What’s Up Columbus Day Weekend in DC Metro

There’s no shortage of delicious ways to spend the upcoming three day weekend. Some of the highlights were spotlighted earlier on the blog. To recap: on Saturday, Taste of Bethesda will fill the Woodmont Triangle with a food and music event - be sure to visit Zagat and Google Offers at Tent F on Norfolk Ave. That same day, Shirlington Village will host a mega beer festival. And, on Monday Night the Capital Food Fight will bring together a host of food celebs and top restaurants for a sold-out event (too bad for you procrastinators).

Looking for more good reasons to eat sausages and drink beer? On Saturday, Virtue Feed and Grain, the Old Town Irish-American pub, will host an Oktoberfest in its Wales Alley with oysters, sausages, sauerkraut, live music, prizes and (of course) beer (11:30 AM-9 PM; 106 South Union St., Alexandria, VA; 571-970-3669). Or head to Reston Town Center for its blockbuster fall festival with more food, wine, beer, live entertainment and a carnival (11 AM-11 PM).

Taste of DC will fill historic Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and the Capitol with restaurants and entertainment Saturday-Monday (noon-7 PM). A beer garden, family zone and chili eating contest are among its highlights. If that sounds too frenetic, mellow out instead at Columbia Heights Day on Saturday. It begins with a yoga workshop, and will have family performances, local artists, food and a beer garden (10 AM-6 PM; Harriet Tubman Elementary field, Kenyon St. NW between 11th and 13th Sts. NW).
