★~ Linguine Day:
Linguine (often misspelled “Linguini”) is a long, flat, narrow type of pasta most common in seafood or pesto dishes such as linguine alle vongole (“linguine with clams”). Linguine, which means “little tongues” in Italian, originates from the Liguria region of Italy. Have a favorite linguine dish? Serve it tonight in honor of National Linguine Day!
★~ Felt Hat Day:
When a man wears a hat these days, it’s likely to be a baseball cap, a ski cap or maybe one of those trendy little fedoras with the skinny brims. But it wasn’t always that way, of course. To celebrate felt hat day, El Morno, will share about a Chicago hat maker below under Good to Know.
★~ Make a Hat Day:
Paper plates, ribbon, glitter (for the brave), glue, and lots of bric-a- brac and doo-dad’s makes this a fun project for kids. A fancy hat is fun or perhaps a hat for pirates day which will be celebrated on September 19!
