A Popcorn Food Truck Is Coming; A Bacon and Beer Party

FOOD TRUCKS—Here is a terrific idea: a gourmet popcorn truck! Fortunately, this very thing is headed our way in February 2012 in the form of a truck named Popped! Republic. Because everyone knows that DC can really only be defined by politics, lobbying and monuments, flavors include K Street Kettle Corn, Congressional Cheddar and Capitol Caramel. [FTF]

CHARITYWIRE—Speaking of food trucks, tomorrow's Farragut Friday will be all about do-gooding. A number of trucks gathered there around lunchtime will donate 10 percent of their profits to Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation. Participating trucks include Carnivore BBQ, Eat Wonky, Fojol Bros., Mojo Truck, Tasty Kabob and Takorean. [EaterWire]

NATIONAL HARBOR—Please clear your calendars for Saturday if you happen to enjoy both bacon and beer. Thrillist writes that Heavy Season will be on hand at the National Harbor with 10 of their beers, a butchering demo and a chefs competition. [Thrillist]

NOMA—Tomorrow evening brings the next in Watershed's supper series: an oyster roast. For $75 per person, you'll get oysters, biscuits, New England clam chowder, fried chicken, baked potatoes, string beans and chocolate banana bread pudding. More information available here. [EaterWire]

EASTERN MARKET—For those who feel like boozing while they peruse the farmers market on Saturday, Eastern Market's North Hall will host a wine tasting from noon until 5 p.m. with more than 45 wines from the Washington Wine Academy. For $20, you'll get 15 tastings if you buy online; if not, $5 will get you three tasting tickets at the door. [EaterWire]

HOLIDAY GUIDES—It is holiday gift guides time of year once again and DCist is up first with an actually very good list of food gifts from places like Hill's Kitchen, Copper Pot Food Company, Cork Market, Hana Market, Seasonal Pantry and more. [DCist]
