In fact I was quite fortunate to be invited to the opening night of Uncurbed DC. We were early to arrive, and sadly early to leave with a long drive ahead of us, but I was so pleased to have participated at all. Tadd & Che transformed an upstairs apartment in Georgetown into their own mini-restaurant with personal touches, including a fully decorated Christmas tree next to a fireplace.
Small tables in a number of rooms were covered with paper and stocked with #3, #5, and #24 sauces along with plastic-ware and napkins. In addition, over the last few days they were able to get permission to serve alcohol, so several beer & wine selections were available to wash down the mouthwatering Q. While Tadd worked the truck and general goings-on outside, Che played the very gracious host inside. (Although I can't say which locale was warmer because inside the house was pretty freakin' chilly, despite a couple of small space heaters -- it is an old, vacant townhouse in Georgetown, afterall. Insulation and caulk easily were more of an afterthought, back in the day...)
I suspect most of the festivities (or enjoyable havoc?) caused by the invitee-only guest list might have occurred after our departure as I saw a number of posts from other truckers come in throughout the evening, particularly if DCSlices was tending bar. Here. Here. Here. And here. Plus I know others were there quietly showing some support as well:
I can't say how excited I am for BBQ Bus to be blazing the way for the next gen of pop-up dining experiences. Even according to the invite, as far as anyone knows, this was the first such event in the country. Who says DC doesn't have a serious food scene? Bleh!
