Dining: Luciano's - New Year's Day Brunch (also on Sundays)

We had brunch at Lucino's today with the Single Volunteers. It has been an annual tradition since the inception of Single Volunteers to have a New Year's Day Brunch. We've been at Luciano's for 3 of those 6 years.

Luciano's is a great Italian restaurant with 2 locations inCalgary, one in the North West near the Foothills Hospital, and the other in the South West on MacLeod Trail. Both serve Sunday Brunch, but only the MacLeod Trail location has New Year's Brunch. We find it to be reasonably priced with a great deal of variety in salad items, breakfast items, desserts, roast beef and ham and all of the fixings to go with all of the above. A favorite is the chocolate fountain which flows with Callebaut milk chocolate and melons to dip in it. You can smell the chocolate from the parking lot.

As always it was wonderful to visit with the Single Volunteers folks who joined us. We heard and shared heartwarming stories of recent volunteer events including "The Magic of Christmas" and "Operation Christmas Child".
