From the December 2014-January 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

 Attention artists and art lovers: In January, the upstairs dining room at Sprig & Sprout (2317 Wisconsin Ave.) will start doubling as a gallery. Each month, the restaurant plans to display the work of one local artist. First Mondays—beginning January 5—will feature a public art opening with specially priced drinks and finger foods. The restaurant is actively seeking submissions from interested artists.

The artwork will be for sale directly from the artists, and the restaurant will not take a commission on any sales, says co-owner Jennifer Hoang. “We believe the relationship is already mutually advantageous, and we want the artists to benefit as much from their work as possible,” she explains.

The restaurant’s Supper Club tasting dinners are “still going strong,” Hoang adds. These prix fixe meals are usually scheduled for the third and fourth Mondays of the month, though in December, the supper club will be held on December 8 due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Sprig & Sprout (2317 Wisconsin Ave.) is launching two Facebook-related drawings for free food and drink.

Starting this week, the Vietnamese restaurant will reimburse the lunch order of one customer every Tuesday between 11 am and 4 pm. On Tuesday mornings, Sprig & Sprout’s owners will post a random number on the restaurant’s Facebook page. When a customer’s order number matches that random number, the customer’s order (up to $20 worth) will be reimbursed. See the restaurant’s website for rules.

Along with that weekly lunch lottery, the restaurant is holding a monthly raffle for a gift certificate—and the more people enter, the bigger that certificate will be. To enter, post a photo of yourself eating at Sprig & Sprout on their Facebook page according to the contest rules.

Sprig & Sprout already hosts very popular tasting dinners that tend to sell out well in advance. The new contests are meant to engage customers in a more spontaneous way, says co-owner Jennifer Hoang. “We decided we wanted to be more interactive with our customers, plus have a little more fun on Facebook,” Hoang stated in a press release. “It makes eating here a bit more fun, and possibly rewarding.”
