But Will There Still Be Pig Roasts In a Fenty-Less DC?
Wednesday, September 15: It's a new a day in DC, but if there's one thing (most) Washingtonians will always love, it's their precious food trucks. Now it's time to figure out which food truck is the best food truck: Brightest Young Things, along with DCRA and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, is hosting a Food Truck Cook-off October 7 and 8 at the Old Washington Convention Center. To prep for this holy event, BYT is hosting a Kick-off party tonight at Chinatown Coffee from 6-8PM. [Curbside Cook-off 2010, Cook-off Kick-off Happy Hour]
- Wednesday, September 15 and Thursday, September 16: Gather ye papers, it's Mexican Independence Day! Yay for sombreros, margaritas, and Dos Equis beer! To celebrate, Rosa Mexicana is offering a special Mexican Independence day menu. [Rosa Mexicana]
- Friday, September 17: Whole Foods has spent the last 30 years convincing people that they must buy organic food, and that organic food is best when purchased at Whole Foods. To celebrate 30 years of organic bliss, Whole Foods is throwing itself a birthday party complete with Mariachi bands, and cupcakes and cookies made from delicious wholesome ingredients.

- Saturday, September 18: If you're not spending Saturday starving and atoning for your sins, go to H Street for the H Street Festival. There will be a pie eating contest, a sandwich eating contest, and a pleasant sounding tattoo competition. Oh, and Wonkette's own Liz Glover will be showing off her Lady Gaga-like yoga moves on a stage somewhere on H Street, too. [H Street Festival]
- Saturday, September 25: As it is written: no matter the season, no self-respecting urban city dweller should ever, EVER have to go a week without eating pig. Well-aware of this, the bar 19th is hosting a Big Ass Pig Roast next Saturday from 12-6PM. They will be roasting THREE whole pigs and offering drafts for $3 and beer buckets for $20. And here's your obligatory charity element: 5% of proceeds from the event go to Miriam's Kitchen. Tickers are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. [DC Pig Roast]
- New Food: Connecticut Avenue is now home to a new restaurant and, imagine that, it doesn't serve gourmet hamburgers. And what would Adams Morgan be without mediocre Chinese food? [Casa Nonna, Wok and Roll via Prince of Petworth]
