For $9, today's deal gets you one day's admission to the Metropolitan Food, Libations & Luxury Home Show (a $20 value), which takes place at Gaylord National Hotel in National Harbor, Maryland, on Saturday, March 26 and Sunday, March 27 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This year's exhibition boasts culinary creations, international libations, and luxury home and landscape design, all sound tracked by the sweet sounds of live jazz and Latin-inspired beats. Attendees can drink and dine their way through more than 250 exhibits sponsored by the National Home Show Association, discovering inimitable objects and design ideas for the home or cardboard cubicle. Exhibitors range from design firms and kitchen architects to landscapers capable of transforming an overgrown pepperbush into an immaculate full-scale sculpture of John D. Rockefeller for the front yard. Artisan beers and fine wines are available for ingesting, and the liquor-tasting stations provide insight into our liquor legacies. From gourmet pretzels and savory sauces to southern peanuts and flat bread-banana cake, culinary connoisseurs can celebrate complexly satisfying samples, which are also available for purchase.
