If you haven’t had the chance to meander down Barracks Row (aka the Main Street of Capitol Hill), you are missing out on a charming part of this hood which BTW, is accessible via the Metro (in case you’d like to have a few sips here, there, and everywhere). One Sunday, January, 22nd, from 9:30am to 5pm, Hello Cupcake (which is a locally-born and based cupcakery) owner Penny KarasÂ and ten other Barracks Row businesses are welcoming friends and strangers by opening their doors, sharing their recipes and teaching tricks of the trade during the first Barracks Row Culinary Crawl.
All under $20, classes explore a spectrum of expertise including cupcake baking, oyster shucking or cooking a Belgium feast. Co-hosted by Barracks Row Main Street, participating businesses include: Matchbox, Senartâ€™s Oyster and Chop House, Hello Cupcake, Spring Mill Bakery, Chatâ€™s Liquor, Zest Bistro, Lavagna, Hillâ€™s Kitchen, Capitol Hill Tandoor and Belga.Â Several participants chose to donate instructor fees to charities such as Barracks Row Main Street, Oyster Recovery Project and CH Village.
