But eating isn't the only thing on the agenda — even though there is a meatball contest. You can also expect grape stomping, bocce ball, live entertainment (from old school to new cool), cooking demonstrations, dancing, and local artisans displaying their wares. There's a suggested $5 donation at the door that benefits the University Village Association, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that helps keep Little Italy buzzin'. Now that's amore.
