This Week in D.C.: May 21-27

Well, we survived the rainstorm we thought would never end. We’re celebrating this week with extra fun foods and festivities. With a much needed holiday weekend around the corner, we are too excited to save all the fun until then, so here’s what’s happening this week in D.C.:

Taste of Adams Morgan is an annual neighborhood event celebrating its 6th year with creative tastes from the neighborhood’s best restaurants. Participating restaurants provide samples to hungry attendees who have purchased “taste” tickets. All proceeds benefit the nearly 50,000 individuals and families who will be served this year through Mary’s Center’s comprehensive healthcare, education, and social service program.

It’s a blast to explore new restaurants and try new menu items. There are a few specific dishes we’ve had recently, though, that we can’t seem to get out of our heads. Here are the dishes we can’t stop thinking about. Add these to your week’s agenda and you’ll know what we mean.

D.C. Harvest has an experiential cocktail program where you can taste and learn how to make three cocktails. The experience also comes with an appetizer. You can reserve your experience through their website and make an evening out to dinner a little more special. We made our way over to H Street to try it out, so you know what to expect.

Tonight’s the night for the 4th Annual EdibleDC Magazine’s Eat/Drink Local. This is one of our favorite parties every year and this year’s theme, “District of Color” is sure to be a hit! Each food and drink item at the booths in Longview Gallery will be matched to a Pantone color. Get more information on tickets, here.

Pop-Up Magazine, the acclaimed “live magazine” show, is coming back to Warner Theatre at 7:30pm. The magazine is created for a stage, a screen, and a live audience. Contributors, who range from Oscar-winning filmmakers to bestselling authors as well as emerging talent, tell never-before-told, multimedia stories. The night ends gathered around the bar with performers and audience members together.

Heirloom Catering presents The Spring Social, a celebratory event co-hosted with the ladies of EVOKE, as well as a top notch group of curated local creatives, to produce an impactful and inspiring festival of sorts centered around stylish seasonal food, live art and entertainment, themed design and amazing ambiance. Get tickets, here.

As if we could love Joselito any more, the black and white tiled wine bar in Capitol Hill offers an affordable happy hour, aptly named Hemingway Hour. On a cold, rainy Thursday night we stopped by for a drink, and here’s why you should, too.

If you’re sticking around this memorial day, you’re going to want to plan the weekend for you and your crew. There are tons of events this Monday, like City Tap House’s Shuckfest. You can enjoy lawn games outdoors on the patio, oyster specials, and ice-cold drinks to wash everything down. We also love their brunch. Read the review, here. 


Whaley’s is excited to announce that the Rosé Garden, an outdoor bar with sweeping river views in the heart of The Yard’s Park, is now open for the summer. The Rosé Garden will feature over ten different rosés, plus frozen drinks, high balls and beer. Chef Daniel Perron has created a special menu of snacks, including oysters on the half shell, smoked catfish rillette and ramp toast. The Rosé Garden is wrapped in tropical plants, with deco white metal tables and pink striped umbrellas designed by the highly acclaimed Edit Lab at Streetsense.

Dannah is our toughest critic. With a food and drink background, this Bitch brings her sophisticated opinion to the D.C. dining scene. Dannah is our D.C. editor and has all the restaurant intel. She's always game to try something new, but when it comes to brunch, she's looking for the classics done in an exceptional manner. French toast over pancakes, and bloodys over mimosas, always.
