Tonight, at Cashion’s, chef John Manolatos unveils a new weekend tasting menu of his favorite dishes. Price is $85 per person ($105 with wine pairings). Availability is limited. The next day, the Cashion’s crew also celebrates the second anniversary of its sister retail spot, A.M. Wine Shoppe, with tastings and demonstrations throughout the afternoon and early evening.

Also on Saturday, a whole weekend’s worth of culinary education events kicks off at 1789 with chef Anthony Lombardo‘s braising tutorial, followed by a trip across town to Eastern Market and subsequent cooking class with celebrity toque Spike Mendelsohn. On Sunday, meanwhile, Barracks Row is the scene of an entire culinary education crawl.

Sunday is also the start of D.C. Meat Week. Those who don’t schlep out to Rockville’s Urban Bar-B-Q for the kick-off party, featuring happy hour specials and free side dishes, can still look forward to clogging their arteries at the Hill Country buffet on Monday, as well as other events throughout next week.
