The ever-popular Chef Jonathan Bardzik will be at this Saturday’s Farmers Market from 11am to 1pm. Jonathan will be using some of the local produce to make some great dishes for you to try. He will also have recipe cards for you to take home. The market is at 4340 Connecticut Ave. directly in front of the UDC Law school. It is sponsored by UDC CAUSES and Van Ness Main Street.
Business to Business Assistance
Van Ness Main Street has launched a couple of special programs for our businesses. We have contracted with a social media consultant who is meeting with our businesses to help them find ways they can improve their social media presence. And last year, we hired a restaurant consultant to develop an assessment of our restaurants. This year we are bringing him back to create tools and measurements for the restaurants and to create a Van Ness Restaurant Group.
JAZZ@VN Next Thursday
We will host another Jazz@VN on Thursday, July 27 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Laliguras Restaurant located at 4421 Connecticut Ave NW. Music will be provided by Rick Peralta on guitar and Renée Tannenbaum on vocals. Rick and Renee live in Van Ness and have performed throughout the DMV. Come meet your local neighborhood musicians. Laliguras will have food and drink specials.
Brunch in Van Ness
Stop by the Farmers Market and then have brunch at Acacia Bistro. Enjoy several chef-inspired summer dishes and drinks. Or, try Sfoglina for handmade pasta and their yummy ice cream. And if you want a change, check out Laliguras for a Nepalese brunch with their special Momo Dumplings.
