The Week In Food

DC, do you want the good news or the bad news first? It’s Friday, so I’ll give you the good news first.

  • Three of our very own local breweries earned a spot to compete at the annual craft beer and food festival, SAVOR. We can officially feel bad ass when we’re drinking DC Brau.
  • Now for the bad. Gina Chersevani of cocktail/mixtress fame can no longer be found behind the bar at PS 7′s. Citing a difference in priorities, Gina and Chef Peter Smith have parted ways, leaving the rest of us a little twitchy about where and when we’ll get our next Gina drink.
  • My mother always told me the best way to catch people off guard during a potential conflict was to kill ‘em with kindess. Maybe the DC Food Truck Association has been talking to my mom? This week they publicly endorsed the DCRA proposed rules for mobile and sidewalk vendors. From the news release:

“Overall, the proposed regulations are a significant improvement to the current rules,” said Che Ruddell-Tabisola, Executive Director of the Washington, DC Food Trucks Association. “We are asking our followers and fans to express their support for the proposed rules to the District before February 18, when the public comment period concludes.”
