It was hot on Saturday. The kind of hot that makes you want to sit in front of a fan all day and drink ice water. The kind of hot that makes you never want to leave your bed for the rest of your life because any sort of physical exertion is only going to make you hotter. We totally understand if you succumbed to those feelings. D.C. summers are a true nightmare and it’s a miracle we ever leave our homes ever, but the brave ones, the courageous ones, who were able to make it out to Wunder Garten, were treated to a meaty celebration the likes of which this city has never seen.
Some of this countries best jerky vendors descended onto our little slice of turf grass for a day full of amazing dried meats, fantastic bands, and so much more. It was worth the severe case of meat sweats.
We’d like to thank Oberto, Krave, The New Primal, Vermont Smoke + Cure, Tanka, Wild Zora, Dundalk Dan, District Jerky, Grayson Natural, Greenheart Juice Co., JerkFace Jerky, Crabby J Spice, Meatcrafters, and Ayoba-Yo for filling us with delicious meats and The Cookie Jar DC, Apinya Thai Food Co., Milk Cult, La Colombe, Capital Candy Jar, and Chompz for filling us with non-jerky foods and drinks.
