Please join the Washington Network Group when we convene our next WNG Networking Reception on Wednesday, April 12, organized so that our Members and guests may "gather, grip, and grin" for shameless networking purposes. We will celebrate the evening Brazilian style!


Our venue for this special event is Fogo de Chão (pronounced "fo-go de shoun"). This beautiful newly-opened Brazilian restaurant offers its menu in the churrasco style, the Gaucho way of roasting meats over pits of open fire. We have privatized the second floor for this reception. The venue is located across the street from the Old Post Office Building, one block from the Federal Triangle Metro Station (Orange & Blue lines). Street and garage parking available.

Staying for dinner? We recommend that guests who may stay on for dinner make their personal reservations directly with the restaurant, in advance: 202-347-4668.
