Prepare Your Bellies for the Taste of Georgetown this Saturday

Ready your palates because the  21st annual Taste of Georgetown returns to DC this Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Rally your family and friends for this outdoor epicurean event that will include signature dishes from 35 Georgetown restaurants. 

Taste of Georgetown is one of my favorite days of the year when Washingtonian's can stroll down Wisconsin Avenue (sans traffic) and pop over to the newly renovated boardwalk for an afternoon of foodie fun. Participating restaurants include 1789, Baked & Wired, Bandolero, Georgetown Cupcake, the new Grill Room at the Capella, Pinstripes, Luke's Lobster, Café Bonaparte, Malmaison, Tony & Joe's and many more. See the full list and dishes to be served from each restaurant  HERE

Guests will also enjoy a  beer and wine pavilion,  music by Gypsy Sally’s, an Iron Chef-style Chef Showdown and a giant cupcake-eating competition from Baked & Wired where guests will attempt to eat a three pound cupcake in under 3 minutes.

Local wine and brews poured will include Paradise Springs, Barboursville, Magic Hat, Pacifico, Strongbow, Chesterfield Ale, Sam Adams, Angry Orchard and more. And all of you fashionistas be sure to pop over to the merchant tent with wares and art from Georgetown retailers All We Art, Reddz TradingJ. McLaughlin and Key Bridge Boat House. The event benefits the Georgetown Ministry Center’s services for the homeless and is open to the public. 

Tickets are $5 for one tasting and $20 for five tastings (online pre-sale only). Craft Beer and Wine Pavilion tickets are $10 for three drinks (online pre-sale only), and $4 for one tasting. CLICK HERE to learn more and purchase tickets.
