To Do: Smithsonian Folklife Festival

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:


Nakey Tshoem
Chicken (shredded), fiddleheads, cheese, chiles, onion, garlic, ginger, and special seasonings served with Bhutanese rice

Ema Datsi

Cheese Quesadillas
Two flour tortillas filled with melted cheese, grilled onions, and peppers, served with rice and beans
