August 2, 2017

Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) is pleased to announce the restaurants participating in Summer Restaurant Week from Monday, August 14 to Sunday, August 20, easily searchable here.

Restaurants in DC, Maryland, and Virginia will serve up multi-course meals, with dinner menus available for $35, lunch menus for $22, and returning this Summer Restaurant Week, brunch for $22.


Over Summer Restaurant Week, RAMW also launches a new initiative designed to raise awareness about hunger and food accessibility in the capital region. Throughout Summer Restaurant Week, participating locations will team up with the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) to raise funds for the food bank’s nearly 500 food assistance partner agencies. Many restaurants have opted to donate a portion of proceeds earned during Restaurant Week to CAFB. Each dollar donated will provide more than two full meals for someone in need in the region.

Jean Carne Live at Blues Alley July 6-9

June 13, 2017

Soul legend Jean Carne will be performing live at Blues Alley July 6 through 9, 2017.


Her recording career began in 1969 with her husband Doug. Her musical skills became apparent as a teenager on a morning radio talk show, 'Today In Georgia', when she sang 'Misty' to the accompaniment of Errol Garner's piano. Together they made three albums for Ovation Records that saw a building success, via touring engagements across the U.S.A. Jean was often praised for being one of the first Afro-American women to control her musical stylings and not be controlled by the industry moguls.


Jean performed with Duke Ellington, the last vocalist to do so before his death. She then teamed up with Norman Connors for four highly regarded sets, contributed 'Reach For it' to George Duke's Gold album and sang lead vocals on the first two albums by Earth, Wind And Fire. The four albums she recorded for Philadelphia International are considered her finest and introduced Jean to pop and R & B audiences for the first time.
