Please see the food and entertainment options available at the Bannockburn pool this week. The food and concerts (not the pool) are open to the larger community and we encourage folks outside Bannockburn to attend!
Friday (August 11) Pho Wheels 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm & Performance by Lockhouse 11 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Pho Wheels is back by popular demand! For this dinner service they have a new delicious special menu items- Bo Khirria Tacos, Banh Mirria (Beef shanks & carrots on a French baguette), Bò-Kho (Beef Stew), or Bahn Bao (Ball shaped bun stuffed w/chicken or veggie, onions, mushrooms, & veggies w/ a hard-boiled egg inside). Order online here, please be careful to select the correct location (6315 Laverock) and time for when your order should be ready. Pho Wheels offers great Vietnamese food including banh mi sandwiches, pho soup, eggrolls, Vietnamese inspired tacos and Viet iced coffee and Thai iced tea. They can take walk-ups but pre-ordering is advised. This unique Vietnamese comfort food inspired food truck is a family business originally from Houston, Texas, but now roaming the DMV bringing traditional recipes with modern interpretations. Vietnamese food has many influences and PhoWheels cooking is infused with unusual spice combinations, textures and flavors that reflect these influences. As you slurp the beefy broth of a bowl of Pho or bite into a Vietnamese taco or a banh mi sandwich, you will taste the flavor explosion of cilantro, pickled carrots, sriracha and garlic. You will understand the crossroads of Vietnamese cuisine and you will say “YUM! I want more of this food!” Pho Wheels looks “forward” to seeing you soon.
Lockhouse 11 is a Bethesda-Based band made up of four graduated seniors (Saahil Rao, David Smith, Milan Chander, and Eleanor Ohm), that have been together for almost two years. Lockhouse 11 performs mostly covers of classic rock songs, with their love for the Beatles, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Rush evident in their song choices. However, they add a youthful spin to these classic songs that delights audiences around the DMV. Lockhouse 11 will be joined by Camila Mejia, guitarist and friend of the band. They are excited to be performing at the pool one last time before heading off to college!
