Takeout Baos at Toki; Rustico Hosts An Oktobeerfest

ATLAS DISTRICT—Here's a friendly reminder that Toki Underground is hosting New York's incomparable Eddie Huang on Friday and Saturday evenings for a series of pop-up dinners featuring Toki's ramen and Huang's baos from Baohaus. It has been predetermined to be a shitshow so if you'd rather skip the line, Toki has announced via Twitter that the baos are going to be available for carryout, too. [Twitter]

ALEXANDRIA—Also on Saturday, Rustico hosts an Oktobeerfest featuring 50 craft beers on draft, as selected by beer maestro Greg Engert. Admission to the block party is free, and tickets for food and drinks will be available at the entrance. Check out this handy map to find the beer and food tents you find most appealing, such as the tent serving brat dogs with bacon-braised sauerkraut. Of course, Buzz Bakery goods will be there, too. It all starts at noon and ends at 5 p.m. [EaterWire]

GEORGETOWN—The Taste of Georgetown is coming up on Saturday with more than 30 neighborhood restaurants participating, to include 1789, Filomena, Thunder Burger, Clyde's and the trio of cupcakes Baked & Wired, Sprinkles and Georgetown Cupcake. There will also be a "wine, ale and spirits" pavilion with more than 25 craft beers and a "pumpkin food fight" in which chefs from six Georgetown restaurants will compete to see who used pumpkin best. Tickets are $5 for one tasting and $20 for five tastings and the whole thing kicks off at 11 a.m. [EaterWire]

FOOD TRUCKS—Food Truck Fiesta reports that about 20 food trucks will congregate in Foggy Bottom near George Washington University for a thing called Truckapalooza.
