Welcome to BYT’s newest “hot damn, how could I live without this” column, Eating Out. We’ll be highlighting one food or booze special event every night of the week. From the best happy hours in the city to the uber expensive $500 per person tasting menus, there is something good to eat or drink every single night in this city and we want to help you find it. And yes, we get the joke.
Hump Day got you down? Celebrate National French Press Day with P14’s specialty french press drinks on the patio on this beautiful Wednesday and kick off your Labor Day Weekend right. These large format cocktails are made with hand-pressed juices and house-made syrups and have classy names like “Summer Harvest” and “Clearly Refreshing.”
In the words of everyone’s favorite Snap filter, Thursday is Friday Jr. – celebrate by grabbing a house burger and boardwalk fries for less than $6 at this Adams Morgan gastropub. Keep it simple with the Classic burger or send yourself into a food coma with the Cheese-Stuffed Pork Belly Burger.
This Friday, swing by the Fairgrounds at Navy Yard to sample the best food from 13 of DC’s best food trucks at an event complete with live music and abundant booze. From Carmen’s Italian Ice to a gourmet hot dog truck, there’s something for everyone.
Drink the World Fest 2017 @ The Fairgrounds
Another day, another food and drink festival in Navy Yard. With more than 60 craft beer offerings, wine tastings, and all-day events, your ticket to Drink the World 2017 is your ticket around the world (of beer). Plus there are unlimited pours, so definitely come thirsty.
Keep your Labor Day day drinking streak going this Sunday at Hawthorne on U. This rooftop hang is complete with live music, $5 Bud Light tallboys, $5 Fireball shots, and $7 Tito’s mixed drinks. If brunch is more your speed, check out Hawthorne’s great bottomless deal.
Your week looks delicious.
