The holidays are upon us! We have our first Christmas celebration this Saturday with Tom’s parents and then leave for Oklahoma to celebrate with my family next week. I’m even more behind than usual. If anyone is wondering, I’d like an extra three hours per day for Christmas. Come on, Santa!
Whether you’re on the struggle bus like I am or completely finished with all of your holiday prep and ready to party, this week’s events have you covered.
Kombucha 101 with Craft Kombucha
My favorite tea fermenters over at Craft Kombucha are showing Washingtonians how to brew their own kombucha at home. The class will take place Thursday, December 15th at 6 p.m. Each ticket ($50) includes everything you need to brew your very first batch: a fermentation vessel, SCOBY (the culture used to make kombucha), and starter.
Oklahoma Beer in DC
This is a fun one. I always love it when my home state gets a little love. Prairie Artisan Ales is an awesome craft brewery out of Tulsa that recently started distributing to DC stores. Churchkey has acquired all 33 of their brews and is hosting a Prairie Artisan Ales Extravaganza on Wednesday, December 14th. There’s a little something for every beer lover, from stouts to sours to IPAs. The event starts at 4 p.m. and is free to attend.
Bethesda Bagels Coming to Navy Yard
As a Navy Yard resident, I’m always excited to hear about new restaurants coming to the area. (I’m also getting mighty impatient for some of them to finally start opening, but that’s another story.) The most recent cause for excitement is a new Bethesda Bagels coming to Insignia on M in early 2017. If all goes according to plan, 2017 should be a truly magical time for foodies in Southeast.
My sister-in-law, Melissa, really gets me. She introduced me to these Tipsy Scoop boozy ice cream pints and now I can think of nothing else. Apparently the Dark Chocolate Whiskey and Salted Caramel flavor is out of this world. Which one would you most want to try?
