Lunchline with Clinton Yates: Blossoms, marathoners and trivia night

It’s finally Friday, and in today’s edition of the Lunchline, Clinton Yates rounds up the biggest events of the weekend as well as the day’s buzziest news stories: social-media use by teachers, the 400,000 Washington area resident who went hungry during the recession, and — never to be left out — lurking journalists.

Yates also gives a word of warning to anyone thinking of venturing into D.C. to see the cherry blossoms this weekend: “The festival, coupled with the National Marathon, means that, starting tomorrow, downtown D.C. is going to be a complete zoo. I love the trees as much as the next guy, but the abundance of fanny packs, strollers and those creepy shoes that look like gloves for your feet is a bit much for me to hit the opening weekend.”

Check out today’s Lunchline for these and other stories from The Washington Post and its partner sites, and click here to sign up for The Lunchline newsletter.

And for all my fellow Clinton Yates fans out there: He is hosting a trivia night Sunday at 8 p.m. at Adam’s Morgan’s Bedrock Billiards that Yates promises “will make you smarter.”
