Holding large events is a task that isn't for the faint of heart -- especially when you rely on a really small team. But after the success of our Drinks Invitational last year at the Long View Gallery in Shaw, we couldn't resist doing it again. Team EdibleDC seems to have a knack for picking dates that fall on weather events. Last year's Drinks Invitational was held on the coldest day of the year in 2015, and for this year on Monday, May 2, we had rain, thunder and hail released from the sky.
That didn't stop five hundred people from turning out for EdibleDC Eat/Drink Local on May 2, where we celebrated all things local from spirits, shrubs, rooftop gardens, to goat tacos. It was a smash hit, and many thanks to our sponsors, our vendors and to The Columbia Room and La Colombe for helping host the VIPs. Here's a quick recap of the event:
