As mentioned in my earlier post, the Pig & Pickle was host to the Scottsdale International Film Festival Fundraiser “Movie and Mangia” on March 24.  Approximately 50 people gathered to view a screening of an Italian film at the Pig & Pickle, 2922 North Hayden Road. We ate lunch and tasted a number of tasty italian dishes.  After lunch we gathered in the “screening” room to view an Italian film with a post-film discussion with Nick Salerno.  Following are photos of the wonderful and tasty items Pig & Pickle prepared for the attendees at the Fundraiser. If you haven’t already dined at Pig & Pickle, please place it on your list of “must eat” restaurants.  Oh, Pig and Pickle is open until 1:00 a.m. on the weekend.  Enjoy and patronize local eateries!

This is Wonder Woman; she was everywhere, serving the many wonderful dishes prepared in the Pig & Pickle kitchen, and she provided us with a “synopsis” of every dish placed on the table. Fantastic!
