Good afternoon. Some folks think the NCAA Tournament is about basketball, but at least on D.C.-area food blog has found something else to rank: top eats in the college towns that are part of the tournament. Thinking of getting some exercise this weekend? The Natural Capital has some suggestions for outdoor activities you can do on Saturday — the last day of winter.

Leave it to the good folks at Endless Simmer to find a foodie angle on the NCAA tournament. In this post, they rank the 68 teams based on the best over-the-top local foods you’d eat accompanied by several mugs of beer. An example? Memphis BBQ tofu. Mmmmm?

Think spring cleaning at your home is a chore? Try spring cleaning at the Smithsonian. A list from Around the Mall. that details what it take to keep your favorite museums spick and span.

From Every Food Fits, a pitch to help the D.C. Central Kitchen raise funds to start a truck farm. EFF writes: DCCK’s truck will be an educational tool “. . . to teach urban youth about healthy eating and to get them interested in where their food comes from.”

Park View, D.C. reports that there have been several thefts at Rock Creek Cemetery including the loss of an 11-foot bronze work of art. Authorities are looking into the thefts, but asks folks to keep an eye out for suspicious behavior.
