Every year, I feel like my weekends get shorter and shorter. Maybe I just crave more sleep the older I get; maybe I just can’t bar-hop like I used to. Regardless, I think we all wish there was an extra day between Saturday and Sunday. Especially because Washington is now home to so many crave-worthy restaurants, there’s hardly enough time to try them all.
If you’re hard-pressed for time like me, looking for a fun date night, or simply a new way to explore the D.C. dining scene with your friends, mark your calendars for this year’s Dine-N-Dash event on June 7.
Last year, we ate ourselves right into a food coma at Dine-N-Dash, a one night culinary exploration of 30 of the best restaurants and food trucks from Penn Quarter to the 14th Street corridor, hosted by one of our favorite D.C.-based chefs, José Andrés. No wallets, no lines, just you, celebrity chefs, and Instagram-worthy bites. For $125, or the cost of one night out at a hot restaurant in D.C., you’ll enjoy four hours of endless food and drinks at each participating restaurant, which will be closed exclusively for the event.
The gluttonous night benefits World Central Kitchen, Chef José Andrés’ charity which develops smart solutions to hunger and poverty worldwide.
To help guide your foodie adventure, we’ve mapped out a few of our favorite destinations included on the 14th Street stretch of the event. So, swing by for brunch to get yourself amped up for Dine & Dash! Space is limited and selling out fast, so purchase your tickets and we’ll see you there!
