Dog Tag Bakery Celebrates Grand Opening Saturday
Dog Tag Bakery invites Georgetowners and visitors to celebrate its grand opening this Saturday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to noon. Started by Father Rick Curry, the bakery is a social enterprise that supports veterans in a number of ways, including through a work-study program that provides wounded veterans with a high-quality business education in the kitchen and through classes at Georgetown University.
Curry and co-founder Constance Milstein said in a statement, "Dog Tag Bakery blends our passion for supporting veterans with business, entrepreneurship and baking. We hope to create a supportive environment so that the men and women who have given so much to their country can find success in a new and enriching chapter in their lives."
The event will feature a bread breaking ceremony in lieu of a ribbon cutting. Patrons can support veterans and the bakery by donating $250 and adding their custom-made dog tag to the bakery's chandelier, or by using the hashtag #kneadtoserve on social media accounts.
The bakery, at 3206 Grace St. NW, is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. during the week and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.
