Taste of Georgetown: Ready on K Street, Sept. 13
The Taste of Georgetown is back for its 21st year, Saturday, Sept. 13 at a new location on the Georgetown waterfront (K Street between Wisconsin Avenue and Thomas Jefferson Street).
Expect a plethora of food, fun and music all brought to you, courtesy of the Georgetown Business Improvement District and a handful of sponsors, including Long & Foster, Whole Foods, Bank of Georgetown and PNC.
The main attraction is, of course, the food. Dean & Deluca, Luke’s Lobster, I-Thai, Malmaison, Rialto, Filomena Ristorante, Tackle Box, Thunder Burger and many more will be there, offering two small signature dishes each. Dishes cost $5 for one or $20 for five.
The event menu is enough to get your mouth watering well in advance of the event. In addition, there will be a competition a la “Iron Chef” between some of Georgetown’s best chefs, challenging them to create a unique dish with specified ingredients. Baked & Wired, on the other hand, will be hosting a cupcake-eating competition. At the Pinstripes station, kids will be able to play bocce ball, hula hoop, get their faces painted and participate in balloon-animal-making. Meanwhile, adults can enjoy alcoholic beverages in the Craft Beer & Wine Tasting Pavilion, where single drink tickets go for $4 and packs of three for $10.
Parents and kids alike can enjoy live country and bluegrass music brought to you by Gypsy Sally’s. Bands playing include Human Jukebox Country, Letitia Van Sant & the Bonafides and Justin T Rawick and the Common Good.
All proceeds from the event go towards the Georgetown Ministry Center and its services to aid the area’s homeless. Don’t miss out on After Taste Happy Hour, where event-goers can keep the party going with deals on food and drinks at some of Georgetown’s best restaurants.
