Interesting concept: the Columbia Heights "Dishcrawl" or food tour

You've heard of bar crawls, where you go from bar to bar and have a drink or two in each spot -- and our neighborhood is well positioned for them, with so many places in close proximity. However, I recently heard about a "dishcrawl," or more properly the Columbia Heights Food Tour, where you visit four different eateries in the neighborhood. A fun idea. Some friends recently did a similar pizza tour, going from Moroni Bros. to Red Rocks to Pete's Apizza, but that was just an informal thing.

The Dishcrawl has 4 tickets left at $45 each, and they don't say the restaurants ahead of time, so it's a surprise. They're supposedly giving hints on their Twitter account, @DishcrawlDC but I have yet to see any.

In any case, here's a bit more on the concept from their website (where you can also get the tickets.)
A culinary destination for in-the-know foodies, Columbia Heights offers the perfect ingredient for a flavorful and sensory experience. On Wednesday, January 23, join us as we tour four Columbia Heights eateries where you'll taste specialties from local favorites and up-and-coming hotspots. Don’t wait, get your ticket now!

Any guesses as to where they might go? Room 11, Chez Billy, and Meridian Pint come to mind. Maybe Maple or El Chucho.
