It’s about time to get your weekend started. And Y&H has just three words for you: U Street Taco.

For the uninitiated, this quintessentially D.C. sloppy drunk food consists of a Ben’s Chili Bowl chili half-smoke wrapped in a jumbo slice. Watch the video below for instructions, then send your best U Street Taco photos from the weekend to

We will select (and run) the best photos on Monday, and the first-place winner will get a pair of tickets to Wednesday’s Best of D.C. Fete, where the city’s best restaurants, breweries, and mixologists will be dishing out food and drinks. (You can also still buy tickets.)

The runner-up will get a City Paper T-shirt. After all, we assume whatever shirt you were wearing during the eating of the U Street Taco will be ruined. Also, a disclaimer: Washington City Paper is absolutely not responsible for what happens after you eat the U Street Taco.

UPDATE: It’s not too late! We will accept photos until Wednesday.
