WASHINGTON D.C.Chicago q's Lee Ann Whippen and her Firefighting BBQ Team beat out 38 other teams for the title of Grand Champion at the 20th Anniversary Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle. This qualifies her for the Jack Daniels World Championship competition and the American Royal Invitational later this year. Congrats! [EaterWire]

NORTH CENTER—Want to get some hemp that won't get you in hot water? Swing by Sola, where chef Carol Wallack has created a three-course prix-fixe menu around hemp. The menu includes spicy Asian greens with hemp-seed cumin vinaigrette, hemp-sesame seed-crusted salmon; and hemp seed shortbread with strawberries. [EaterWire]

EVERYWHERE—Happy 4th! Eater is off until midday on Thursday. Party safe and have a great holiday.
