Fresh off the presses...of other blogs

In case you haven't seen them, there were two pretty cool stories that came out in the last day or two off of two of my favorite DC food blogs: Metrocurean and Food Rockz.

Metrocurean had a great post about, a new website that shows people how to do stuff via a YouTube like video. In the Food & Drink section there are a lot of DC based chefs including Petra Cox from Mom's Apple Pies in NoVA, and Travis Timberlake of DC Coast.

Food Rockz, in his RW review of Corduroy, posted a recent posting by Corduroy's Chef/Owner Tom Power:

"After seven and a half long years Corduroy is leaving the Sheraton Four Points Hotel. Our last day at 1201 K Street will be January 31 and we will reopen at 1122 9th Street NW Washington DC in early March. The restaurant week promotion will be extended through January 26th and then there will be a big fire sale. January 27-31 will be liquid liquidation time. The menu will shrink to almost nothing over these days while the deals on wine, beer and spirits will be fantastic. Bring your friends and help drink me out of the Four Points."

A very exciting prospect indeed. I for one will be there to help Chef Power bring his tenure at the 1201 K St. location to a successful end; anyone want to join me?
