Pants optional? D.C.-area blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. Friday at last! If today's dusting of snow wasn't enough for you, take heart: The Capital Weather Gang is predicting we'll get as much as an inch of snow Saturday morning.

You’ll be delighted (or horrified) to hear that “No Pants” day on Metro is back, DCist reports. It is slated to take place this Sunday. Consider yourself warned.

With new bike lanes replacing parking spaces along 15th Street NW, David Alpert over at Greater Greater Washington address the question of where trucks should park (even though they really shouldn’t be double parking) – in the bike lane or in the traffic lane.

For some Friday fun -- Lord of Petworth (who is filling in while Prince of Petworth) takes a much needed vacation) has this question for you: if D.C. had a superhero, who should he or she be and what superpowers should he/she possess? /

From the folks at the Natural Capital – things to look for in nature in January.

If you’re tired of paying $$ to have your pants hemmed at the tailor – or have always want to learn to sew, but missed out on high school home-ec classes. Ready, Set DC says U Street’s Ginger Root Design is offering a series of sewing classes – for beginners and for those who are a bit more advanced.

Happy 1st Blogiversary to WashingTina – one of our favorite bloggers. Here’s to many more years of blogging. As part of the celebration, she’d love to hear what some of your favorite WashingTina blog posts were in 2010.

That's it for now. Have a great weekend and check back here Monday for another roundup of intriguing posts from the D.C.-area blogosphere.
