The event is taking place on Wednesday July 20, 2022, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
WHERE: Harvey’s, located in downtown Falls Church, VA, at 513 W. Broad Street, 22046
WHAT: Harvey’s will be donating 10% of the total sales raised on this special evening to the Falls Church Education Foundation. The Neighborhood Barbershop crew and Fin of Mister Finster’s Tattoo Studio will be preparing four food items for sale during the event, each priced at $10 per serving. The three barber contenders will compete for the bestselling dish of the day with the following selections: Dustin’s – Beyond Beef Kofta, Pickled Pineapple Bacon, Chili Sauce; Jay’s – Bacon Wrapped Poblano Pepper stuffed with Chicken Andouille Sausage, corn and Pimiento Cheese and Will’s – Beef stuffed with Harvey’s Mac and Cheese Sauce, rolled in Chiccarones and Barber Sauce. Fin of Finster’s is meeting the food challenge with Fin’s English Roast, Yorkshire pudding and Brown Gravy.
The three battling barbers and tattoo artist have agreed to this friendly competition. The dish that proves to be most popular among the public, selling out first, will become a featured item on Harvey’s menu for one month. The choice dish will continue the fundraising effort. $1 from the sale of each serving of the winning dish at Harvey’s will benefit the Falls Church Education Foundation (FCEF), culminating the end of August, with the gift attributed in the winner’s name. The losing participant, who created the dish that had the least sales on July 20, will receive a replica of the winning dish, in the form of a new permanent tattoo, courtesy of Mister Finster’s Tattoo Studio. The tattoo designs, representing the four competition dishes, will be on display on July 20, over the grill for all to see, to assist with the tally reveal.
Audacious Aleworks and Metro Cellars will be on site pouring selections to pair with each dish. Prices for the featured beverages of this fun-filled evening range from $8-$12 a drink.
“It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to collaborate with our gracious neighbors to give back to the community we serve,” explains Thomas Harvey, the owner and chef of Harvey’s. “We are blessed to have an expansive patio and vibrant partners who enjoy a bit of artistic and friendly competition for a worthy cause. It is exciting to be a part of small businesses in Falls Church who are coming together to assist with the future of this dynamic area. This was an easy decision for us. Any way we can help our community through education is a win for everyone.”
WHY: Falls Church Education Foundation was founded on a commitment to quality education, and that commitment creates a strong bond amongst citizens, teachers, elected officials, and businesses in our little city. The Falls Church Education Foundation (FCEF) was created in 2004 as a 501(c)3 to raise, manage and distribute supplemental funds to enhance the educational experience of Falls Church City Public School (FCCPS) students.
In the 2020-21 academic school year, FCEF awarded over $300,000 in funds to our FCCPS students and staff. Giving is aligned with the FCCPS three pillars: equity of access, staff readiness and preparing students to function in the 21st century. The mission of the FCEF is to support Falls Church City Public Schools by ensuring equity of access, staff readiness, and student preparedness for the 21st century.
