Quite a few upcoming food-related events in the next few days, plus some items of note:
* 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.
* 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
* 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.
(One would think Subway Café and the Big Stick will arrive at 20 M before Dec. 31, but we shall see....)
