Pizza Making

Are you an awesome pizza maker? Go head-to-head with your competitors to see who can make the best pizza dough. You can stretch it on the table or even toss it up in the air!


Grape Stomping

Grab a partner and try grape stomping. How quickly could you start to make wine with your significant other or best friend?

Pasta Eating

Pasta eating is a favorite cultural activity for Italians. Why not speed things up and see who is the fastest pasta eater of them all?
