THE PARTY Foodies and carnival lovers alike gathered at the Dock at Mess Hall for the Sip.Taste.Play! summer party. The beautiful boardwalk was transformed into a carnival party featuring fun games, fresh cocktails, and savory bites!
THE PEOPLE The event was presented by Johanna’s Table, the culinary creation from DC pop-up Chef Johanna Hellrigl in honor of the launch of XII, her new monthly pop up dinner series which will showcase an array of local ingredients complemented by global flavors and spices.
BEST IN SHOW Attendees enjoyed performances from fire eaters, stilt walkers, drag fortune tellers, and of course had the chance to sample a variety of culinary delights from Frosé Sno Cones to oysters and pig roast, as well as delicious cocktails from Cotton & Reed and refreshing craft beers from DC Brau Beer. It made for a magical night!
