Our Social Community in Washington DC

The Grapes & Grains community was created to connect people in a diverse and multicultural city such as DC, using the three most fundamental components of socializing, found in every culture around the world—Food, Drinks and the Arts.

Our events, while creating a fun social atmosphere, allow our members to learn about their favorite drink, i.e. wine, beer, whisk(e)y and other spirits, while sharing their own culture with others through food and the arts.

Although we have over 2500 members, our events are typically limited to smaller group sizes, where the objective is to socialize around food and drinks, converse and enjoy the diverse company of others, which normally does not happen in larger group events.

Our Motto - 'Life is too short and time is too precious to waste on bad food, drink or company'.

Even though the primary objective of our group is to socialize and have a good time around food, drinks and the arts, we also aspire to have a meaningful impact on our local communities.

Our Social Responsibility - We aim to promote arts and culture while supporting the work of our local DC artists.

As we grow, we continuously evolve by bringing together new cultural experiences and ideas, through different professionals and artists. Our ‘Dinner with an Artist' program, created by collaborating with different local art communities and local restaurants invites different artists to join us for dinner, injecting a bit of creativity, culture and new experiences into our evening of socializing, while supporting the work of our local DC artists.
