José Andrés and World Central Kitchen have recruited 30 restaurants to participate in the annual Dine-N-Dash fundraising event to benefit the nonprofit global charity as restaurants at The Wharf, located in Southwest DC, join the event for the first time on Wednesday, June 12.

Leave your wallet at home and dine in 30 top DC restaurants in one night. The restaurants dedicate themselves to Dine-N-Dash participants who can eat specialized dishes and drink heartily until they are ready to dash to another restaurant for four hours over one evening. While 30 restaurants await, Parklife DC has found its best to focus on a close nexus of five or six destinations. This year, six restaurants at The Wharf join the traditional assortment of restaurants in Penn Quarter and the 14th Street Corridor.

Dine-N-Dash will provide shuttle buses, courtesy of DoorDash, to transport diners in between all three participating neighborhoods. Catch them at the neighborhood hubs:

  • Penn Quarter: Intersection of 8th and I Streets NW
  • 14th Street: Intersection of 14th and Riggs Streets NW
  • Wharf: In front of 800 Maine Avenue SW
