Dine-N-Dash: Penn Quarter

Last month, we curated a list of our favorite 14th Street restaurants on the upcoming Dine-n-Dash map. Now, we’re heading over to Penn Quarter to dish on our go-to destinations that are not to be missed. Swing by for brunch before the event on June 7, to mentally prepare yourself for the foodie event of the year that is Dine-N-Dash. Space is limited and selling out fast, so purchase your tickets and we’ll see you there!
