From 5 p.m. to midnight this Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28 and 29, the Feast of Saint Rocco will be celebrated at Betta's Italian Oven. There will be live music, featuring The Diamond Jim Dews Band on Friday and Leroy Ellington and the E-Funk Band on Saturday. The Festival was planned in
conjunction with Xavier MBA course Entreprenership 311
"New Venture Planning," taught by Professor Joe Carter. Sam Seigle, a member of the class, stated that "the purpose of our class is to help businesses within the Xavier University community develop a business plan with the goal of helping launch the business endeavor." This festival is not the only
event Betta's is celebrating this weekend. The restaurant will also be previewing its new coffee and wine bar, Cafe Cornetti. According to a Betta's press release, Saint Rocco, who is Italy's patron saint, was a Frenchman who helped the sick on his pilgrimage to Italy. Betta's is celebrating his feast day, just like millions of Italians do every year. "Our group believes this festival is an excellent opportunity for Xavier University students, faculty and the Cincinnati community to come together in an Italian tradition to share memories of the past,
present and future," Siegle said. He added that they would like to make the festival an annual event. The press release also stated that the festival wants to "help bring together the best of Italian tradition and Cincinnati culture with the best pizza in the Queen City, drinks and live music for the entire Xavier University community." Admission is free, and food
and drink booths will offer Italian food items, beer and wine of varying costs. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Mezzo Mezzo Social Club Scholarship Fund.
