Your fellow NOTA members spent the first half hour chatting away, totally oblivious to the table awaiting them. NOTA’s Holiday Party at the Brio Tuscan Grille in Legacy Village boasted over seventeen members. Where else could you learn the best location for authentic Italian goods (Galucci’s Italian Food Market in Cleveland’s Midtown Corridor)? Thank you, Helene and Phil. Elizabeth Cusma and Oliver Renfrew regaled listeners with stories from a six-month sojourn in Morocco. Svetlana Ball wins the prize for traveling the greatest distance from Columbus.
Kent grad students Rebecca Solana and Brian Wiegand learned how to network and market by rubbing shoulders with Claudia Mendizabal and others. Not to mention the fine table laden with luscious food from the kitchen and gift bags prepared by Vitaliy Plinto. No one walked away empty-handed.
These are reasons to support and attend the next NOTA event. Jill Sommer will present on blogs in Columbus on March 10, 2012 along with a luncheon and tentative museum visit. Keep your eyes on this blog for more information. See you then.
