I love my friends. They come up with the craziest ideas and this one is crazy and sounds like a lot of fun. Here is the email I got from my friend Ragini:
Start the weekend off right with an epic hummus showdown at Bravo Bravo (on Connecticut between K and L) tomorrow at 6:30 pm. Steve recently challenged Bob (the best bartender at Bravo! Bravo!, who also happens to make delicious hummus) to a hummus challenge. Upon hearing of the challenge I had to immediately join. Additional entries are welcome, but beware the stiff competition. Come join us as we decide who's hummus is truly the best! If you're not into the whole hummus showdown thing, come any way for some cheap drinks, fun company, and probably free peanuts.
PS: Let us know if you're interested in being an official judge!
PPS: If you need some inspiration for your hummus making or tasting check out this hilarious video:
Please note that this is an informal showdown so there isn't going to be someone with a microphone or anything making announcements. But if you are into cooking and you think you make a pretty mean hummus, it might be fun to stop by and see if your hummus stands up to the rest of the contestants. If you plan to participate in the hummus contest, please bring some pita bread with you for the judges (and others who will be doing some taste testing.) No prizes have been announced at this time but wouldn't the real prize be the glory of winning?
Here is the address:
1001 Connecticut Ave. NW
Unfortunately, I already have some plans so I won't be able to make it but I can't wait to hear about it!
