barbequeFeatured 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).

    Barbecue bacchanalia? More like barbecue bypass surgery. As a dietitian, I’m urging the women of Washington to raise awareness about the No. 1 killer of women—heart disease—by avoiding Meat Week.

    February is American Heart Month, a month to spread the word that heart disease kills one in every four women. Eating red meat increases the risk of dying prematurely from heart disease, according to a recent study from the Harvard School of Public Health, and when those meats are processed—pastrami, bacon, hot dogs, sausage—the risk nearly doubles.

    Ladies, let’s skip the “High on the Hog Eating Challenge,” this week and say no to red meat year-round. Fight heart disease with a healthful diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains.
