Good afternoon, Washington. Below the links, City Paper is pleased to announce winners in its 2009 Inauguration Reader’s Choice Contest.
*Farm Fresh Meat, hoping to cure his blogger’s block, escapes to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
*Got a little thing for one of your local bloggers? Lemmonex at Culinary Couture certainly does:
I have a secret. I have crushes on some of you. My heart flutters at your comments. I await your haikus. I wonder where some of you are when I haven’t heard from you in a few days. I love how I can predict some of your responses. I read some of your blogs and adore the insights in to your life. Really, isn’t this the perfect definition of a crush?
If this sounds familiar, or if you’d just like to meet some of the local Rooshbags, get yourself to Marvin on Friday at 8 p.m. for a D.C. Blogger Happy Hour.
*And speaking of blogger happy hours: Arjewtino reveals the method behind the madness:

*And speaking of bloggers and booze(!): Mr. T in D.C. is hoping to live to 100. His solution? A daily glass of pinot noir. Too bad he can’t find a drinkable one.
