Living the Sweetlife?

This Saturday I took a journey up north to Columbia, MD. My purpose was attending the second annual Sweetlife festival, a day of music and this year, of food. A big focus of this year’s festival was an increased emphasis on good food. The day was supposed to feature food from: Sweetgreen, Serious Eat, Jose Andres Pepe Truck, Fruck Farm, Taim, Bev Eggleston, Smucker Farms, Keany Produce, Momofoku Milk Bar, Pleasant Pops, The Big Cheese, Sweetflow Mobile, Roberta’s Pizza, Luke’s Lobster, Shake Shack, DC Central Kitchen, Toki Underground, Bake + Wired, Honest Tea, Applegate, Stonyfield, Kind Snacks, Bakery de France, Grody’s Pick Jar, Snikiddy Snacks, Sir Kensington Ketchup, Tadah!

The Morning Roundup 04/07/2012

Happy Saturday everyone. What you thought we wouldn’t hit you with the roundup on the weekend? Well here we are and we got deals for you. The weekend morning roundups may skew toward early afternoon roundups, but we’ll be bringing the freshest deals your way every weekend morning.

Must Buy/Fifty-Fifty: Groupon’s offering a $49 meal for two to The Wild Orchid Cafe. Four courses for $49. Now why isn’t this solely a must buy? The only reason is because it’s not the district (which is the point of this blog).

In Praise Of

Grilling The Turkey

Welcome to the first installment of “In Praise Of.” Here I will discuss some of my odder food fascinations/obsessions. Today I will tell you all about my love of grilled turkey.

One of the things I most looked forward to upon my arrival in the cityburbs was buying a proper charcoal grill. I will assert this as fact and not opinion: meats, fish, vegetables all taste better when cooked over a charcoal fire. I’ve had steaks on a gas grill and steaks on a charcoal grill, and I can tell you that there is no comparison.

The Morning Roundup 04/05/2012

Good morning!  Here’s today’s Morning Roundup:

 

Must Buy: This deal actually went live yesterday afternoon (and we tweeted it over at @eatthedistrict), but Google Offers’ $5 for $10 at Starbucks deal is too much of a no-brainer not to include. Plus, for every deal purchased Starbucks donates $3 to the Create Jobs for USA fund, so you can pretend you’re buying this for charity and not just because you’re mildly addicted to their grande nonfat double shot caramel macchiato.

The Morning Roundup

Welcome to The Morning Roundup

Good morning readers. Welcome to our first ever morning roundup. Evan explained it to you yesterday in his introductory post, but I’ll repeat for those of you that didn’t read it (shame on you!) or need a refresher. Every morning we’re going to attempt to make sense of the all the daily deals that flood your inbox. The notable deals (we won’t flood you with every single food deal on offer) will be labelled with Must-Buy, Fifty-Fifty, and Avoid. The sites we’ll focus on (because we have to draw the line somewhere) are: LivingSocial, Groupon, Scoutmob, Google Offers, and The Capitol Deal.

And We’re Back (Sort Of)!

Welcome to the newly redesigned Eat the District…..

Pause for effect.

And that’s it. That’s what you get. Over two months of planning and thought and countless drafts and this is the best I could come up (this current iteration came to me while sleepwalking through a game of squash with Evan). No witty opener, no food pun, just welcome. This is going to be rough, but I promise we’ll get somewhere. Someday.

Many of you aren’t familiar with Eat the District so the impact of this redesign and relaunch is lost on you.
