Stay cool & use spell check: 5 fun blogs

Friday. Friday. Friday. Friday. Did I mention it's Friday. After a record breaking winter -- looks like we may be on our way to a record breaking summer. (They've hung photos from February's "Snowmageddon" in the elevator of my apartment building in a bid to make us feel better.) In honor of yet another D.C. heat wave -- we've got posts to keep you cool (and green) and a warning about the importance of spell check. Read on!

It's called a dictionary, dude. A reminder of the importance of spell check – or for you old school folks – the dictionary from DCist.

DC Socialite has the date for this year’s Capital Food Fight – a “Top Chef” like competition among D.C. area chefs that benefits the D.C. Central Kitchen. BLT Steak’s Victor Albisu will battle with Will Artley, of Evening Star Café, the Source’s Scott Drewno and a chef to be named later. The chefs will compete in 10-minute long “battles” a la “Iron Chef.”

More ice please? The most strenuous workout some of you may be doing in this heat is moving from the couch to the refrigerator. But just in case you get ambitious, Famous DC has some stay cool while you workout tips.

Keeping cool and green. If running your air conditioning nonstop is making you feel guilty about the ozone, DC Ladies offer you some tips for keeping cool while staying green.

That's it for now. Stay cool and thanks for reading. Is there a great blog out there that we're missing? Drop us a note at
