In honor of George Washington’s birthday, participating Alexandria restaurants will create unique, cherry-centric dishes in celebration of one of the most cherished legends surrounding our first president. Each restaurant will develop its own cherry cocktail, appetizer, entrée, and/or dessert, in honor of our distinguished native son, of course! New this year, the competition will extend throughout the month of Februrary, and some dishes will be available to-go. The competing restaurants and their entries will be listed on our website. Patrons can digitally rate their favorite dishes and winners will be announced on our website and Facebook page. For more information, visit WashingtonBirthday.com.
