Where we talk about stuff (happening in and around D.C.) we didn’t write about but is still something you may care to get all riled about and comment on. So, without further ado – today, in other D.C. media sources:

  • When you pickle cabbage, you get kim chi. When you pickle cucumbers, you get, well pickles. Both are super yummy (at least in my opinion)! So why not try pickling other things? Oh wait — some local restaurants already have! (via Express Night Out)

  • Foodies rejoice! Mark your calendars because Boqueria, a tapas restaurant from New York, has announced that their official opening date will be MARCH 15. (via Eater DC)
  • Have a sweet tooth that needs satisfying? Fortunately for you, H Street Bakes will be happening this Sunday and Prince of Petworth has all the details.
  • HOME MOVIE ENTHUSIASTS PAY ATTENTION: This morning the Phillips launched a Snapshot-inspired Home Movie Contest on our Experiment Station blog. We’ve put out an open call for short videos (3 min. max), focusing on life at home with family and friends, submitted via hosted URL through a simple web form before midnight on March 25. 10 finalists will be screened at the Phillips on April 12 (and finalists get to take home a copy of the Snapshot exhibition catalogue). That night, the crowd will vote for a favorite, and the winning video will be shown during DC Shorts this September. Winner also receives a year-long Phillips membership and $300 gift card at B&H Photo.
  • Local fashionistas, Spicy Candy DC and The President Wears Prada, have joined up with trendy retailer, South Moon Under, to create a print and video lookbook for spring! (via Refinery 29 DC)

  • Has a WMATA employee ever given you grief for taking pictures on the metro? Well apparently, you’re ALLOWED to take pictures there (with a few exceptions). And not only that, but if you share your story and pictures with Borderstan, you may even win a lovely prize. (via Borderstan)
  • Excited for the Cherry blossoms to bloom? Good news! You won’t have to wait as long since according to the Washington Post, they should peak before the end of March.

This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ About Jon Dore: Named one of “10 comics to watch” by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted the Just for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival’s Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Dore is the host of HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its fourth season. He is the star of his own award-winning ‘mockumentary’ series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life’s challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network. Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central’s specials including Live At Gotham, CC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) and Scare Tactics (Syfy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment. A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS). Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the “rising stars of the future” and Toronto weekly NOW Magazine named him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show. ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: http://www.heineken.com/ More Bentzen Ball shows available at: http://www.bentzenball.com Stay informed: http://www.twitter.com/byt
