Citizens Association of Georgetown (CAG) held their annual black tie Gala at the Embassy of the Russian Federation on October 26. Russian Ambassador and Mrs. Sergey Kislyak lavishly hosted "Put on the Glitz," serving Russian caviar and vodka, followed by a buffet dinner and dancing to the music of the Kool Kats band.
The evening’s honorary chairs included Senator and Mrs. Roy Blunt, Senator John Kerry and Teresa Heinz, Senator and Mrs. Joseph Lieberman, The Honorable Selwa Roosevelt, Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia, Mark Ein and Hugh Newell Jacobsen.
Over 350 residents, businesses, organizations and government leaders joined in celebrating CAG’s mission of historic preservation and improving the life of the community. Gala Co-Chairs were Nancy Taylor Bubes, Michele Evans and Patrice Miller.
Georgetown could have had a new free-form piece of statuary on 31st Street Friday.
But unintentional artistry was avoided when il Canale got a pallet full of Italian flour off the sidewalk and inside before the rainstorm hit.
Instead of attracting visitors for puzzling art, the flour will be used to make true Neapolitan-style thin-crust pizza.
il Canale Executive Chef Antonio Biglietto greeted the bags of flour which came by boat from the Port of Naples and truck to the ristorante and pizzeria at 1063 31st Street NW. A pallet lasts about three weeks.
il Canale uses flour certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, the Italian organization which approves all ingredients and baking methods for true Neapolitan pizza made any place in the world.
il Canale adheres to those standards, as witnessed by the association’s logo right beside the front door. (www.ilcanale.com)
