digits and pedal-happy feet of acclaimed pianist Spencer Myer, graduate of Juilliard and first-prize winner of the 10th UNISA International Piano Competition in Pretoria, South Africa. The recently renovated Opperman Music Hall provides an intimate environment for enjoying Myer's majestic solo recital, which covers the works of Galuppi, Schumann, Beethoven, Liszt, and Granados. Ample free parking ensures fuss-free entry to the elegant event.
