SOME is excited to partner with our friends at Capital Hilton to kick off the fall season!
Capital Hilton’s Capital Flavors of Fall series is kicking off the fall season, with a pop-up dining experience beginning September 17th through October 4th, where guests will enjoy an authentic German menu at “Schnitzel Und Steins!” for this year’s Oktoberfest festivities.
The hotel will look to highlight the natural beauty of fall in Washington, DC by providing unique and local “to-go picnic” dining options to guests while enjoying a “Monumental Leaf Peeping” experience. In addition, select local brew “Tap Takeovers” are scheduled on weekends as patrons look to unwind after a long day of exploring.
Schnitzel Und Steins Pop-up
On September 17th, the team at Capital Hilton, led by the German native Director of Food & Beverage Stephan Fritz, will be presenting “Schnitzel Und Steins,” in celebration of this year’s Oktoberfest. With Stephan’s influence, the Statler Lounge will be turned into an authentic German dining experience and throughout the two weeks will celebrate with welcomed guests and neighborhood locals.
Leaf Peeping Baskets
Located in the heart of Washington, DC, just blocks away from the White House and National Mall, the Capital Hilton hotel is the perfect place to celebrate the annual changing of the leaves. Whether exploring the Nation’s Capital or the many parks of Northern Virginia and Maryland, there is plenty to see. From October 9th through November 15th, Leaf Peeping Baskets filled with local foods and libations will tantalize taste buds and keep guests energized during the hunt for that perfect foliage photo.
Local Brew Tap Takeovers
Capital Hilton is partnering with local breweries City State Brewing and DC Brau to showcase their locally made beer options, along with fall-themed cocktails such as the German Old Fashioned at Statler Lounge (open 4:30 p.m. – 11 p.m. daily).
Local Partnering to Give Back
Capital Hilton is excited to once again partner with SOME (So Others Might Eat), an interfaith community-based organization in Washington, D.C. that meets the immediate daily needs of people with food, clothing, and healthcare. SOME strives to break the cycle of homelessness by offering medical and dental services, clothing and hot showers, affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling to the poor, the elderly, and individuals with mental illness.
The two organizations have enjoyed a relationship for many years and will continue to this fall, as portions of the proceeds from Steins Und Schnitzel, the Leaf Peeping Baskets, and Tap Takeovers will be donated to SOME. Guest will have the ability to give back to the local community through curated opportunities to volunteer in person at SOME’s historic Dining Room on O Street, NW. Many of the nation’s leaders and celebrities have spent time volunteering at SOME, including former President Barack Obama and (then) Vice President Joe Biden.
Hotel packages are available for guests interested in a trip to Washington, DC to enjoy the Capital Flavors of Fall series with rates starting at $174.00 + tax.
