Wed March 8 at 7:00 PM, Rocklands BBQ
2418 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC, USA (Map & Directions)
Hey strange food lovers of DC! (That's people who love strange foods or strange people who love foods--we don't discriminate.) Rocklands BBQ has confirmed to me via Facebook that their yearly Grills Gone Wild event featuring rare and exotic meats will be March 7-10. Who's up for a Wednesday night picnic?
So Wednesday is supposed to be really nice (60s, sunny) and there's a park right next to the Glover Park location of Rocklands. (Copronymus reminded me that this location has pretty much zero seating.) Let's get weird!

also wtf is DC FOODIES?
idk, a while back I decided it would be fun if MeFites joined up to explore DC's under-the-radar, cheap eats, and rare/unusual food options, and then anotherpanacea came up with a fun acronym name for us. Anyone is welcome to join at any time, no prior experience needed! (yes, that means you can join if you are a small baby and literally have no prior food experience. this has even happened before!)

Dads are also welcome! (But if this ends up just being "capricorn and Copronymus go on a date to eat meat in a park" that's fine too)
