A Royal Watch Party in Kensington

December 3, 2017

A Royal Wedding in Kensington? While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be living in Kensington, they won’t be tying the knot in that city in Maryland. But in homage to Kensingtonians in the UK and Maryland, The Dish & Dram will celebrate the revolutionary union of the British and Americans with a watch party and other celebrations.


During the month of December, The Dish & Dram will pair a bottle of British Bubbly Fit for a Duchess, Court Garden Sparkling Rose, with two all American hot dogs topped with champagne mustard and crispy onions ($85).


They will continue the celebrations with Bangers & Mash at their new Sunday Brunch. This traditional British breakfast unites sausages and mashed potatoes ($18) for a hearty dish that’s a classic on tables throughout the UK. Cheer to brunch and the happy couple with a pint of Lowest Lord ESB. The Dish & Dram is the only restaurant in Maryland outside of Denizens Brewing Co tap room to carry this beer. 


The Dish & Dram wedding party details will be announced as soon as the nuptial date is cast in stone. 

The Dish & Dram is located at 10301 Kensington Parkway, Kensington, MD. Open Tues - Sat: 11:30am - 5:30pm lunch, 5:30pm - 9:30ish-pm for dinner; Sun: 10am - 3pm for brunch. Happy Hour: 3:30pm - 6:30pm Monday to Friday and 12pm to 6:30pm Saturday at the Cocktail Bar. Twitter: @TheDishandDram

Arturo Sandoval Live at Blues Alley

November 15, 2017

Enjoy an evening with 10X Grammy Winning legend of Latin Jazz Arturo Sandoval at Blues Alley November 30 through December 3, 2017.


Granted political asylum in July 1990 and US citizenship in 1999, Sandoval and his family now call Miami, Florida home. A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American Jazz. Sandoval began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but it didn’t take him long to catch the excitement of the jazz world. He has since evolved into one of the World’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugel horn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer.


Arturo Sandoval is fluent in at least four musical languages. He can burn through an Afro-Cuban groove, tear up a bebop tune, soar over a Mozart concerto and sooth you with a luscious ballad; with equal power and grace.
