Hot Spot: Penn Quarter & 14th Street, Washington, DC
Deets:Leave your wallet at home and dine in 30 top DC restaurants in one night. We shut down some of DC’s best restaurants for you to enjoy the chef’s favorite dishes and drinks. Eat and drink at your starting restaurant and choose your next stop. It’s up to you.
Dine-N-Dash will take place on June 7 from 6-10pm. This year, over 30 restaurants are expected to participate, a huge increase from the six that took part in the event’s first year. Originally located in Penn Quarter, the Charles Schwab-sponsored event is now split evenly between the original neighborhood and the busy 14th Street corridor. Guests select a starting restaurant when they buy a ticket, and from there progress from establishment to establishment at their whim, with each offering a selection of 6-8 dishes and 4-6 drinks. There will be live music at many of the participating restaurants, and a selection of the city’s finest food trucks will ensure that even trips between restaurants will be delicious.
All proceeds benefit World Central Kitchen.
