Outdoor romance in D.C.? D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani
Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. We're halfway through the week and it looks like the weather is just going to be spectacular this weekend. Rumors of temps in the 50's. We've got a nice mix of posts from the D.C.-area blogosphere: candy sushi, pop culture icons and the Smithsonian and a blogger farewell.

Last week it was Farrah Fawcett's orange bathing suit - this week Around the Mall reports that Eddie Van Halen's guitar joins the collection at the National Museum of American History.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, The Natural Capital asks: what's the most romantic outdoor spot in the D.C.-area? Nominations please.

Others may call us weather wimps, but data from Capital Bikeshare indicates we may be heartier than some expect. The WashCycle reports that despite the cold temperatures, ice and snow, bike share is only down 10 to 20 percent this winter season. has a list of the most dangerous on-ramps in Arlington.

Silver Spring-based Historian For Hire signs off. He and his family will be moving to Atlanta where his wife has a new job.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading -- and welcome to the blog roundup's new home. The Buzz is a new blog that focuses on things that folks around the D.C.-area are talking about. So be sure to come back and see what's buzzing.
