    In my humble opinion, Bookalokal is the coolest food enterprise to ever come to DC. If you are a foodie in the city, or a tourist visiting the Capitol, you have to book an experience!

    I've tried several Bookalokal meals in DC but my favorite by far was the Thunder Beast Root Beer party hosted by Stephen in Bloomingdale. Guests gathered in his co-op house for a night filled with great conversation, endless cocktails and awesome BBQ. Stephen was a gracious host and his pulled pork (marinated in root beer!) was some of the best I've ever had. There were about 15 guests total and everyone got along great - I met so many people with fascinating jobs and diverse backgrounds. All in all, it was a lovely night (and at $15 a seat, it was a crazy bargain!). Definitely Book a Lokal the next time you pass through DC.

Description

Simply put, Bookalokal is "the Air bnb for dinner parties," serving up authentic, local gatherings in people's homes around the world. Born in Brussels in 2012, Bookalokal recently settled in Washington, DC and they've been offering a wide array of delicious dinners, brunches, cooking classes and food tours. If you're traveling to DC for the first time, Bookalokal is an invaluable way to get a taste for the local flavor and meet someone who knows the city inside and out and can offer you some great insider tips. Bookalokal offers both public events and private events - you can browse the site for the current meals on the schedule in DC and book one OR you can find a meal with a local that looks interesting and request a date for a private event with your friends or family. If you're a DC transplant, Bookalokal events are the perfect way to meet other food lovers from all walks of life living in the city. If you're tired of going to same couple of restaurants every weekend, give Bookalokal a try!
