Recap: Veg Fest, Arts on Foot (And Upcoming Fall Festivals)

Last weekend, this bitch and her beau had a busy little Saturday. Following my 20-mile training run (donate to help me save the puppies, here), we headed to Veg Fest, where we enjoyed Amsterdam Falafel, Sticky Fingers cupcakes, coconut water and other earth-and-animal friendly foods.

Then, to Nationals Stadium to experience some good old American spirit—beer and baseball— in honor of September 11. It was Heroes Day, and a great place to be to remember America’s fallen heroes.

Later, Arts on Foot, which was equal parts food and art fair. Chinatown’s wealth of restaurants offered small tasting portions for around $3 each. I love being able to try bite-size bits from lots of places. Some of our samplings included:

Shrimp appetizers from Ping Pong.

Pork banh mi and banana-caramel bread pudding from Oya (I die).

And, most notably, a giant vat of paella from Jaleo (wow!).

Looking to celebrate Fall with a fun outdoor festival? The D.C. area has lots coming up, here are our picks:

Sept. 8- Oct. 3: Rosa Mexicana Mexican Chocolate Festival. Do we hear chocolate chip banana cake?
Sept. 18: H Street Festival. H Street rocks. There’s a fashion show, and food, we’re there!
Sept. 18 & 19: Virginia Wine Festival. Two words: wine.festival. We went last year, it was a blast.
Sept. 25: Barracks Row Fall Festival, Capitol Hill. Cotton candy, petting zoo, magic shows! Perhaps we can get our faces painted, too.
Oct. 3: Turkish Festival. I loved the culture and cuisine in Istanbul, this is the next best thing to flying back.
Oct. 23-24. Green Festival. Organic beer and wine tastings, 100% commitment to offset their electricity emissions.

Happy Fall, Bitches!
