Discount web site LivingSocial is celebrating the second anniversary of its very first deal on Wednesday with a limited special on cupcakes. One buck gets you a box of four from Hello Cupcake. The deal goes live at 11 a.m. Log on, select “Instant Deals,” and look for the special.

Meanwhile, some new sites are getting into the local deal-brokering game. The Examiner reports that Gilt City, an offshoot of the designer fashion website Gilt Groupe, and Rue Washington, D.C., part of RueLaLa.com, are both launching in the District. Early Wednesday morning, RueLaLa is offering its first D.C. deal, a three-course meal with wine pairings at Urbana Restaurant & Wine Bar for $100.
