Happy St. Patrick's Day folks...just some musings and gossip today.

Hope everyone got a good Reuben today, or at least some corned beef and cabbage.
I made my own at home..
Just wanted to mention the article in the post today, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/16/AR2010031600921.html
It's about local slaughterhouses and the trials/tribulations of trying to eat healthy, locally sourced meats. I laud these folks for trying to do the right thing by the animals and for the consumers.
The article mentions Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms in VA, whom you may have heard of if you've read "The Omnivore's Dilemma". Also mentioned is one of my home-town fav's, Oren Molovinsky, GM of Mie N Yu in Georgetown.
Also of note this week:
Fire Station 1 in Silver Spring is getting closer to opening. Look for an entertainment-laden experience.
Fireworks Pizza in Arlington is looking towards a late May opening. I'm glad to see these folks venturing closer to the city. It will be helmed by Jon Hoffmeyer, previously of Legal Seafoods (old co-worker of mine) and Great American Restaurants. Look for some of the best pizza around from this crew.
Thanks for reading folks.
