From Harper Macaw, [a new chocolate factory up in NE]:

“we are putting together a very unique event for Valentine’s Day: a first of its kind Made in DC Sips and Bites – Pairing and Tasting. I promise it to be nothing short of outstanding!

We have brought together over 15 local DC makers in a 4 course fixed pairing menu. Local purveyors include Atlas Brew Works, Baku Beverage, Capital Kombucha, Compass Coffee, Dangerously Delicious Pies, DC Brau, Element Shrub, Gordy’s Pickle Jar, Harper Macaw, Leonora Bakery (Northside Social), On Rye, Pie Sisters, True Tonics, Red Apron, Sona Creamery, and wines provided by Schneider’s of Capitol Hill. Decorations will be idealized by Capitol Romance.

We created this event with the intention of doing something outside the box from the traditional Valentines event. Not only will it be something innovative and creative for couples, but it is an event that friends and singles will enjoy just as much.

We will hold the event at 3 different times. Tickets are $100, but for the first 20 of each slot we reserved an Early Bird special of $85.

Friday, February 12th at 7PM
Sunday, February 14th at 3PM
Sunday, February 14th at 7PM

    This looks fun, but I can’t get over the ticket price! It’s not at all clear what you get for $100, but looking at the line-up of companies, it’s certainly not actual full meals (6 of the vendors make beverages of some sort, two make pies, and the rest of either desserts, condiments, or snacks). For $100, I don’t want a “tasting and sip” of anything; I want an actual meal and quality entertainment. If the ticket was in the range of $20 I would go, but the pricetag on this is just insane and basically makes this event inaccessible for most people.

  • “first of its kind”
    I swear I’ve seen dozens of events in DC that are exactly this type of thing.

    “Harper Macaw”? You just know that was spit out of the Hipster Business Name Generator.

      Actually, the name comes from two birds that are native to the region where the cocoa beans are harvested for the chocolate. Neat fact we learned on a tour there.
