Remix Your Weekend: D.C. Meat week, events, and concert listings
Vox presents the revamped Remix Your Weekend, an end-of-week events listing for Georgetown and the greater District. See full listings after the jump. This week, Vox‘s featured event is D.C Meat Week. Going forward, sporting events will also be listed.
Featured Event: D.C. Meat Week 2013
“Eat Meat. Repeat” is the slogan of this week-long nationwide event that features seven different barbecue restaurants in eight nights, from Jan. 27 through Feb. 3.
This weekend’s events include BBQ Food Truck Face-Off, a new addition to D.C. Meat Week, in which four trucks cook two meats and two sides that vary from truck to truck. For $49, attendees will receive a “passport” that allows them to try all the dishes in addition to three PBRs.
While Saturday night’s event at Kangaroo Boxing Club is sold out, meat-lovers can still get some BBQ at Mr. P’s Ribs and Fish on the last day of the event. Fate Pittman (Mr. P) has owned the food truck since 1972 and enjoys the extra customers Meat Week brings.
“I just bought a little bit of extra meat,” he told the Vox in an interview. “I think it’s nice … My business is a lot better.”
For any newcomers planning to venture out to any of these events, the coordinators even created a Guide to Meat Week traditions.
Vegetarians and vegans don’t have to miss out on the fun. The Meat Week webpage says some sides are vegetarian. You veggie lovers can also look forward to Veg Week (Apr. 22 – 28).
