Looking for something to do this weekend between the predicted thunderstorms? Make your way down to the mall for the 2008 Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
This year's festival features exhibits from Bhutan and Texas (I'd like to see the dart board they used to pick those two places), below is a sampling of the menu:
Chicken (shredded), fiddleheads, cheese, chiles, onion, garlic, ginger, and special seasonings served with Bhutanese rice
National dish of chiles with cheese, served with Bhutanese rice
Pork and cheese filled dumplings
Grilled flank steak with onions and peppers, served with rice and beans
Two flour tortillas filled with melted cheese, grilled onions, and peppers, served with rice and beans
Deep-fried corn tortillas filled with chicken, lettuce, and sour cream, served with rice and beans
