Beer goggle science: 5 D.C.-area blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. A very gray Wednesday -- with more storms expected this afternoon. Sigh. But no worries, we've got some great posts from the D.C.-area blogosphere to brighten up your day. You could learn about the D.C.-region's newest bike share program and pick up a funnel cake at the same time. And Maryland Daily Photo has a nice shot to help you remember why we love summer.

If you’re curious about the new Capital Bikeshare program, the Commuter Page blog reminds us that we can get a sneak peek at the bikes and docking stations at the Arlington County Fair, which runs Thursday through Sunday. See what you think of the area’s newest bike share program – and pick up a funnel cake while you’re at it.

It’s National Pop Tart Day and to celebrate the folks at California Tortilla are giving away free Pop Tarts and the chance to win free burritos for a year. We’re full just thinking about it. Thanks to Frugal Friends in Northern Virginia for the tip.

We know it’s overcast outside, but this shot from Maryland Daily Photo reminds us how much we love summer (even when it’s humid.)

The Smithsonian’s Surprising Science presents the science behind “beer goggles.” I wonder if the researchers got a grant to study this?

Modern Domestic presents: Chocolate Nutella Profiteroles. Do I really need to say anything more? (Good thing photos don't have calories.)

Happy blogiversary! The Restonian celebrated its third blogiversary last Friday. In fact, they were so busy blogging over there they forgot the date. Congrats guys.
