Today’s Groupon gets you three hours of unlimited food and drink at Verizon Wireless Best of Washington 2009 Party organized by The Washingtonian for just $50 (normally $95). The party is hosted at the beautiful National Building Museum, (401 F St., NW), on Wednesday, July 15 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Your vice-presidential ticket gets you delicious cuisine from more than 50 of DC’s best restaurants as rated by The Washingtonian. If your belly prefers liquids, guzzle down as many beers, wines, and cocktails from DC’s premier watering holes as you can handle.
In 2008 this event sold out—more than 1,200 guests and celebs packed the NBM to binge like the ancient Greeks. It’s like a singles convention for lonely stomachs looking for true love: you’ll sample all the culinary excellence from DC’s finest restaurants, then end the night in love with a new restaurant. If you’ve got friends and family who have tongues, stomachs, or both, make sure to tip them off on this huge deal fast because there are only 400 tickets available. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from this event go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
