Skee-Ball fever: D.C. area blogs

Good afternoon. It’s April Fool’s Day and D.C. area bloggers are having a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed Capital Trail Mix’s post about officials putting D.C.’s beloved cherry blossom trees on the sales block. I had to watch myself today just to make sure I wasn’t taken in by a suspect post. Today’s roundup includes the 411 on D.C.’s Skee-Ball league. I can already smell the freshly fried funnel cake! And the Natural Capital has the April edition of things to look for in nature when you’re out and about.

DCist highlights this impossibly cute photo of the newest zoo baby at the National Zoo. I dare you not to say “awwww …”

If your sport is Skee-Ball, you’re in luck. H Street County Club’s Skee-Ball league is open for sign-ups. You can start your own team or join an existing one. Frozen Tropics has the details.

Water taxi service may start as soon as next week in Southwest Washington . Southwest, the Little Quadrant that Could has the details.

Tadpoles! Morel mushrooms. From our friends at the Natural Capital things to look for in nature in April.

The Triangle reports that the Fifth Street branch of Busboys and Poets will be hosting a community bake sale this weekend to benefit Peace Winds Japan – a non-governmental organization providing emergency relief to the victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading, and just to let you know: There will be a new face in this space come Monday afternoon. Patricia Sullivan will be taking over blog roundup duties. I’ll still be around but I’ll be moving to a new job at The Post. I’ve enjoyed spending time reading all the great work from bloggers in the area and will be sure to be on the lookout for all your most recent posts. In the meantime, feel free to drop Pat a note at sullivanp@washpost.com. I’ll be giving her my list of great blogs in the area, but I know she’ll be on the lookout for more.
