AWARDS SEASON— Not a lot of D.C. representation in the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards, but here's a good one: Jack Rose is a nominee for World's Best Spirits Collection. [TotC]

ARLINGTON— The owner of Arlington's Faccia Luna claims more than 300 first dates at the restaurant have resulted in marriage. Sounds like a regular e-Harmony ad over there. [ARLNOW]

ANNAPOLIS— Annapolis diner institution Chick & Ruth's will turn 50 this August. [GoG]

MERRIFIELD— Red Apron is launching a "beast of the month club." They'll feature a different unique heritage breed of animal each month by offering different cuts in the butcher case and then end the month with a whole-animal dinner. First up: a "Russaback" (Russian Boar crossed with a Saddleback from a Roanoke farm). [EaterWire]
