LISTICLESThe Washingtonian has a great listicle out today of the seven most overpriced dishes in DC. Of course, there's the $1,000 sundae at Serendipity 3, the $56 lobster tail at the Palm and $12 corn flakes at Blue Duck Tavern — and there's more where that came from. [The Washingtonian]

This is the first in a series of cooking classes — in April Critchley will demo lamb and then cocktails in June. The class gets underway at 3 p.m. on Saturday; call 202-956-6650 for reservations.
