Like beer and bourbon, great barbecue takes patience to make and causes one to get sauced while consuming it. Keep your wipes handy with this Groupon.
$35 for VIP Admission to the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival on Friday, June 14 ($65 Value)
At National Harbor in Oxon Hill, VIP guests chow down at several tasting stations, savoring exclusive meaty treats such as gourmet pork and pork-infused dishes from local eateries from 6 to 10 p.m. Pit masters demonstrate their methods and serve pulled pork freshly shaved from whole hogs, a Southern delicacy. A take-home souvenir glass provides a vessel for unlimited sips of the beers and bourbons served at the event's many bars, which have doubled in number since last year to help eliminate lines and to employ twice as many local drying cloths.
Tysons Fall Harvest
It may be the inaugural year of Tysons Fall Harvest, but it already has the docket to rival any well-established fall festival. This family-friendly event will keep kids entertained with plenty of activities, from pony rides and petting zoos to a hay maze and pumpkin carving. Those who need to brush up on their carving skills can sit in on demonstrations from master pumpkin carvers or head to the craft corner to paint or just hug a gourd that escaped.
Even without kids in tow, adults will have plenty to do, including visiting the wine and beer garden for unlimited samples when they purchase a tasting glass, as well as shopping a marketplace with pumpkins and fall decor. They might even consider dropping by Rocknoceros's set at the live-music stage; they might be a kids' band, but their acclaim has landed them gigs at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and the Kennedy Center. A portion of the Harvest's proceeds will benefit the Spirit of Hope Children's Foundation.
