Reminder: Eat My Blog Bake Sale Tomorrow!

Friends, you may have noticed that we love bake sales here just a little bit. An awesome one, called Eat My Blog, is happening tomorrow, at Zeke's Smokehouse in West Hollywood, organized and stocked by LA food bloggers! I am a lagger and thus am not contributing baked goods, but you can bet I'll be there buying, eating, and supporting the LA Food Bank. These deliciously organized blogger-bakers have posted a menu! So I can sit at my desk and drool longingly over rum cakes, butterscotch budino (oh, baby), lemon curd thumbprint cookies, orange and saffron caramels... There appear to be many vegan and gluten-free offerings, and to balance it out the virtue, an inordinate number of bacon-related sweets. Nice. See you there!

C&C: Dupont Circle

Cappuccino and Croissant, Dupont Circle Farmers Market Edition. Unfortunately/fortunately, they do not have a coffee vendor at this charming Washington DC farmer's market, as coffee can not be found growing within 150 miles of the market (don't they know caffeine is the exception to the local rule?!). Nonetheless, there is an Illy coffee shop within a walk, which itself was a treat: I love their artist-rendered cups, and the shops don't exist in LA. A worthwhile mini-escape from the Share Our Strength conference, and good caffeine and sustenance to start off my day shucking collards on the farm.
