    So hungry....

    Every food aficionado will be in pseudo-heaven Saturday at the 20th Annual Taste of Bethesda. The fest features fare from more than 50 restaurants in the Maryland area; expect everything from Indian and Thai to Italian and Spanish. Tickets are sold on-site in bundles of four for $5; each serving of food will "cost" anywhere from one to four tickets. Luckily, this event has ample free parking so it’s OK to bring the car.

    The Taste of Bethesda takes place in the Woodmont Triangle area. There will be stages set up along every street, showcasing swing and Motown at the Fairmont stage; funk, jump and blues at the St. Elmo stage;  Latin and Afro-funk at the Cordell stage, and jazz and alternative in Veterans Park.

    The Taste of Bethesda is held in conjunction with the Best of Bethesda Day, which benefits the Children’s Inn at The National Institute of Health.
