Here's a Jayson Werth Cupcake; Best Pizza: Jumbo Slice?

ZOMG CUPCAKES—The Washington Post investigates which DC area cupcake bakeries are getting on the Nationals bandwagon with specialty cupcakes. Georgetown Cupcake has one with a baseball and "Go Nats" pennant on it, while McLean's Fluffy Thoughts Cakes went all out with a cupcake of Jayson Werth's face. [WaPo]

ARBITRARY LISTICLES—Everyone has suddenly noticed that the Daily Meal dropped a list of 35 best pizzerias in America more than a month ago and they are really surprised because Jumbo Slice was named to spot #12 in this arbitrary listicle. The Washington Post argues that Jumbo Slice is not the 12th best pizzeria in America, but rather a "bland carb manna that only acts as a regret accelerant when combined with a belly full of Bud Light and SoCo-and-lime shots." And the City Paper compiles a list of 12 pizzerias in DC that are better than Jumbo Slice. [Daily Meal, WaPo, WCP]

PENN QUARTER—Head to Poste on Sunday for a live broadcast of Foodie & The Beast with radio hosts Nycci and David Nellis. They'll be broadcasting from the restaurant's patio from 11 a.m. to noon. Tickets are $35 and include tastings of Poste's brunch menu, bites of a roast lamb, a Bloody Mary and tastings of Flying Dog beer and Subarashii Kudamono pear wine. Then get 10 percent off brunch if you stay after the show. Make reservations by calling 202-449-7062. [EaterWire]
