With over 20 mixologists coming out to support Speed Rack DC it was an exciting night to be inside The Howard Theatre. Spirit vendors surrounded the stage as pre made cocktails jump-started the competition. The crowd eagerly watched in anticipation as the judges critiqued aspects of every single drink ranging from taste to presentation. Asking [...]
On a cold and windy day last month, we were asked to attend Capella DC‘s Thanksgiving Tasting. Thinking about turkey, stuffing, and cranberry in October may seem impossible but the thought of comforting food that day kept my attention more than TGIT (Gladiators know!) To my surprise, the group was extremely small as we were [...]
Nordic Week has commenced and the reviews have come back…Washingtonians are definitely interested. Chef Bart Vandaele known for his exquisite Belgian cuisine at Belga Cafe as well as B Too, shows that he is knowledgeable in Nordic flavors as well.

This weekend is the Great Taste of Tysons, a food and wine festival from Drink.Eat.Relax. We went and checked out the sights, sounds and tastes on the first day of the festival. We picked out three “must sees” that today’s attendees can’t miss out on:

St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated annually on March 17th. Every year, one can expect to find legions of green-clad revelers taking to the streets in search of beer, whiskey and merriment. However since St. Patrick’s Day will follow on a Monday, those celebrations will extend all weekend long and into [...]
We are three months into winter, and to say that it has been brutal would be an understatement akin to saying panda cubs are “kinda cute.” Winter 2014 has been long and historically rough. However, there are reasons to look on the bright side. Spring is just around the corner, bringing with it warmth and [...]
The new year is already a week old. Time sure does seems to fly when you’re frozen and miserable. If you made a resolution to stop drinking in 2014, stop reading right now. However, if you’re like me and you’ve resolved to continue to enjoy the nectar of the gods, you are in luck. January [...]
The holiday season is in full force! Thanksgiving and Black Friday fights have given way to Yuletide and eggnog. December is the month of giving, and there are plenty of very generous beer events this month. Grab a pint glass, clear your calendar, and make sure to end 2013 with a cold beer in your [...]
Happy November everyone. Welcome to the month of turkey, stuffing, and endless family drama. While that last bit should be reason enough to drink, this month has plenty of fantastic reasons to throw back a pint or four.
Here are the best beer events for November:
Flying Dog Vineyard Blonde Release Party – November 5: Head up to Frederick [...]
The government has shut down. Crazy us thinking that a legislative body elected to responsibly govern would actually do their jobs. I’m at the point where I officially have more faith in Miley Cyrus keeping her clothes on than I do in my leaders. Surely that qualifies as reason enough for having a drink (or [...]
