The Foodie Tour

The Ascend GW Marketing Committee launched the 2021 Foodie Tour to tantalize our taste buds, experience some great camaraderie, and to show gratitude for businesses that supported the Feed Your Hospital campaign. This past month, our group headed straight for the dessert, sampling the delectable bingsoo at Siroo and Juk Story in Annadale, VA. Bingsoo or bingsu is shaved ice topped with sweet toppings.Foodie Tour stop #2 was 9292 Pocha (Korean BBQ).
