Choice Bites 8.16.2011

The Chesapeake Crab and Beer Festival will be held on August 20 at the National Harbor Waterfront. For more details, click here.

Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio makes an appearance in the Smurfs Movie. Of course, unless you have kids, you're not going to shell out good money to see it, so here's a clip.
