Georgetown Cupcakes is one of the District's most well-known cupcake shops.

On this week of oppressive heat and massive power outages, we bring you "Down the Hatch," a show full of flavors meant to soothe your soul. We'll go inside the world of ramen, and hear why that Cup O'Noodles that sells for less than a buck is suddenly getting the gourmet treatment. We'll check out big changes at a suburban ice-cream stand that's become a cold and creamy community institution. And we'll learn why it isn't always easy for local breweries to deliver ice-cold beers to their customers.
