Curbside Cookoff Kicks Off
October 7 and 8, the District’s most popular street vendors will converge at CityCenterDC for the two-day First Annual Curbside Cookoff. The event is being hosted by the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCRA), in conjunction with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Brightest Young Things, and the Downtown BID. 20 of DC’s favorite food trucks were invited to participate after a weeklong online voting process. Additionally, all who attend will have a chance to vote for their favorite on-site vendor via paper ballot and text messaging.
Selected vendors include Red Hook Lobster Truck, BBQ Bandidos, Curbside Cupcakes, Fry Captain, and Pleasant Pops. Flying Dog will also be sponsoring a happy hour beer garden after work both days. The event will be rounded out with music, graffiti art and several performances.
From 11:30 am to 2 pm Thursday, graffiti artists Tom Conlon and Decoy will be showing off their craft, and between 5 and 8pm djRBI will lead you on a Dance Party through the Decades. Friday will feature yoga artist Julie Eisenberg in the morning and a Farafina Kan dance demonstration that night. Swing by between 11am and 9 pm both days for good food and an even better time.
