2nd (Mid) at Tingey, Looking West (see more)

Quite a few upcoming food-related events in the next few days, plus some items of note:
* TRUCKERBOO: As mentioned elsewhere, Friday brings the Halloween-themed version of Truckeroo, the last food truck shindig of 2014, starting at 11 am.
* WILLIE'S HAPPY HOUR AND "GRAND OPENING" - Willie's Brew & Que at 3rd and Tingey has now launched Happy Hour, weekdays from 4 to 6 pm, with $5 drafts, wine, rail drinks, and vodka or gin gimlets. And Saturday night is said to be its official "grand opening," though there's no recent mention of it on Willie's Facebook page, Twitter feed, or web site. (There will be quite the show outside that night, though.)
Speaking of libations, Willie's "smoked ice" got a rave review from the Post's Going Out Guide.
* BLUEJACKET TURNS 1: The actual anniversary was on Oct. 29, but on Sunday, Nov. 2, Bluejacket Brewery and its Arsenal restaurant will be celebrating out on the patio at 4th and Tingey streets SE from 1 to 5 pm. The wood-fired grill will be operational, with "pig-chetta on the rotisserie plus other bites," and the brewing team is going to break into the vault of barrel-aged brews. And EaterDC has some stats from Year One, starting with 2,396 barrels produced, and 15,715 soft pretzels baked.
Also, with the arrival of baseball's off-season comes the return of Saturday tours at the brewery.
* UNLEASHED OPENS: Hey, pet food is food too, for some critters! Don't forget that Unleashed by Petco officially opens in the Boilemaker Shops on Tingey St. SE on Monday, Nov. 3.
* TEETER'S GRAND OPENING: As momentous as any food event in the neighborhood's recent history is the pending arrival of Harris Teeter at 4th and M SE, in the Twelve12 building. The signage has been announcing the official opening on Wednesday, Nov. 5, but on Nov. 4 at 5:30 pm there will be a ceremonial ribbon cutting, followed by a "Taste of Teeter" sampling event, running until 8 pm. (Because no one in Washington DC will have anything going on the evening of Election Night!) The 50,000-square-foot store will be open seven days a week from 6 am to midnight.
* OSTERIA MORINI TURNS 1: Bluejacket isn't the only one celebrating a first birthday, for on Wednesday, Nov. 5, Chef Michael White will be in the house as Osteria Morini marks its own anniversary with a special five-course menu for $85 per person ($125 with wine pairings). Reservations are available between 5:30 and 9 pm--RSVP via e-mail.
* JUBILEE WINTER HOURS: Not that ice cream isn't wonderful any time of year, but I'm sure we can all respect a switch to shorter hours at Ice Cream Jubilee until the weather warms again. It will still be open from noon to 9 pm every day.
And before long it'll be time to start breathlessly awaiting the 2015 arrivals of the Navy Yard Oyster Company, Scarlet Oak, and Bonchon.
(One would think Subway Café and the Big Stick will arrive at 20 M before Dec. 31, but we shall see....)

Well, I tried Willie's...for $10, I got a diced chicken sandwich about the size of my fist, a tiny plastic container of cole slaw, a cup for iced tea, and a bag of "housemade" chips. Tasty, but pricey for the paltry portion size. $11 with a buck in the tip jar when I ordered. I walked away hungry. Kinda sad.

That being said, the house was nearly full. So, I guess it doesn't matter to them what I think, for now, anyway.

JD, any word on when 100 Montaditos will open?

As for Willie's, I'm excited that it's finally open. I went on opening day and generally enjoyed it. I didn't balk too much at the prices, but I was a little disappointed in the pulled pork. I am used to western NC barbecue, and while the style was pretty similar, it was minced too finely and far too dry. I'll try again in case they are still ironing out the kinks.


JD says: (10/31/14 2:10 PM)
"Late November" now the latest on 100 Montaditos. (Forgot to include them in my little section at the end of this post.)

I thought that the pulled pork at Willie's when I went (opening night) was a lot like Famous Dave's, which can either be a bug or a feature, depending on your POV. I actually like Famous Dave's, so for me it was a good thing.

King Ribs was absolutely the best barbecue in the area but, unfortunately, it was closed for most of the summer. I hope Bufus is okay.

I don't think it's reasonable to expect something the caliber of a place like 12 Bones ( link in western North Carolina, but I am indeed pretty excited that Willie's is finally up and running. And even if they don't up their game a little bit, the food is bound to taste great if you eat it with enough bourbons with that smoked ice!


conngs0 says: (10/31/14 3:33 PM)
For what it's worth, DCity Smokehouse is the best bbq I've had in the city. link If Willie's can get to and maintain this level, that'd be fine by me!


JES says: (11/1/14 12:20 PM)
I thought the ribs and the mac and cheese at willies were both really solid. The half rack is a legit half rack, so it ain't tiny like the sandwich portions
