Music x Food Preview: DC’s sweetlife festival

by Powell Bernhardt

If I told you that you could listen to the sounds of 2 Chainz while inhaling divine creations from the likes of Chefs Erik Bruner-Yang, Spike Gjerde, and Jose Andres, you might say, “No lie.”  Well on Saturday May 10th, the ATL bred rapper invades Merriweather Post Pavillion with a symphony of music artists including headliners Lana Del Ray and Foster the People.
