WASHINGTON – Hungry for an exciting summer weekend? Don’t let the heat — and looming chance for potential thunder storms — keep you inside. There’s plenty going on in the D.C. area, including live music, food and film events.
International film fans will not be disappointed this weekend. The Mexican Cultural Institute will show “Visa to Paradise” on Friday, June 28, as part of the Iberoamerican Film Festival.
Food fanatics have a full-plate this weekend. Pearl Dive Oyster Palace will throw its final Crawfish Boil of the season. Plenty of Louisiana crawfish and Southern sides — think cornbread and pies — will be served family style.
On Saturday, June 30 the D.C. Latin Flavor Fest will takeover the Fairgrounds at Half Street to celebrate Latin food, music and dance.
Eating for a good cause is taken to a whole new level at this weekend’s Brainfood Burger Battle on Sunday, June 30. Some of the area’s most beloved chefs will attempt to make the best burger in a competition that benefits D.C. teens.
