Jeffrey T Short, a Georgetown native, spent his younger years growing up in the triangle of southern Georgetown. Once, of the tender age of 16 Jeff cut his teeth on the counter at the original location of Nicola Pizza(the one with the train) for a wonderful 15 year run. He then started what has become an awesome run with Arenas in Georgetown where in the beginning of 2016 he became the General Manager of that location. When he is not watching in awe as planes take flight and taking care of customers, he prefers the warmth provided by Family, sports, cars, and Whiskey.
