Please join hosts Kristina Bilonick and Carolina Mayorga tomorrow Thursday 10/23 at EatsPlace at 3607 Georgia Ave NW (1 block south of Petworth Metro) for a fun evening filled with art and libations. Starting at 7 pm, enjoy a silent auction, DC Born & Raised food specials, and a portion of drink sales will go in support of David Do for Ward 1 schools. Come meet your candidate!
Our too smart for humans sales robot finally let us offer happy hour at EatsPlace! DC Born & Raised will also be offering specials on their bar bites menu.

Drinks @EatsPlace will have happy hour weekdays from 5-7pm. $1 off all beer, wine, liquor and cocktails. That means $4 Wild Wolf Pilsner and Blonde Hunny, Evolution Lot 3 IPA, Aleworks Tavern Ale and Chesapeake Pale Ale, as well as our ever popular Champion Missile IPA on tap. Glasses of Sauvignon Blanc and Cotes du Rhone are $6. Mumbai fizzes and bourbon apple ciders for $7.
A buck may not seem like a lot these days unless you look at the overall percentages. Our drinks are well-priced on any given time, so happy hour means 20% – 11% off. But for us it’s less about the psychology about getting a deal and more about hey you just clocked out of your tough job, and you’re in the (neighbor)hood, so why not stop by to see some friendly faces and sip a tasty libation? No matter how you crunch the numbers, drinks go down smoother during happy hour.
Sinovision dropped by to do a video segment on EatsPlace and our chefs in residence, Mason Dixie Biscuit Co and DC Born & Raised.
My rough translation:
“For many cooks, it’s their dream to sell food. But rent is expensive, and complex regulations can be major hurdles. In Washington, a newly opened commercial kitchen may be able to help chefs take the first step to realize their dreams. Its founder is a young Chinese girl.”
Random thoughts: I’m thrilled to be called young?! Doesn’t Mason Dixie Biscuit Co’s food look good on camera? Well, it tastes even better than it looks. The journalist, Karen worked so hard to write, shoot and edit this piece. It was fun to see it unfold before my eyes and share a little bit about EatsPlace and my food story.
If breakfast is kind of somebody, then brunch is definitely kind of somebody and you really need to eat now. That’s why on Monday we’re featuring breakfast and brunch with Mason Dixie Biscuit Company and bloody marys featuring Baba’s Cooking School‘s Lala hot sauce and mimosas. Yay federal holiday! And starting next weekend, DC Born & Raised will be doing weekend brunch big time.
We’re back with updates and more on the blog!
Thanks for all of the support and love! Mason Dixie Biscuit Company is here all morning from 7 am – 1:30 pm, and DC Born and Raised will be here 5-10 pm through the weekend. DCB&R weekend brunch will start next week! We’re starting off the weekend early with Baba’s Bloody Marys, made with my own award winning lala hot sauce. So come and stop by for a visit. There’s plenty of good food and drink.
