You don’t have to be an architect to build an amazing gingerbread house! If you think you have the talent, put your icing where your mouth is and enter the 5th Annual Gingerbread House Competition sponsored by Poste Moderne Brasserie.
Throughout the month of December, any Washingtonian can create a gingerbread house and enter the competition. All you have to do is drop off your house at Poste Moderne Brasserie located at the Hotel Monoco in Gallery Place. There’s even a kids category for young artists. When you drop off the gingerbread house, you’ll enjoy a complimentary glass of housemade eggnog. A non-alcoholic version is available for the kids.
Judging will be done by restaurant guests and Facebook fans throughout December with the final votes tallied on December 24. Winners will receive amazing prizes in order of their rankings:
- 1st place: Weekend night stay at Hotel Monaco with a $150 gift certificate at Poste Moderne Brasserie
- 2nd place: One-night stay at Hotel Palomar DC , and brunch for two at Urbana Restaurant & Wine Bar
- 3rd place: Weekend night stay at the Hotel Madera
- Children’s prize: For children 12 and under – an ice cream party for six at Poste Moderne Brasserie
So, if you’ve made a gingerbread house and you want to show it off, or if you just want to come and critique other’s work, stop by Poste today. And make sure to check out the new seasonal drinks. Poste’s mixologist, Rico Wisner has prepared holiday favorites like Eggnog, Hot Hazelnut Cider and Hot Chocolate for guests.
