The Georgetown Business Association, the nonprofit dedicated to helping and promoting local businesses, mixed and mingled April 19 amid the rows of bottles of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar (and light fare) at the Georgetown Olive Oil Co. at 1524 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Owners Emil and Hristina Merdzhanov greeted GBA members and guests as they explained the different kinds of products. Where is the best olive oil from? Spain. The one-and-a-half-year-old business, between Cafe Bonaparte and Little Birdies and near the George Town Club, will be opening a second location at National Harbor.
Also on hand were Greg Miller and Sam Palino of Solar Coop, which helps to arrange solar energy set-ups and sharing for property owners. Wrapping up the Earth Day theme was Gloria Garrett of the Rose Park Farmers Market, which opens May 3.
