DUPONT CIRCLE—Today through October 27, Urbana is running a special all-you-can-eat deal for Marine Corps Marathon runners. $20 includes a choice of three house-made pastas including Bucatini Amatriciana with guanciale, tomato and parmesan, Tagliatelle with butternut squash, trumpet mushrooms, parsnips and pecorino, and Strozzapreti with duck sausage, mustard greens, roasted garlic and lemon. Diners who just like pasta are also encouraged to get the special — no one has to prove they're entered in the marathon. Chef Ethan McKee also just started selling several $6, to-go retail pastas for Urbana. [EaterWire]
