Oct. 26-27 Near The Residences at Eastern Market: Taste of DC!

If you find yourself craving a pumpkin ale on these crisp autumn days, here’s some good news. Taste of DC boasts the biggest beer garden anywhere in the region, and it’s returning to Audi Field on October 26th and 27th — just moments from your Capitol Hill apartment.

The even better news is that craft beer is only a part of what Taste of DC has to offer: The tastings also include top-notch cuisine! True to its name, Restaurant Row will host a whole bevy of chefs from local eateries, more than 50 in total. That means you’ll surely be able to find bites that appeal to your taste buds, whether you’re into international fare or classic comfort food. As you sip and nosh your way through the festival, don’t forget to check out the local artisan market and the live music and culinary demos, which will unfold across two stages at Taste of DC. Admission is free, but you can buy a “TasteBand” to load up with “Taste Tokens” if you want to eat and drink.
