Monza’s Martini Wows at VWAA Retreat

Last weekend, VF&N attorneys Brett Callahan, Karen Cohen, and Kris Spitler attended the Virginia Women Attorneys Association (VWAA) annual retreat, where Karen and Kris won the cocktail making competition. Their secret? A little help from our friends over at Monza in Old Town Manassas who taught them the recipe for their Double Espresso Martini. Thanks to them, Karen and Kris wowed the judges and the other attorneys at the VWAA retreat! Another weekend highlight from the retreat included the cupcake contest – where contestants were judged not only on their baking ability but also on their oral defense of the culinary creations. Who says lawyers aren’t fun?

Virginia Women Attorneys Association

The annual retreat of the VWAA brings together female attorneys in the Commonwealth for a weekend of building professional friendships that allow women in the industry to support each other. Brett Callahan is the President of the Prince William Chapter of the Virginia Women Attorneys Association where she plans and coordinates events and programs that bring together female attorneys in Prince William County through networking, professional development, and community service. In addition to advancing the professions of women in the legal industry, the VWAA is dedicated to promoting the interests of women in Virginia under the law and public policy.


Monza is an Italian bistro-style bar and restaurant located on the corner of Battle Street and Center Street in Historic Old Town Manassas. They have great food and drinks, with specials everyday. We suggest you try their Double Espresso Martini, or another one of their signature cocktails, for yourself! (21+ of course).
