#GivingTuesday

Today is #GivingTuesday. If you donate today, give back to your local community by giving to Barracks Row Main Street. Donate now!

We need your help this #GivingTuesday.  Our goal is to raise $2500. We have three levels of donations:

Bronze ($25) – This is enough to provide 15 packs of flowers for our street planters and light pole baskets.

Silver ($50) – A contribution of $50 is enough to buy one new light pole banner for Barracks Row.

Gold ($100) – A $100 gift will provide all of the plants for one of our street planters for the spring season, or will cover the costs of changing out the light pole banners on one light pole for the entire year!

As always, we are happy to accept any donation higher than a gold level as well! Make sure to join us on this #GivingTuesday by donating here!

Our annual weekend of cooking classes is back: Barracks Row Culinary Education Crawl 2015 - November 14, 15 and 16

Sign up for classes here.

Who: Chefs and restaurant owners on Capitol Hill

What: 2015 Culinary Education Crawl on Capitol Hill; twenty five cooking classes will take place at Capitol Hill restaurants!

When: For three days, November 14, 15 and 16 the neighborhood becomes a cooking school campus. Build a schedule just like you did in college and sign up for classes here.

Where: The central campus is on Barracks Row. This year there is also a North Campus near Eastern Market and a South Campus at the Capitol Riverfront.  Classes are easy to get to by foot, bike, Metro (Eastern Market or Navy Yard Metro) or car. If you drive, use Lot L for Capitol Riverfront restaurants. On Barracks Row there is a metered DC parking lot under Interstate 695 at 8th Street. If you are headed to Eastern Market area classes, Colonial Parking is at 600 Pennsylvania Ave, SE.

Why: With the holidays ahead there will be sit down dinners, pot-luck socials and snacks in front of the TV during ballgames. Learn new, chef-taught recipes – whether you are staying in town as host or traveling back home as a guest. You’ll also discover the backstory behind the restaurants of Capital Hill. With chefs and cuisines from all over the world, holiday visitors will be fascinated with an area restaurant tour!
