$999.99 a pound? 5 fun D.C. blogs

Tuesday morning note: I'm off today. To get yourself up and running without me, enjoy the Getting Up Guide or our new sports blog, The Early Lead.

Happy Monday. I love the D.C. area blogosphere because there's always a surprise or an intriguing tidbit, or two or three tidbits, to be found. Today we've got bargain hunting, tourist fashion and an item that goes for $999.99 a pound at a Safeway. Read on.

Bargain hunter alert. reminds us that Nordstrom Rack is set to open in Pentagon Centre next month. I can confirm the signage is already up. Now they just have to start stocking.

Virginia wines snag some awards at the Atlantic Seaboard Wine competition, including a “Best of Show” for Rosemont of Virginia in LaCrosse, reports the Piedmont Virginian.

Korean barbeque tacos are all the talk of Los Angeles – now they’ll be the talk of D.C. Prince of Petworth reports a new taco truck will soon be cruising D.C. streets.

Tired of “We (heart) D.C.?” ReadysetDC wants your feedback on a new T-shirt design for the tourists who flock to the nation's capital each year (and, I suppose, also for spirited locals who want to show of their city pride). They’ve gathered some of the area’s most talented designers to come up with a new image for Washington. Vote on your favorite here.

The Georgetown Metropolitan presents: yours for just $999.99 a pound at the Georgetown Social Safeway. (Maybe you can use the money you save while shopping at Nordstrom Rack.)

That's it for today. Thanks for reading. And thanks to the alert reader who tipped us off to a new blog we'll definitely put on our blogroll: . Keep those suggestions coming.
