Things to Do: Safeway BBQ Battle on the Mall

If it has to do with food, I'm all about it.  Fortunately, I've been blessed to be fairly petite in stature so I'm able to eat practically anything I want and often times I do.  So when I received an email about this week reminding me about Safeway's National Capital Barbecue Battle, my mouth instantly started to water.  Oh how I love BBQ, let me count the ways...

Sorry, I had a moment but I'm back.  The BBQ Battle will be held on Saturday, June 26 (11A-9PM) and Sunday, June 27 (11A-7:30P) on Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 9th & 14th Streets.  This year marks the 18th year the BBQ Battle has been in existence. Every year more and more chefs, locally and from across the country, participate in this cook-off.  In addition to eating there will be tons of vendors and live musical performances, click here for the detailed line-up.  Of course, it wouldn't be a DC event without the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown.  He'll be making an appearance on Saturday from 7:30-9:00PM.

Being that I love to support as many charitable organizations as I possibly can, it makes me feel even better that part of the proceeds from the Battle will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.  The costs are listed below.
$10 Adults
$5 Kids (6-12)

Free Kids 5 and under
