Tomatoes, Picasso and other blog posts

By Washington Post editors

It's Friday and the D.C.-area blogosphere is filled with all sorts of fun posts and useful advice. Macheesmo's got what looks like a great pasta recipe to capture those last few summer tomatoes (love the photos!) and Frozen Tropics has a recommendation for those who want to explore their artistic side.

Greater Greater Washington has some ideas for improving the U Street-Garfield Line (the 90s bus line), which connects Adams Morgan, U Street, Bloomingdale/Eckington, Capitol Hill and Anacostia. It’s D.C.’s third-busiest line.

Among the many rules of haircuts: Never sneeze while sitting in the chair. iMetro has a photo to explain.

Tomorrow is DC VegFest. Lunching in the DMV says everyone is welcome to explore meat-free cuisine from area restaurants. As she notes: Good food doesn’t have to come from an animal.

Speaking of meat-free eating, Macheesmo has a simple -- but I’m betting tasty – recipe for cherry tomato pasta. A little parmesan cheese and some crusty bread and you’re in food heaven.

Frozen Tropics blogs about an event designed to bring out your inner Picasso – it’s called ArtJamz. Register, and for a $60 fee you can grab a drink, some art materials (paint, brushes, canvas) and you're off. Fab music and hors d'oeuvres are also included in your fee. Sounds like fun. (And just think of the art you’ll produce after a few drinks!)

That's it for now. Have a great weekend and check back in this space Monday for a roundup of more intriguing blog posts from the D.C. blogosphere. And thanks to all the great bloggers who've e-mailed me suggesting great posts to link to.
