IKEA's big surprise: D.C. area blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. So what are D.C. area bloggers talking about today? Free bikes, green Christmases and a New York Times story that has residents on Capitol Hill feeling a bit miffed.

The Commuter Page Blog reports that IKEA had a special surprise for its employees this holiday season: everyone received a free bicycle to take or ride home as a ‘thank you’ for their hard work.

The Hill is Home has something to say about The New York Times' piece on the plethora of new dining choices that have recently popped up on the Hill. Thanks for the shout out – but you might want to rethink the headline.

Metro’s velvet rope? Unsuck DC Metro has some great shots of a passenger and his attempt to carve out a bit of “personal space” for himself on a train.

Some tips on how to be green this holiday season – both in your holiday displays and your gift giving, from Philanthropy Front and Center.

She’s a mind-reader! After telling us where in D.C. to find the best fireplaces, Metrocurean returns with the 10 best spots for a cup of hot chocolate.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading. I'm back tomorrow with more great posts from D.C. area bloggers.
