Moderno Italiano Festival

When: Thu., Oct. 4, 6-10 p.m. 2012

When the pizza restaurant Hot Italian decided to expand from its original Sacramento location and set up shop at Emeryville's Public Market (5959 Shellmound St., Emeryville), the East Bay didn't just get the gift of its thin-crusted, inventively topped, sneakily addictive pizzas, but also an invitation to (an abridged version of) its signature annual event, the ModernoItaliano festival. The East Bay iteration, which happens on Thursday, Oct. 4, features food and wine tastings, Fiat test drives (ideally before the wine), and a bike-in screening of the 2011 comedy Gianni e le Donne (in Italian with subtitles, naturally). Viva Italia! 6-10 p.m., free. HotItalian.net
