To Do: Taste of Georgetown

This Saturday's 13th annual Taste of Georgetown will bring together more than 25 of the neighborhood's restaurants, along with wine tasting, children’s activities and three jazz and blues bands provided by Blues Alley.

Though last year's event took place during the monsoon of October '05, the participating chefs showcased a fantastic array of dishes. Tomorrow's weather, however, calls for sunny skies.

The food festival will run from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Each dish costs $5 (or buy five tickets for $20). It's worth noting that this is probably the only time of year when you can taste a dish from Citronelle for $5.

A panel of judges (disclosure: including yours truly) will award prizes for the best appetizer, entree, dessert and display. Former 1789 chef Ris Lacoste will serve as MC for the event and will announce the winners at 2:15.

Look for the party on Wisconsin Avenue, between M Street and South Street, and on the lawn of the Grace Episcopal Church at 1041 Wisconsin Ave. NW.
