Increased Availability of Lobster, Beer and Bourbon In DC a Very Good Thing

  • Saturday, May 1: The Kentucky Derby is a very important sporting/drinking event for certain Americans. And these Americans who enjoy drinking gallons of bourbon while watching horses go 'round in circles, they should go to Acadiana on Saturday night for the Derby watch party where there will be specials on mint juleps and traditional Derby day dishes.

  • Saturday, May 1: It's taste season! What does this mean? Restaurants all over town will soon be offering "tastes" (bigger than a sample, but smaller than a real meal) of their food for semi-exorbitant amounts of money. But it's worth it because the food is good and when will you ever have the opportunity to try every restaurant in town, which is a must-do, right? The "Taste of 8th," a sampling of food from restaurants on Barracks Row, is this Saturday from 1-4PM. Tickets are $5 per taste, or 5 tastes for $20. [Taste of 8th]
  • Tuesday, May 4: When you drink beer with someone who knows a thing or two about beer, the beer tastes better, you grow more chest hair and life as you know it improves tenfold. These all fine reasons as to why you should join the Beerspotter columnist from the Washington City Paper at Granville Moore's for his Spring Beer Dinner: five courses and six beer pairings for $65.

  • New Food: Former Redskin Fred Smoot is supposedly going to open up a Waffle House at 14th and U, and what was Jack's Restaurant is now a fine-dining Turkish establishment called Agora. [DCist, Agora via Top Shelf]
  • New Food Trucks: Praise be to Jesus, you can now get lobster roll anytime you want it thanks to a new food cart from Red Hook Lobster that chose to open in DC and NOT in New York, final proof that the black president has made DC the coolest city on earth; El Floridano, a converted postal truck that serves Cuban sandwiches as well as banh mi, is also now roaming the streets of DC.

  • Food to look forward to: Biergarten Haus, the much anticipated beer garden in the Atlas District, is slated to open May 7; Buddha Bar, a super trendy night club, is opening May 8; Ted's Bulletin, a comfort food joint from the owners of Matchbox, will be opening any day now; And 'We, the Pizza," Chef Spike's next culinary adventure, will be opening towards the end of May.
