Ready for your weekly dose of food nirvana? We’ve got the District’s best events, #foodporn, weird news and more to push your gluttony to the belly-bursting max. From Beer Week to new menus and Julia Child’s birthday, we’ve got you covered…

This week in BYT food:

Upcoming food events:

  • FIRST OFF, Julia Child’s 101st birthday is tomorrow and you should make sure to check out some great specials around the city to celebrate. Head to Marcels for some delightful tarragon chicken or you could try the tasting menu at The Jefferson, OR make your way to the American History Museum to check out their Julia Child themed Food in the Garden event. (And in case you’ve forgotten, Smithsonian’s Museum of American History has her full kitchen on display.)
  • In honor of D.C. Beer Week, Meridian Pint will give free beer to the first five people to find their Lost Rhino mascot.
  • On Sunday, August 18th, District Doughnut is holding its first-ever pop-up event  at Qualia Coffee in Petworth. They’ll be pairing goods like Dulce de Leche and Brown Butter with Qualia’s roasts but make sure to get there early–the event starts at 8:00 a.m. and only lasts ’til the doughnuts are alllll gone. (Side Note–remember that time we spent an afternoon in the kitchen with them?)
  • Ripple’s Executive Chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley is cooking up a delicious four-course menu to help reach Fit For Hope fundraising goals. RSVP by email here.
  • On August 16th there’s a Jamba Juice Tweet-Up at the Dupont Circle location from 9:00-11:00 a.m.! Jamba’s 16-ounce smoothies will be $2 and early birds will receive free smoothies. RSVP on Twitter via #JambaDC.
  • And again, next month The Source’s Executive Chef Scott Drewno will host two Asian-themed cooking classes, with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society. Call or RSVP via email.
