Foodie To-Do List: Urbana's Birthday Party, Crepe-Making for Kids, and a Labor Day Chance to Dine Out on the Farm

TodoAs part of an ongoing effort to alert you, the readers of DC Foodies, to all of the really cool food-related events, classes and opportunities throughout the Washington Metropolitan area, we give you this week's edition of the Foodie To-Do List.

Each Wednesday, we give you a heads-up on a few of the upcoming events that we think look particularly interesting.  This week, we've got:

Celebrate Urbana's Third Birthday with a $3 Happy Hour and Birthday Cupcakes:

What:
It's hard to believe that Urbana has only been on the DC scene for three years, but next Monday is their official birthday.  Join them to celebrate all week with $3 appetizers, half-pizzas and beverage specials in the lounge and at the bar.  They'll also be offering a special $30 three-course menu that ends with a complimentary glass of Prosecco or a birthday cupcake complete with candle.

When:
The week of Monday, July 20th
Happy Hour from 4 to 7 PM daily and from 10 PM to 11 PM Monday through Thursday
3 course dinner special from 5 PM to 7 PM daily

Where:
Urbana
2121 P Street, NW
Washington, DC

Why:
A lot has changed on the DC dining scene since Urbana opened three years ago.  Help them celebrate their longevity with cupcakes, prosecco and $3 pizzas next time you're in Dupont Circle!

Cost: 
Happy Hour specials are $3.  The $30 three-course menu is $30 (appropriately enough) plus tax and tip.


Crepe-Making for Kids at Fontaine Caffe in Old Town
:

What: 
Three hour-long classes will teach kids between 6 and 10 the fine art of making French crepes in a friendly, hands-on environment.  Held on Tuesdays from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM, they're a fun way to introduce children to a tasty treat.

When: 
Tuesdays - July 28th, August 4th, August 11th - from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Where: 
Fontaine Caffe & Creperie
119 S. Royal Street
Alexandria, VA

Why: 
School is still a few precious weeks away.  Indulge your child's inner chef with these three classes that will help them learn the fundamentals of this basic French favorite.  They'll even get their own aprons and chefs' hats as souvenirs of the experience.

Cost:
$129 per child for the full three-week course.  Call (703) 535-8151 for more information and to make your reservation.

Labor Day at Ayrshire Farm with Chef Bryan Moscatello for Outstanding in the Field:

What:
Outstanding in the Field is a nationally-organized effort to get diners back to the farm...literally.  They host dinners prepared by prominent local chefs at long communal tables at farms across the country.  This year, they've got three dates scheduled at Ayrshire Farm in Upperville, VA.  The first two have sold out already, but you can still join Chef Bryan Moscatello of Zola and Potenza for an early dinner on Labor Day.

When:
Monday, September 7th, 3 PM

Where:
Ayrshire Farm
Upperville, VA

Why: 
"Outstanding in the Field events feature a leisurely tour of the hosting farm followed by a five course, farm-style dinner at our long table set in a scenic spot. Dinner is accompanied by a wine paired with each course. Diners are joined at the table by the farmer, food producers, a winemaker and other local artisans associated with the meal."  What better way to celebrate the unofficial end of summer with a splurge?  If you're still kicking yourself for missing the various Solstice dinners, this is your chance to make up for it.

Cost:
$189 per person inclusive of wine, tax and gratuity.  Tickets are almost sold out, so visit the website soon to make your reservations and pay online.
