Dishcrawl Makes Arlington Debut in March
Group invites foodies to inaugural event in Shirlington Village.
Hey, foodies: Dishcrawl is coming to Shirlington Village.
Billed by organizers as "like a pub-crawl — for the gastronome," the Cupertino, Calif.-based startup is bringing its restaurant-hopping experience to Arlington in March.
Slainte in Shirlington, as it is called, starts at 7 p.m. March 12, just a few days before St. Patrick's Day. Reservations are $45 per person.
The idea is to take food lovers to four distinct restaurants in one night so they can meet, mingle and sample a variety of local specialities.
"Dishcrawl provides a unique opportunity to try signature dishes and to meet chefs and owners of local restaurants," Arlington Dishcrawl Ambassador Ti Leverett said in a statement. "Although we are located right next to the Washington, D.C., culinary scene, Arlington has its own great variety of restaurants. Dishcrawl is a way to bring people together to experience what we have to offer."
Organizers are keeping the names of the four restaurants secret. Ticket-holders will be notified of the first location two days before the event.
