HANDLE ON HANDEL
Maybe it's because the holiday season already seems to be upon us, but we're excited for an evening of blissful music. The City Choir of Washington will be filling the National Presbyterian Church (4101 Nebraska Ave. NW) on Sunday with the joyous sounds of George Frideric Handel's regal "Coronation Anthems." The program includes Handel's "Dettingen Te Deum," as well as performances by talented soloists from the 2012 Young American Artists Program.
The City Choir of Washington, led by Grammy award-winning Artistic Director Robert Shafer, consists of 140 professional-level volunteer singers who are praised for their beautiful tone.
The performance begins at 5 p.m., and tickets range from $15 to $20. To purchase your ticket, go to thecitychoirofwashington.org.
FALL FOR DIM SUM
Everyone's buzzing about Ping Pong Dim Sum's new seasonally inspired menu that just launched last week. Every dish is infused with fall flavors such as dates, smoked duck, hazelnut, cinnamon and everyone's favorite -- pumpkin. The menu includes standout dishes such as duck and five spice dumpling with a triangular pumpkin pastry packed with savory ingredients, chicken and noodles with braised chicken in a spiced Chinese wine broth with egg noodles, and mandarin and citrus spare ribs paired with a citrus plum sauce. Finish your dinner with a roasted banana and chocolate spring roll or a piece of Ping Pong's molten chocolate cake.
And don't forget about the cocktails! Choose from a variety of new seasonal favorites such as a black currant and hibiscus spritzer or a hazelnut mojito.
The new menu is featured at both of Ping Pong's locations, in Chinatown and Dupont Circle.
