Georgetown’s media, business and political leadership turned out pre-New Year’s to wish a happy birthday to Wells Fargo exec and Georgetown Business Association Vice President Rokas Beresniovas.

House music and a florescent disco ball amped up the quiet atmosphere at the City Tavern Club.

When it was built in 1796, the City Tavern served not only as a traditional lodging house but also as the meeting place for Georgetown’s governing body, the Georgetown Corporation.

Georgetown’s current civic leadership updated that tradition Wednesday, raising a glass to an indefatigable friend of Georgetown, universally known as “Rokas.” We wish him a glorious 25th birthday, and many more!
