Pop-up dining? D.C.-area blogs

Good afternoon. A pretty nice day out there. Hope you had a chance to get out and enjoy yourself since the Capital Weather Gang says it’s only going to get colder and wetter as the week progresses. Sigh. Today’s entries from the D.C.-area blogosphere? A chance to have fun and benefit a good cause as well as a too good to pass up caption contest from Swimming in Quicksand. And it wouldn’t be spring in D.C. without a shot of cherry blossoms. Read on!

Restaurants, then food carts, then food trucks – and now – a pop-up restaurant? Chef Byron Brown will be launching a pop-up restaurant on the law of Yards Park, just a few blocks from Nationals Stadium, Metrocurean reports. The restaurant will be open for six weeks.

It’s that time of the year folks. Cherry blossoms! Thanks to the Georgetown Metropolitan.

From Swimming in Quicksand – a too good to pass up caption contest.

Greater Greater Washington features an interesting map of neighborhoods in D.C. with the highest number of residents who commute by bike. Winners? Northwest and Capitol Hill.

Some good fun for a good cause – the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop is sponsoring its fourth annual Art and Go Seek Scavenger Hunt. It’s a fun evening of exploring questions about art, history, and notorious people and places in the neighborhood for teams of two to six people. Proceeds help fund arts education programs for children and adults. East City Art has details.

Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day. I’ll be back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C.-area blogosphere. If you’d like to explore the D.C.-area blogosphere yourself, take a spin through our local blog directory, which features hundreds of blogs sorted by neighborhood and topic.
