Mini Road Trip, Anyone?

D.C.’s exploding food scene not enough to quench your appetite? Only in Your State has a fine listicle of restaurants throughout Maryland that any self-respecting Mid-Atlantic resident should make a point to eat at during the coming year. And yep, there are lots (and lots) of crabcakes. [OIYS]

The Sehkraft Shutter

Clarendon beer and entertainment restaurant Sehkraft Brewing will be closing its doors tomorrow, January 10, reports ARLNow. This comes about a year after the joint opened. Sehkraft’s time before opening was marked by many logistical and permit-based struggles. [ARLNow]

Meme Me, George

It’s time for another meme brief. Farmers & Distillers commissioned a portrait from artist Nathan Loda, depicting a “millennial” George Washington — complete with man-bun and Ray Ban-esque specs in his vest pocket. Happily, Washingtonian took this opportunity to meme-ify the first president with his best imagined pick-up lines. Click over for a little Monday morning LOL. [Washingtonian]
