A new award, Frequent Cherry Diner was won by Fred Zevin who tried the most Cherry Challenge dishes this year.
The Concept: In the spirit of the old cherry tree tale, we celebrate George Washington's important presence in his hometown of Alexandria by inviting restaurants to participate in this culinary contest! We urge everyone to patronize the participating restaurants during the period and vote for your favorite CHERRY drinks, starters, entrees and desserts.
To Participate: All you need to do is to enjoy the menu item that includes CHERRIES. During the contest period, each patron who orders an item may submit a ballot on which they rate the item on taste, creativity, and presentation. At the end, the ballots will be collected and tallied.
New This Year: A "Frequent Cherry Diner Award" will go to the diner who buys and rates the greatest number of Cherry Challenge entries. (Remember to check the box on the Ballot.)
