Food.Fun.Stuff: Out and About (DC)

>>>Tequila Celebration- Starting March 1- 14, 2010, Oyamel Cocina Mexicana will celebrate the 3rd Annual Tequila & Mezcal Festival. During these two weeks there will be tequila flights, innovative cocktails and complimentary taste tests. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of both weeks from 4 pm to 6 pm, Oyamel will host complimentary tastings @ Oyamel’s Butterfly Bar. With drinks must come food, so Oyamel has crafted a special menu of antojitos (*Translation: Mexican food and snacks) in honor of the festival. We look forward to scallop ceviche with tequila (*and ironically, we cannot stand ceviche, but this sounds like it might dispute our theory…) and Fidencio Mezcal.

The Where: Oyamel, 401 7th St., NW, Washington, DC (202) 628-1005
The When: March 1-14, 2010

>>>Bar 7 comes to Mount Vernon Square. The soft opening this weekend will show patrons just how many personalities Bar 7 aims to please. Think of it as a place where you can get a good beer, watch a game on the flat screen and see a live band perform all while licking your fingers from the wings you will consume. A true bar! But with a bit of a twist…there’s a dance floor and a DJ on hand too.

The Where: Bar 7, 1015 ½ Seventh St., NW, Washington, DC 20001 (202) 347-4343
The When: Soft open this weekend, call for more details
