Metro-themed sneakers? D.C. blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. It's Friday at last and Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind on whether we'll have snow flurries Saturday. Plenty of great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere, including some amusing Metro-themed gift suggestions from Unsuck DC Metro. There's also a parade of lights Saturday in Southwest D.C. Read on.

Folks around the D.C. area were especially generous this Thanksgiving season. The CAFB blog has this report on holiday donations to the Capital Area Food Bank. The food bank received an impressive 170,000 pounds of food over the past month through food drives and individual donations. Read more here.

Unsuck DC Metro presents its 2010 gift guide. Love the Metro car squeeze toy, but have some serious reservations about the sneakers.

The PG Politics blog wonders about recent news that incoming Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker plans to fire Police Chief Robert Hylton.

There will be a tree lighting and parade of lighted boats Saturday in Southwest D.C. There will be music and food. The festivities begin at 4 p.m. Southwest … the Little Quadrant that Could has more details.

From the Van Ness blog, some helpful holiday shipping tips, complete with dates for when you need to get stuff in the mail. After all, what good is all that shopping if the gifts don’t get there?

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and stay warm this weekend.
