Upscale Dive Bars: This Would Be a Good Thing?
Pie: Recognizing that serving food out of an actual building gets you nowhere in D.C., Dangerously Delicious Pies will soon be serving their pies from the back of a moving vehicle. But should you be okay with eating pie under a roof, Monday-Thursday from 4PM-close, from their physical location on H Street NE, they offer two slices of savory pie, two slices of sweet pie and two drinks for 20 dollars.

- More Pig: Grimy beer/urine bars are supposed to be unpretentious places, but now even the best of them have started serving microbrews and a wide variety of pig products. WHEN WILL IT STOP? [Pharmacy Bar]
- Thursday, October 21: To mark the third anniversary of their Brazilian Night events, St. Ex is hosting a daylong celebration of all things Brazil, complete with caipirinhas, Brazilian food, and... Peroni. [Cafe St. Ex]
- Monday, October 25 through Tuesday, November 2: While everyone else is putting the finishing touches on their Christine O'Donnell costumes, Oyamel is praising the dead, because that's what the Messicans do for Halloween. It seems that dead Messicans also really like swiss chard and potato tacos. [Day of the Dead Festivities at Oyamel]
- New Food: Gentrification had yet to bring gourmet hot dogs to D.C., until now: ChiDogO's, a restaurant that serves Chicago-style hot dogs, just opened on 14th and U Streets NW and, perhaps more importantly, also serve Goose Island beers. Such news does not mean the end of burger and pizza places: Z Burger is looking to open in Columbia Heights and Pizzeria Paradiso just opened a third restaurant in Old Town Alexandria.
