AMWA NorCal Virtual Aperitif Hour

Please join our chapter AMWA NorCal for a Virtual Aperitif Hour.

Aperitif: The appetizers of the spirits world. The word comes from the Latin aperire, “to open up,” as in to open up your palate and prep your digestive system for a fine meal. Aperitifs can include Campari, champagne, dry sherry, gin, or vermouth. An aperitif is often accompanied by a savory snack.

So prepare yourself a Campari and soda (or your aperitif of choice) and a plate of charcuterie, or a bowl of Marcona almonds, and join us via Zoom, Wednesday, July 29, from 6:30 to 7:30 PM, for some conversation (not restricted to medical writing) and networking.
