Green can be gorgeous & other fun blogs

By Washington Post editors

Happy Thursday.

So what does the D.C.-area blogosphere hold for us today? We've got kiddie drinks for adults and a house in Bethesda that takes "green" to a whole new level. Another blogger asks: Could D.C. soon have a little slice of New York in its midst?

His birthday was Tuesday. He pitched a winning game Wednesday. So why should the celebration end? I Spy DC offers some suggestions for an extended Stephen Strasburg celebration. One thought: “Watch Mad Men’s season premier because everyone, even $15.1 million pitchers, could learn from Don Draper’s style.”

Nick over at Macheesmo offers us an alternative for those who love potato salad, but don’t want to risk the potentially stomach-churning mayo+potato+summer heat equation.The new equation? A little lemon + potatoes + a little olive oil = yum.

Some of us never grow up. Some of us do, but like to remember the good old days. Either way, Wonkabout offers these thoughts on how to relive childhood in a grown-up way – think of it as childhood favorites for the over-21 crowd.

D.C. Mud gives us a great peek into a “net zero energy house” in Bethesda – a home that strives to use only as much energy as it produces. Turns out green can be gorgeous. asks: Could the future Crystal City become our own “Manhattan on the Potomac?”

That's it for now. Thanks for reading. We'll be back tomorrow with more fun posts from the D.C.-area blogosphere. Got a favorite blog? Let us know. Post a comment below or e-mail
