Pumpkins, dog parks, fall fun: D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. My stomach is grumbling, which may be the reason for all the food-related posts in today's blogger roundup. Must be the cooler temperatures. With the help of today's posts, you can channel your inner Julia Child or help name a new dog park. And hey, bloggers like feedback too, so help People Powered Arlington by sharing some of your thoughts.

A preview of the Georgetown Library set to reopen Monday, Oct. 18., after a devastating fire gutted the building in 2007. Thanks to the Georgetown Metropolitan for these preview shots. DC Mud also has a preview.

You (or your dog) could help name the new Clarendon dog park. Arlington officials are looking for feedback. Clarendon Culture has a list of the nominees.

Five (foodie) reasons (besides hot chocolate) to be excited about fall from Johnna Knows Good Food.

Paul Simon sang about “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.” In honor of Halloween, Endless Simmer offers an October version:”100 ways to cook a pumpkin.” (Yes, I know that was kind of a stretch, but I had to try.)

People Powered Arlington has a number of stories in the hopper, examining how on- and off-street parking affects urban communities and documenting the evolution of a cyclist, but is still looking for feedback on what other topics would make great blog posts. Help PPA out.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend. Fall is definitely in the air, so be sure to grab a jacket before heading out the door. That is unless you're the type who wears shorts in winter. Check back Monday for another spin through the D.C. area blogosphere.
