18th Annual Taste of Georgetown Serves It Up Again
Heavenly fumes, smoke and laughter filled lower Georgetown as tasters gathered in droves on Wisconsin Avenue between M and K Streets for the 18th Annual Taste of Georgetown on Oct. 15 benefiting the Georgetown Ministry Center’s services to support the homeless. Visitors bought tickets, each good for one sampling, and then clamored for plates from each of the 28 food-serving vendors who had more demand than expected. The Plates ranged from roasted chicken shawarma sliders at Neyla’s booth to pumpkin whoopie pies, bee sting almond honey shortbread bars and brownies from Baked and Wired. The celebration also featured live music, face painting and balloon sculptures. The Washington City Paper Pavilion served alcoholic beverages. Many non-consumable goods were also present including Long and Foster Realtors as well as HOK|BGA design clinic and PNC Bank.
