Toccolana Club reopens today after shutdown because of COVID


Like any good spocker when faced with an obstacle in its way, the Toccolana Club, 1412 E. Dominick St., is back, reopening this morning after closing for more than a month due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the club’s Facebook page, all league play and Wednesday lunches had been suspended until the club could reopen. While the path has been cleared for several club activities to resume, some activities remain on hold.

“We will not be accepting any reservations for private parties or events until further notice,” said the announcement.

“We apologize for any inconvenience, but given the renewed COVID-19 threat, the rise in local cases, the vulnerability of our membership, and our interest in protecting the community, the executive members felt that this was the best course of action.”

The Toccolana Club is renowned both locally and internationally for its authentic Italian cuisine, its local bocce leagues and events and for the annual World Series of Bocce. The club was also forced to cancel the 2020 World Series of Bocce as a result of the pandemic.
