Tonight, ChurchKey taps the only cask in town of Bell’s coveted Hopslam. Meanwhile, Smith Commons is hosting a whole dinner dedicated to out-of-market beers and unusual pairings: the goat cheese ravioli with raisin puree and pop rocks matched up with Hair of the Dog Brewing Co.’s “Fred” certain sounds interesting. Ditto the braised pork belly with coffee and smoked bacon paired with Alaskan Brewing Co.’s “Smoked Porter.” Also on the agenda: the debut of the new Black & Orange on 14th Street, with its brand-new “Hair of the Dog” burger, as well as the opening of Unum, the new Georgetown restaurant by former Equinox sous chef Phillip Blane. Also, the grand pig-out procession known as D.C. Meat Week converges on Alexandria’s Pork Barrel BBQ.
Coming up: on Wednesday, D.C.’s most talented pastry chefs show off their skills at the annual Sugar & Champagne charity event at the Ronald Reagan Building. And, on Thursday, Church & State debuts its new cocktail list, with each libation created in tribute to one of the biblical seven deadly sins. For our purposes, gluttony seems an apt choice.
