Had enough of the PETA people prancing around in lettuce and other skimpy outfits? Get your revenge by attending DC's first-ever Meat Week, starting Sunday, Jan. 31 and ending Feb. 7.

With no rules and just a few traditions, it's a carnivore lover's dream. It's also a nationwide event with a focus on southern-style BBQ. (We feel a Homer Simpson moment coming on...)  

As noted by Northern Virginia Magazine, the DC region can thank Captain Mike Bober of Capital Spice, for putting together this mouthwatering list of venues for the eight-day event:

  • Sunday, Jan 31: Urban BBQ in Rockville, MD
  • Monday, Feb 1: Rocklands Barbeque in Washington, DC
  • Tuesday, Feb 2: Red Hot & Blue in Arlington, VA
  • Wednesday, Feb 3: Pork Barrel BBQ at Mango Mike’s in Alexandria, VA from 5-9 p.m. ($15.95)
  • Thursday, Feb 4: Capital Q in Washington, DC
  • Friday, Feb 5: Branded ’72 in Rockville, MD
  • Saturday, Feb 6: Mr. P’s Ribs and Fish in Washington, DC (514 Rhode Island Ave, NE in the Safeway parking lot) at 3 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb 7: venue of your choice at 6 p.m.

Nothing's mandatory at Meat Week. You can attend one night or all seven. And, with the exception of the Feb. 3 Pork Barrel BBQ Buffet at Mango Mike's -- which is $15.95 per person -- and the Super Bowl Sunday free for all, the gatherings start at 7 p.m. To RSVP for a spot at Mango Mike’s, email capitalspice@gmail.com by Monday evening.

Check out Capital Spice for all the juicy details on the event.
