What did we do this weekend? Make about 800 sliders at the Sweetlife Festival at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. Many festivalgoers came back for seconds and thirds of Kenji's ultimate sliders. It was a crazy day, not to mention interrupted by some scattered thunderstorms which made for some fun umbrella-protected griddling of burgers. Check out photos of us and other food vendors at the festival!

We had a blast over the weekend feeding muffulettas to a bunch of happy people at the Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. We drove down in the Salumeria Biellese truck with all of our muffuletta supplies: sopressata, capicola, mortadella, provolone, olive salad (eight gallons of it!) and 250 round loaves of bread from Parisi Bakery, fresh-baked just before our 4 a.m. departure Saturday morning (that fresh). Here are some snapshots from the festival, including close-ups of the mighty muffuletta.

Of course the organizers couldn't throw the Sweetlife Festival without serving their own Sweetgreen salads and "sweet flow" (the frozen yogurt). Sweetgreen started back in 2007 when three Georgetown seniors realized that D.C. wasn't eating enough salads. And we don't mean sad, wimpy salads that have you craving a real meal within five minutes—these are hearty, vibrant, colorful, and filling, made with ingredients sourced from local DC-area farms. Check out their Sweetlife Festival menu, and enter to win a pair of tickets!
