Zaytinya: Stomp the grapes

Zaytinya.jpgAs the government shutdown has stress levels skyrocketing across the Washington metro area, chef José Andrés is offering a unique opportunity to blow off some steam.

This Saturday, Oct. 5, from noon to 4 p.m., Andres’s Mediterranean restaurant, Zaytinya, will host a “Greek Harvest Patio Party.” For $10, attendees will be able to stomp on grapes, kick up their heels and dance to live music, enjoy a glass of wine or grape juice, and snack on some delectable eats.

Spanish-born Andrés, who is in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen, also announced yesterday that any furloughed federal employee is eligible for a free sandwich at Zaytinya as well as at his Jaleo and Oyamel restaurants. From Twitter:

Zaytinya is located at 701 9th St. NW. Call 202-638-0800.
