Maserati of Baltimore is sure to be hosting a relaxing and friendly open house for this after hours celebration.
CELEBRATE THE 135th RUNNING OF THE KENTUCKY DERBY AND THEN SOME
Besides the occasion of the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby–the obvious party theme–as a club, we’ll be celebrating the return of Sales Star Alfred Ramos to Maserati of Baltimore to join the team again with GM Jack Davis, the new launch of www.maseratiofbaltimore.com, and Kae Davis new “Baltimore Car Shopping Examiner” journalist position with the new local news platform www.examiner.com.

CRUISE IN FOR AN IMPROMPTU CAR SHOW OR JUST BRING THE MINI-VAN AND THE FAMILY
Jack Davis says he’ll have plenty of on-site parking at Maserati of Baltimore that afternoon and evening for cruise-in show cars or tailgaters outdoors. There are 60+ spaces for sunny weather conditions, and can easily accommodate have 200+ people indoors in the event of rain. Any folks who wish to bring a showcase vehicle that need to arrange indoor parking for the event should contact Jack Davis directly at firstname.lastname@example.org (especially if visiting form out of town). The party will be an informal gathering of friends and ladies Derby Hats are welcome. The facility is handicapped access friendly.
If you choose to bring an appetizer dish or beverage to share with the group in addition to your own meals, snacks or goodies we are encouraging folks to bring enough for themselves + 8-10 servings. If we have a small crowd (under 30), we’ll have enough for everyone to enjoy fully and if we have a larger crowd (50+), then we’ll do smaller appetizer portions so everyone can enjoy sharing. If you know what you’ll be bringing, post a little confirmation comment on the RSVP thread wall so everyone knows and send a little note to email@example.com so we can make sure the right tables and serving appointments are ready as necessary.

Regarding events notifications of a professional sort, be sure you have added Jack Davis and Kae Davis as friends on LinkedIN. We often use LinkedIN as a resource to find vendors, sponsors, and special guests at Italianizzato Club Events. We also host a club there in their online groups section called “Playing In Traffic”. Now that we’ve built the group to a healthy number of participants from the car world across the nation, we’re able to keep people connected with good folks who love Italian vehicles and car racing no matter what their business or region.

BECOME A MEDIA PARTNER OR SPONSOR OF AN ITALIANIZZATO CLUB EVENT
Regarding how to get involved as an event or media partner for the promotion of any event: if you are a small business owner and would like to set up a vendor table for the day of the event, we encourage you to contact us. We’ve asked vendors to be on site and set up early to work with walk in traffic throughout the day in order to promote attendance at the event. We’re encouraging those folks to share an eblast invitation to their clients this week. Though we do not expect this to be one of our normal huge events (as it is an informal occasion), it is a fun way to spend the day and to have pictures of your trade wares or art taken alongside some amazingly pristine Maseratis, Lamborghinis, and Ferraris and to meet those other club members who participate with charity benefits and other trade shows throughout the region. Email email@example.com for more information. We’re also delighted to have social networking media partners credited for helping promote any event as well.
CAR CLUBS, ONLINE EVENT BOARDS, AND FORUMS
Last but not least, if you are a member of a car club or online forum, please create a thread for this get together and help us invite the public. It will be a great spot to post pictures after the event, and a way to build guest attendance for future events. With so many Italianizzato events promoting various wonderful charities and so often including all ages of family, coming to our events is a great way to promote a stronger and more connected sense of community (especially by being able to share event experiences with close personal friends and family).
COME OUT, COME OUT, WHEREVER YOU ARE
It’s Spring. Now that the world is thawing out, it’s time to resume the tradition of visiting with car and motorcycle club friends again.
Thank you all for your participation, assistance growing our Italianizzato group, and for your unwavering love for all things Italian. We’re looking forward to seeing you again soon. Until then, as always, stay safe, live well, and PLAY IN TRAFFIC.
The Davis Family
