Eat Up: Taste of 8th Is Saturday

The third annual Taste of 8th Street takes over Barracks Row this Saturday, April 30, with 20 restos offering up tastings of their signature dishes from 1 to 4 p.m.

Buy tickets for tastes at participating spots such as Banana Café (pictured), Belga Café, Cava Mezze, DC3 and Matchbox. (You can see the full list here.)

Tickets are $5 for a single tasting, equivalent to a tapas or small-plate portion, or five tickets for $20.

It's all happening along 8th Street S.E., between Pennsylvania Avenue and M Street. Ticket sales benefit Barracks Row Main Street's year-round work to maintain a clean, safe and beautiful community for residents and businesses.

And hey, Foursquare users! If you check into Barracks Row on Foursquare three times before Saturday, April 30, 201, you'll will receive one free ticket.
