Reaching toward a country star is a popular way to let them know that, unlike most fans, you appreciate both their musical work and their supple hand skin. Raise the roof with today's Groupon: for $16, you get one ticket to see Big & Rich on Saturday, October 8, at Taste of DC (a $32 value).
Country duo Big & Rich meld traditional country roots with eclectic influences from rock, hip-hop, soul, and reggae, blazing a musical trail gilded with nominations and awards since 2004. Known best for the Billboard-scaling single "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)", the Stetson- and top-hat-sporting pair croon irreverent lyrics and embed social messages entreating audiences to love one another, bringing a blend of benevolence and humor to country music unseen since Willie Nelson stopped doing stand-up comedy at a kitten shelter. The band's brand-new album features soulful infusions of the sounds of John Legend and Wyclef Jean, and their performance at the bustling Taste of DC will be accompanied by a range of complementary country artists including Marybeth Johnson, singer-songwriter Justin Trawick, Georgia natives Connor Christian & Southern Gothic, and solo artist Chuck Wicks.
The Taste of DC once again sets Pennsylvania Avenue abuzz with the festive hubbub of more than 60 local restaurants and vendors offering tastes of signature dishes, including Ping Pong Dim Sum, Medium Rare, BGR, Sushi Rock, Lincoln, Cafe Bonaparte, Luke's Lobster, and Amsterdam Falafelshop. Attendees can purchases booklets of tickets ($15 for 10 tickets, not included in this Groupon) to sample Co. Co. Sala's four-cheese bacon mac 'n' cheese, striped with chocolate-covered bacon (two tickets), or the chocolate-onyx parfait's stratified layers of dark-chocolate mousse, vanilla crème brûlée, salted caramel, and crumbly dark-chocolate brownies (two tickets). Sips from more than 60 wineries and craft breweries pour the perfect complement to every entree, dessert, and attempt to joust an equestrian statue.
