Taste Test

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend and don’t necessarily need to remember much after that, the 6th Annual International Wine & Food Festival is happening at the new Convention Center on Saturday & Sunday, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. The tickets are a little pricey at $71/day, but from the line-up of exhibitors, programs and celebrity chefs, it looks worth the cost.

I’m actually volunteering my way in on both days. If you find yourself over that way, come by and see me at booth #603-A-1 with Apex/Bridgman Cellars. Tiffany is taking one of the tasting classes on Sunday so then we can test her next week about the difference between merlot and cabernet sauvignon.

I haven’t been to the new Convention Center yet, and I certainly can’t drive to a wine tasting (well, I can’t drive home), so any suggestions for dinner or post-wine fun over in that neighborhood?

    Well, if you’re willing to walk a block or two, there’s always RFD and Fado right around there for a beer or two.

    We ended up at District Chop House one night and Rosa Mexicano’s the other night. The Chop House was great – we felt very well fed and taken care of. I should have listened to the other reviews of Rosa Mexicano’s – it took over 1/2 hour from the time we finished eating until we had our check.

    Further complicating matters for dinner choices were the St. Patrick’s Day parade and the ACC which thoroughly jammed all eateries around the MCI Center.

    I did however find a good list of restaurants on the DC Convention Center web site complete with links, so that was helpful.
