Glendale’s El Morfi Grill was the setting for the evening mixer of the Glendale Latino Association (GLA) held in January. Some 60 members and their guests dined on the restaurant’s signature Argentinian dishes served buffet style.  

Sipping, supping and schmoozing were the order of the night. For $15 per GLA member and $20 per guest, participants got more than expected. Besides buffet and beverages, an opportunity drawing offered fine wines at a bargain basement price per raffle ticket.  

Mic in hand, GLA President Anita Quinonez Gabrielian assured, “We are growing.”
