GBA Warms Up at Expanded il Canale Ristorante


The Georgetown Business Association held its monthly reception Nov. 19 at the newly expanded il Canale Ristorante on 31st Street, just a few steps from the C&O Canal. GBA members and friends were there to talk about the November election results and to check out the restaurant’s added space, which once housed Cannon’s Seafood Market — and to get in from the cold.

Il Canale owner Joe Farruggio greeted the more than 100 guests with a great selection of food that included pizza, pasta, antipasta and cannoli. On hand were local politicians, designers, bankers and PR and media types as well as Italian Embassy staffers.

The next GBA get-together is a big one: the Annual GBA Holiday Party, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 12, at the Embassy of Ukraine at 3350 M St. NW and requires a government-issued ID at the door and an RSVP by 5 p.m., Dec. 9.
