Gelato Social August 17, 6pm

Join us on Wednesday, August 17 from 6pm onward for Tuscan-style celebration of summer and all things gelato. Master gelataio Sandro Paolini of SE Division Street's Pinolo Gelato will debut a delicious new gelato flavor exclusive to Burrasca: zabaione, the traditional marsala-infused egg custard cream dear to Italian hearts. He'll be on hand to chat all things gelato, along with our chef Paolo Calamai. We'll also be featuring Pinolo Gelato in our boozy, alpine amaro float, Messner Climbs McKinley, as well as serving up a unique Alkermes float (Alkermes being a traditional and ancient Florentine elixir). Pinolo's fabulous lemon sorbetto will be served in a killer grappa-charged sgroppino cocktail: an irresistible summer quencher.

Servings (three scoops) of zabaione gelato will be $7 for the Social and $8 on our dessert menu in the following weeks. Enjoy our amaro float at $1 off regular price. In addition, there will be prizes: just bring your phone and be ready to share your #GelatoSocialPDX photos on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to win Burrasca and Pinolo gelato treats and gift certificates!

No reservations needed, and no need to purchase other food items or a full meal; you're welcome to show up and simply enjoy the gelato and drinks :-) We're proud to collaborate with fellow Tuscan Sandro—look for more Pinolo-Burrasca events in the future!
