Break Out The Lipitor: It’s D.C. Meat Week!

Institutionally, Y&H has a special connection to D.C. Meat Week. After all, the last guy to occupy this seat, Tim Carman, sort of kick-started the whole thing in this very space back in 2009. All he really proposed was dinner.  "All I did was write a blog item about the non-D.C. event in 2009, mostly to […]

More Delays for Spike Mendelsohn’s We, The Pizza

For the second time now,  the opening of Spike Mendelsohn's We, The Pizza is being pushed to a later date. First, the New York-style pizza joint was supposed to open on Monday, July 12.

You probably figured this one out already. Local Meat Week organizer Mike Bober has decided to call off tomorrow's final gathering at Mr. P's Ribs & Fish in the Safeway parking lot at 514 Rhode Island Ave. NE. "We can either revisit later in the month or — maybe easier — plan to finish on the […]

Local Organizer Has No Beefs With Opening Night of Meat Week

The opening night of Meat Week apparently surpassed the local organizer's expectations, which perhaps wasn't hard, since they hovered somewhere near rock bottom. But 24 people showed up last night at Urban Bar-B-Que, which stayed open late to handle all the carnivores. "I was really impressed at the way Urban Bar-B-Que stepped up to handle […]

Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Appetite: Meat Week Begins Sunday

Our week of rampant carnivorism is almost upon us, and many of you have apparently been bombarding our captain with questions about just what the hell is Meat Week? Or how do you participate? How much does it cost? Do you have to go every night? Does it come with a free prescription of Lipitor? […]

Beware: Meat Week Is Nearly Upon Us!

Meat Week, if I'm truly honest with myself, is not designed for cities like Washington D.C., where barbecue joints have to cater to the many different styles of American smoked meats.

BYT Rounds Up the Best and Worst of 2009

Guess which trend got dissed by local food writers? Yes, it's started already: The lists. The roundups.

BrightestYoungThings gets out of the gate early with its D.C. Foodie Writer 2009 Wrap Up, which includes […]

Food News Roundup: Meat and Cereal Edition

Mmm, dinner is served. News is breaking faster than Y&H can keep up with it, which means that it's time to get all HuffPo and do a little link aggregation. Let's get right to it: WaPo's Tom Sietsema breaks the news about Michael Landrum's latest projects, Ray's the Glass, a Personal Wine Bar with Mark […]
