Grab bag: posts from D.C.- area blogs

It's Friday the 13th, but so far things seem to be going okay (cross fingers, knock wood.) Today we're back with our daily collection of links from the D.C. area blogosphere. We're also happy to mention two blogs that Buzz readers suggested we (and you) check out.

We generally try to keep it lighthearted in our daily blog roundups, but this post from Philanthropy Front and Center was too important to pass by. The Center has gathered a list of organizations accepting donations for the victims of flooding in Pakistan.

Maybe if we believe it, it will happen? DCist reports that D.C.’s shadow representative Mike Panetta has proposed new statehood plates for D.C. that declare the District is the 51st state. Love the red and white color scheme.

Got talent? Or think you have talent? New Columbia Heights says that Bloombars is looking for musicians and singers to perform at the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace.

Fenty vs. Gray? Prince of Petworth has this great photo of one D.C. household that wants to make it clear where they stand in the mayor’s race.

Time to eat! A soon-to-be-coming-to-a neighborhood near you roundup of food trucks via ReadySetDC. CapMacDC, how about a stop at 15th and L streets NW?

Received email touting two blogs from the D.C. blogosphere that are definitely worth a read, so I want to be sure to mention both. For you foodies, Chad sent a note about Eat More, Drink More, a fun blog about eating and, yes, drinking around the D.C. region. And Niv sent an email suggesting I check out Quotidian Dissent, which "tracks the people and groups that take the time to protest here in Washington, D.C." So please, check these out. And don't be shy about sharing a blog you love. Email me at or just post a comment below.

That's it for today. Hope you have a great weekend and I'll be back on Monday with more posts from the D.C. area blogosphere.
