Amics i amigues de Kp,
un any més us convidem a la tradicional Calçotada de Kan Pasqual, un espai per retrobar-nos després del llarg hivern i compartir una mica de catxondeo plegats.
Com sempre, us suggerim que porteu quelcom de picar, beguda o postre, que nosaltres farem la paella i uns calçots de l´hort.
Si no veniu molt tard, podeu participar del vermut i de l´enfilada de calçots. I a la tarda, partidet de futbol i guitarreo si porteu instrument.
Us esperem, i si doneu senyals de fum millor per calcular l’ arròs.
