On July 4th, the Willard InterContinental Washington, D.C. will host its annual block-party style barbecue on its vibrant outdoor terrace on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The Willard's award winning bistro, Cafe du Parc, will fire up its grills, serving American classics like hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken and vegetarian wraps for guests to enjoy outside on its patio under bright, patriotic umbrellas. Live music will accompany the spread from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
If the Willard is not your only Independence Day destination, Café du Parc will also offer perfect-for-picnic carry out lunches starting at $15.00, which include an entree fresh off the grill, coleslaw, chips and a bottle of water along with all the condiments and necessary small-wares. Guests can carry these take-out lunches to capital-area festivities or sit at one of the hotel's onsite picnic tables.
Refreshing popsicles, homemade lemonade and fruit selections make for the perfect snack and will be available for $4.00 each. A variety of wines and beers will also be available all day as well as an à la carte dining menu.
Visitors can stop by Café du Parc post fireworks to enjoy the restaurant's extended hours, as it plans to stay open until 10:30 p.m. for the special occasion.
