D.C.'s bloggers & the magic of kale

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Apologies for not tweeting yesterday's roundup. Technical glitch, which has since been resolved. Phew. In the meantime, I hope your day is going well. D.C.'s bloggers have been busy, and with the Online News Association's annual conference in town this week, it may get even busier for many of them. So what are they blogging about? Food & Think has a fun post about a leafy green and its Halloween connection. The WashCycle tells us about the new "artistic" bike rack installation set for Wednesday. And Capital Spice is back with news of a new addition.

Frozen Tropics reports that the Halloween decorations in front of the Capital City Diner have been stolen – again. Irony alert. The alleged thief was wearing a Vincent Gray “character, integrity” campaign shirt.

Dave Alpert at Greater Greater Washington offers a well-written piece on why D.C. residents should care about Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) elections. While the D.C. mayor and council might get much of the attention and ink, these councils can have a significant impact on life in individual neighborhoods.

The WashCycle has a preview of the new “(Re)cycle" bike rack set to be unveiled in the 1900 block of Pennsylvania Avenue NW tomorrow. It’s another in a series of “artistic” bike racks that have been popping up in the District and communities across the country.

Here you thought it was just another one of those leafy greens – but it turns out that kale has a historic Halloween connection. According to the folks at Food & Think, the Irish thought that kale had magical, fortune-telling properties (bitter tasting kale = bitter spouse.) Included in the post, five ways to cook a leafy green you may never look at the same way again.

Always be closing. Greed is good. Sweating the Big Stuff offers his list of the top five money movies.

Congratulations to Capital Spice on their new addition to the family. (Note the foodie-themed onesie.)

That's it for now. Thanks much for reading. Remember, suggestions about great D.C. area blogs that I might be missing are always welcome. Also, if you're celebrating a blogiversary, drop me a note and let me know. You can also register your blog in The Post's Local Blog directory. It's just another way to let folks know you're out there.
