MULTIPLE LOCATIONS— D.C. Beer Week will be here before very long. The date is set; the festivities will kick off September 24.

NOVELTY FOODS—Republic Kolache has a new flavor in the works and it sounds intriguing: elote, or Mexican corn. It's a collaboration with chef Matt Baker of the upcoming Gravitas. They'll have it at their Hill Country pop-up this weekend. [EaterWire]

BROOKLAND— Fans of Japanese culture should mark the calendar for September 13. Sumo Stew, an event, will feature the traditional food of the sumo wrestler, chanko nabe, plus bento boxes developed by D.C. chefs. There will be whiskey and desserts too. More info here; tickets are $50. The event's at Right Proper's production facility. [EaterWire]
