A Brussels sprout burger? D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. I know The Capital Weather Gang says it's slightly warmer today, but it still feels cold to me. (And yes, Mom, I'm wearing my hat.) But why focus on the weather, when we can focus on all the interesting topics being bandied about in the D.C.-area blogosphere. It's only January, but Easter has apparently arrived at at least one local Giant store. And Burger King has introduced a new burger flavor that involves Brussels sprouts. Guess they're not just for Thanksgiving anymore.

The 42 makes a case that area residents should support the Historical Society of Washington, which will reopen this week after budget troubles forced it to close down for a bit. The Society is located at the Carnegie Library at Mount Vernon Square in N.W. D.C. “HSW is still the standard bearer for the telling of the District's story for visitors and residents alike. They deserve to be supported.” Click though, read more and see what you think.

Just in time for . . . Valentine’s Day? Jason from Jason’s View From D.C. says he spotted Easter candy at his local Giant. For those counting, Easter isn't until April 24.

From our friends at So Good Burger King has introduced a burger with Brussels sprouts. Yes, you read that correctly. Alas, it’s only available in the U.K. (would love to see the marketing report behind this launch)

For her Etiquette Tuesday post, Johnna Knows Good Food presents, how to set a proper table.

Susie’s Budget and Policy Corner reminds us that Bread for the City is celebrating a milestone this Friday. The D.C.-based charity is hosting a ribbon cutting for its newly expanded facility (a bigger medical clinic and food pantry!) in N.W. D.C.

That's it for now. Be sure to check back tomorrow when I'll have a new roundup of intriguing posts from the D.C.-area blogosphere. After all, you never what you'll find in the D.C.-area blogosphere.
