Go for the Gold with Olympic Specials Tomorrow

Looking for a way to celebrate the beginning of the Summer Olympics tomorrow? Well you don't have to scramble to buy that last minute ticket to China, you can stay right here in town and celebrate with some great meals.

In Shirlington, Ping by Charlie Chiang will be featuring eight entrees for $8.00 for eight hours. But don't worry if you can't make it tomorrow, during the entire games, Ping will be offering a "Summer Olympic ‘Pentathlon’ Prix-Fixe Menu consisting of an amuse bouche, appetizer, soup, entrĂ©e and dessert for $28.88 per person.

If you're looking for something downtown, look no further than The Source, Wolfgang Puck's Washington contribution, where Executive Chef Scott Drewno will be serving up a three course menu for $35 that includes dishes such as, "Roasted Duck with scallion wraps and Mandarin Orange reduction, Hot and Sour Soup with jumbo lump crab and pork tenderloin, and Kung Pao prawns with a spicy garlic-chili sauce and toasted peanuts."

If you know of any other specials going on during the Olympics, let me know so I can post them. Until then, let the games begin!
