Fans of handheld waffles, wrapped up like gyros for eating on the go, have been largely out of luck in recent weeks. That's because the Grids Waffle truck is in the shop.
That won't matter so much this weekend, though, because the waffles are coming indoors.
Friday night kicks off a new weekly pop-up event at Fruit Bat (1236 H St. NE), where local food trucks take over the restaurant's kitchen. Beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Grids will be griddling up its staples, including the "Gridlicious" with bacon and syrup and "I Know What You Grid Last Summer," featuring chocolate chips, strawberries, and whipped cream.
Operator Lu Koa is also unveiling a new concept for the event called the "P-Griddy." It's a cheese pizza waffle with fresh basil. All waffles are $8. The makeshift waffle shop is staying open late both nights. At least until 2 a.m. Maybe even later depending on demand.
Also this weekend: Guests at Graffiato on Saturday afternoon get a free glass of rosé.
And, on Sunday, one of the District's best options for cheap eats will be even cheaper. Toki Underground is celebrating its first anniversary by offering a 30-percent discount on all food items.
Coming up: Taste of the Nation is Monday. Tickets are still available.
