************************************

Winter Restaurant Week [RW] is back in DC!:
Learn more about DC's Restaurant Week

* Officially runs Jan 13 - 19 [some places like Bibiana will extend the deal beyond these dates]
* 3-course fixed-price dinner special for $35.14 [not including drinks, and our required 30% tax / tip]

So, the minimum cost for the deal (IF YOU CHOOSE BIBIANA's OPTIONAL RW Deal) is $47 [drinks, wine/beer, and any extras items are additional and still factors our 30% tax/tip]

→ By attending this event, each member agrees to this $ minimum. CASH PREFERRED PLEASE!

************************************

Folks often forget that some restaurants extend the actual Restaurant Week period beyond the designated week. Well, why not take advantage one last time but with an option to do a la carte? ;)

We're going back to Bibiana Osteria & Enoteca for really nice, consistent Italian throughout the year.

--> 2013 Top 100 Very Best in the Washingtonian

FOOD: MD-native Chef Nick Stefanelli is serving up quality, regional Italian (and a nice pedigree formerly working at Mio  and four-star but now-closed Fabio Trabbocci's Maestro). You'll find your classics like a Burrata or Polpette (veal and pork meatballs) for starters and a variety of pasta / pizza (hey, it's an Osteria) fish / meat for entrees.  Desserts are quite nice here as well.

Prices of the regular dinner menus can range from $19 (i.e. pastas) - $30 (meat-based) for entrees, so there's pricepoints for everyone.

------

Dinner Details: Bibiana is allowing diners to choose the normal dinner menu OR a slightly adjusted RW menu

• For their extended RW menu will be the same but with a couple of dishes removed. Preview RW Menu (will be updated online by Monday 1/20). $47 minimum RW Deal price applies.

•  Diner can also choose the normal dinner menu (which a dinner can certainly be pricier than the RW deal). A la carte plus our normal required 30% tax/tip.
------

SPACE: Modern somewhat sophisticated. Perfect for all those fancy Hotels within walking distance ;)

==> Tax/Tip combo is our required 30% tax/tip policy ( see the FAQs for more details)
==> Limited to 20 slots


See you there!

************************************

1. Limited to 20 slots.

2. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 3,900+ members and limited seating, we cannot afford no-shows. It's unfair to the other members who would like to attend and also to the organizers who have to explain to the restaurant why the reserved # of guests didn't show (can damage our reputation). No-Show rules apply.

3. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (the Organizer for each event will enable this as needed). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event.

4. Billing (add 30% tax/tip to your bill). Remember, include the required 30% for tip / tax in addition to the food / beverages you order as defined in our FAQs.

5. NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs and our No-Show Policy.

    Such a pleasant way to spend a Friday night. So glad that people were in a sharing mood because a number of dishes were better than mine-- the beef cheeks were especially delish :) Thanks for organizing another great event, Joe!

    Great event! Nice lively group of folks attended tonight, mix of longtimers and 1st-timers. Food and the RW Deal for those that took advantage was pretty well-received (tasty beef cheeks!). Fun night, easy event :)
