Taste of Bethesda and Taste of Georgetown vie for visitors


WASHINGTON, D.C. — Locals rang in the fall season with two food festivals held today: the foodie-pleasing Taste of Georgetown and the more entertainment-focused Taste of Bethesda.

The Taste of Georgetown declared offerings of “tastes from more than thirty of the neighborhood’s best restaurants”, and a new offering that allowed guests to enjoy wine and beer as they walked from booth to booth. The event took place on K Street Northwest. As always, the event benefited the Georgetown Ministry Center’s mission to help support the homeless. It took place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.

The Taste of Bethesda had selections from fifty different restaurants, including Georgetown Cupcake, Ruth’s Criss Steakhouse, Tapp’d Bethesda and American Tap Room. They had thirteen musical acts playing five different stages. Taste tickets were sold on-site in bundles of four for $5. The event went from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and was held in Bethesda’s Woodmont triangle.
