Georgetown Foodie Tour

11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Location: Meet at intersection of 28th St NW and Pennsylvania Ave NW

Cost: $40 (includes four portions and one alcoholic pairing, as well as gratuity)

Join fellow alumni for a walking food tour of Georgetown!

Taste cuisine from various local eateries and burn off calories walking through the Georgetown area. Awarded the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor in 2016, Mangia DC’s Georgetown Food Tour pays tribute to the 1920’s era when the neighborhood was the local food commerce area of the district. A knowledgeable guide with a passion for food will guide us to learn about the history and culture of the Georgetown area while we stop for tastings at eateries large enough for a full meal.

A portion of every ticket will go to So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E) to help feed the less fortunate.

Total length of the tour is over a mile and will take approximately 3 to 3½ hours. Tour will begin promptly at 11:30, but please arrive at 11:00.

Dress code is casual.

Mangia DC is able to provide food substitutions. Please indicate any allergies when you sign up for the event.

Directions:
From Metro's Orange Line, take the Foggy Bottom exit. Head north on 23rd St. NW for 407 ft. At the traffic circle, take the 5th exit onto Pennsylvania Ave NW. Walk for half a mile to a small park across the street from the Four Seasons at the intersection of 28th St NW and Pennsylvania Ave NW.

Refund deadline is June 9, 2017.

Join a Committee

The UD DC Alumni Club is growing and we need your help! For those of you that want to help but don't have a lot of time, we've created two committees: the Social Committee and the University Committee. The Social Committee will help plan and run happy hours, game watches, cultural and similar events. The University Committee will help with our new community service and other UD engagements.

Committees are the easiest way to bring new ideas to the club as our membership is rapidly growing. If you have an interest, please email alumnet@udel.edu.
