Photo Recap: 20th Annual Taste of Georgetown

You couldn't dream up a better day to throw the Taste of Georgetown, benefiting Georgetown Ministry Center's homeless assistance programs. Presented by the Georgetown Business Improvement District, the 20th annual food festival hosted thousands of hungry Washingtonians for a day of food, fun & entertainment.

Last year's ToG raised more than $25,000 for the Georgetown Ministry Center. Judging by the size of today's crowd, I'm betting that total is going to increase substantially this year. Over 25 of Georgetown's favorite eateries were on hand with tempting samples (single tastes $5, five-ticket tasting samplers $20) for sale. Bandolero, Clyde's, Old Glory, Thunder Burger (home to DC Outlook's top burger) were here, as were sweet delights from Baked & Wired, Georgetown Cupcake and Sprinkles... all in one place (less walking, more eating.)

Thirsty? Fear not, as there was plenty of liquid libation to be had, courtesy of the Craft Beer & Wine Tasting Pavilion (one taste $4, 3 for $10.) Don't ask me how, but I managed to limit myself to just one incredible barbecue slider (see below) from Old Glory. De-licious! I can hardly wait for next year.

Open for business!

Now that's a pot of paella!
