Happy Birthday Andrea

Happy Birthday Andrea Roane.. one of my dearest friends in this world. We had an enchanting afternoon at Cafe Milano. The celebration was hosted by Gwen Russell and Franco Nuschese, the owner of the landmark of a restaurant. In the left wing guests which ranged from co-workers, best friends and community leaders raised a glass and shared Andrea “moments” over an amazing 5 course meal. Thanks to Monika Samtani for capturing the awesome moments below.. yes it appears like a game of “Where’s Andrea” but she’s the birthday girl so she’s allowed to be in all the pictures!

Dinner party and the pig

Nothing like some gourmet suckling pig wrapped in crackle to be a reason to congregate! I enjoyed hanging with women leaders in media and business at Art and Soul near Capitol Hill. Executive Chef Wes Morton wowed the crowd of friends with his 4 courses family style dinner. It included an heirloom melon salad and the milk fed pig with egglplant casserole. There was also a local cheese board with fresh honey comb. Apparently honey is the new thing to pair cheese with these days!
