How to Taste Dishes From 22 Shaw Restaurants Tomorrow
Locals will be able to sample dishes from 22 Shaw eateries and bars tomorrow night.
Shaw Main Streets — which recently snagged a “Great American Main Street” award — will host a “Taste of Shaw” during its Shaw Main Streets Gala at the Howard Theatre (620 T St. NW) tomorrow night.
The event will include samples of signature food and drinks from restaurants and bars including the Columbia Room and the Passenger, Convivial, Espita Mezcaleria and Right Proper Brewing Company, among others.
Mayor Muriel Bowser and D.C. Councilmembers Charles Allen, Jack Evans, Brianne Nadeau and Vincent Orange will attend the event and help unveil a bronze plaque “that proclaims that Shaw is among the best Main Streets in the nation,” according to a press release.
Additionally, event organizers will present a “Shaw Champion Award” to Derek Brown, who owns the Columbia Room, Eat the Rich, Mockingbird Hill and Southern Efficiency.
Proceeds from the event will help support the “economic revitalization and historic preservation activities in central Shaw.”
Tickets are $80 in advance and $100 on the day of the event.
