Fried beer & bagpipes: D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors
Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. We didn't think it was possible, but apparently culinary masterminds in Texas are offering consumers ... fried beer. Our friends at Crispy on the Outside have the scoop. Meanwhile, we've got visions of truffle frites and Treetinis dancing through our heads, but that's probably because Wednesday is the monthly D.C. Food Blogger happy hour. All the details and more below.

Who knew? Ode Street Tribune reports that Rosslyn is becoming a hot spot for bagpiping.

Macheesmo offers some advice for folks worried about egg safety in light of the recent salmonella outbreak and nationwide egg recall. One bit of advice: Consider buying eggs at your local farmer’s market.

JDLand has photos from today’s Canal Park groundbreaking in Southeast. The park, which will stretch from I to M streets SE, not far from the headquarters of the Department of Transportation, is slated to open next fall.

Crispy on the Outside offers the latest in fried foods via ABC News.com: Fried beer. Seriously folks, is there anything that can't be thrown into a deep fryer?

You are cordially invited to D.C.’s Food Blogger happy hour Wednesday at Poste. It’s the one year anniversary of the monthly gathering. Girl Meets Food has the scoop.

That's it for today. Hope you had a great day. Keep your fingers crossed that Hurricane Earl decides to pass us by. After all, we've got a holiday weekend coming up and we want to be able to enjoy all three days. Back tomorrow with more fun posts from D.C.’s fabulous blogosphere.

And how, exactly, do you know what the source of the "local farmer's" eggs are? You think that nobody who sells at a farmers market ever cheats and resells stuff they bought at Safeway or Giant?
