Reminder: Food and Sports Blogger March Madness Happy Hour – Tuesday, 3/16!


Food Bloggers + Sports Bloggers = Happy Hour

Yes, this is my final reminder – the food and sports blogger March Madness happy hour is Tuesday night (3/16)! Come drink with us from 6-9 pm at Clyde’s of Gallery Place. Just a note – we’ve been moved from the sports room to the oyster bar, but don’t worry. There will still be happy hour-ing. Fellow food and sports bloggers, readers, lurkers, sports fans, food fans, and friends all welcome.

RSVP on the DC Food Bloggers Facebook Page.

Join DC Food Bloggers and Sports Bloggers for a March Madness Happy Hour, March 16

DC Food and Sports Blogger Flyer2

Food bloggers. Sports bloggers. Coming together for a common cause: happy hour.

Yes, we just had a food blogger happy hour yesterday – but did you know that there’s another chance to get together with your favorite bloggers this month?

Join DC’s Food Bloggers and DC Sports Bloggers for a March Madness happy hour on Tuesday, March 16 from 6-9 pm at Clyde’s of Gallery Place in the Sports Room (most easily accessed from the Clyde’s theater entrance). Come meet, drink, and mingle with your favorite food and sports bloggers.

RSVP on the Food Bloggers Facebook page.

Now, I’m especially interested in this event because I actually don’t follow any sports – so I’m wondering how, exactly, I will be able to make conversation with sports bloggers. I’m thinking that I’ll do a little thinking about the best food to eat at sporting events (beer, pretzels) – hopefully that will be our common ground.

Please spread the word to your friends and help us celebrate the opening day of March Madness! Or just come out for the food, beer, and the company.

Many thanks to Jim over at SB Nation, who headed up the planning on this one. And thanks to the Food Bloggers planning committee: Arugula Files, Beer Spotter, Biscuits and Such, Capital Cooking, Capital Spice, Common Man Eats, Dining in DC, Girl Meets Food, Gradually Greener, Thrifty DC Cook, and We Love DC.

Food Blogger Happy Hour, March 3 at Vinoteca

Happy Hour Flyer March 3

Happy Hour time!

It’s that time again! Yes, food blogger happy hour time – next Wednesday, March 3 at 6:00 pm. And I’m super excited that it’s at Vinotecta (1940 11th St. NW)  one of my favorite happy hours in the District. I actually had my birthday party there this summer – and they gained my undying affection by throwing in a free bottle of Prosecco (yes, my undying affection is easily bought).

Also, DC Food Bloggers now have a Facebook Fan Page so we can have a virtual hang out space for the community. Are you a fan?

RSVP for the happy hour on the Facebook Page, so we can get a headcount.

Save the Date – Next Food Blogger Happy Hour Feb. 3, 2010 at Againn

Out of the laptop and into the bar.

Were you drooling over pastry chef Genevieve So’s sticky toffee pudding? Well you’ll have a chance to try it – and her other delicious creations – at the next Food Blogger Happy Hour on Wednesday, February 3 at Againn.

The happy hour menu at Againn, DC’s newest gastropub, looks pretty awesome – they have $5 drink and food specials until 7:00 pm. The “coup d’etat” martini, with pineau des cherentes, cava, lemon, and cinnamon is calling my name, as is the house-made pretzel with sea salt and mustard. Come to meet, mingle and share recipe tips with your fellow food bloggers. This is a lovely and welcoming group of people – if you haven’t come to one before then please stop by. We’re very nice.

RSVP over at DC Thrifty Cook, who took the lead on putting this event together.

And thanks to the rest of planning committee, Arugula Files (who deserves special thanks for making the flyer), Beer Spotter, Biscuits and Such, Capital Cooking, Capital Spice, Common Man Eats, Dining in DC, Gradually Greener, and We Love DC.

Food Blogger Post-Holiday Potluck: Wednesday, Jan. 6 at 6:30

Mark your calendars!

Sometimes when the holidays are over, I feel a little let down. After Christmas and New Years, what else is there to look forward to?

Well, now there’s a bright spot on my January calender – a food blogger post-holiday potluck on Wednesday, January 6 at 6:30! Lauren at Capital Cooking has graciously offered up a room in her building for the shindig, and everyone will be bringing a dish or drink to share. With food bloggers doing the cooking or choosing the wine (or beer), I think this will have to be good.

RSVP over at Capital Cooking.

Many thanks to our planning committee: Gradually Greener, The Arugula Files, Capital Spice, Capital Cooking, DininginDC, WeLoveDC, and the Beerspotter. If you want join the planning committee, send me an email and I’ll get you in the loop.

Weekly Roundup: Holiday Cookie Edition


It's cookie time. Now that's my kind of time.

What is it with the cookies? With the exception of an ice cream recipe (I can never resist a good ice cream recipe) all the recipes I want to try this week are cookies. I think that the holidays are just cookie time – people bring them to parties, they give them as presents, they put out plates of them at the office. Hell, even I posted a cookie recipe this week for salty and sweet chocolate thumbprints (which you should make because they’re a-mazing), and usually I’m more of a cake girl.

And no, in case you’re wondering, I haven’t done my holiday shopping. I haven’t even really thought about it. Is it acceptable to give one’s marathon-running sister and theater-loving brother trays of cookies for Christmas? No? I didn’t think so.

Recipes I want to try, as found on the Internet this week:

  • Polenta ice cream, from David Lebovitz. Can I just move to Paris and become his ice cream taste tester? Please?
  • Chocolate creme de menthe bars, from A Measured Memory. These seriously look like these mint brownies I used to get from Humble Bagel, this bagel shop across the street from my middle school. God those were good. And God, these look good too.

And in other news:

  • The Tipsy Baker shares her thoughts on “Cleaving,” Julie Powell’s new memoir about her obsession with butchering, and her extra-marital affair (and yes, that’s the same Julie Powell of the Julie/Julia Project).
  • The Arugula Files is asking for your input about what she should make from the farmer’s market.
  • Micheal Voltaggio wins Top Chef. It feels weird that that means nothing to me, after recapping Top Chef last season (I was rooting for Carla Hall, by the way). The Voltaggio brothers, both of which were Top Chef finalists, have launched a new Web site where you can keep tabs on the brothers. So you can . . . stalk them? Via Top Shelf.
  • The Washington Post published an investigation into Founding Farmer’s food sourcing (the restaurant has built its brand on the image that they get their food from small family farms). What did they find? Well, some of the food comes from small farms, but a lot if it doesn’t. It’s an interesting look at the difference between a brand promise and the reality of running a restaurant. And I’m still planning on going there with Miss. Nonnka, by the way.
  • The Washington Post publishes their holiday cookie guide. See what I mean? It’s cookie season.
  • Lemmonex posts her 500th post. It is a cause for celebration. And interviews.

Happy Friday!
