  • Could 14th Street become D.C.’s unofficial Little Italy? A trend in restaurants under development suggests a possibility… (via Washington City Paper)

  • We knew a metro fare increase was imminent but now we know just how much the change will set us back; after today’s board approval, metro fares will jump a $1 surcharge on any one-way trip, increasing anywhere from the $1.95-to-$5 range to the $2.10-to-$5.75 range, depending on distance traveled. (via HuffPost DC)
  • Expect to see strawberries at all your favorite D.C. farmers markets in the coming months. To prep, here’s a roundup of some mouthwatering and intriguing recipes via Borderstan.(Bacon-wrapped strawberries, anyone?)
  • And a little reminder to all–the Space Shuttle Discovery will be flying over D.C. on Tuesday. The exact route is yet to be determined, though it should be flying over the National Mall, the National Harbor and Reagan National Airport. (via Price of Petworth)

  • Over at the BYT Not-So-Secret Lair office today, we’ve been particularly thrilled about Epic Yoga opening soon, if for no other reason than its name being, well, awesome. Washingtonian has some first look pictures of the gorgeous (but maybe not entirely epic space).
  • Does Metro cater to tourists over locals? A glimpse at this and the “hot mess” that is the summer Metro schedule via Borderstan.
  • And just in time for that spring/summer pedestrian tourist rush, the National Park Service just released drafts of new pedicab regulations for operation on the National Mall. Some highlights: no pedicabs are allowed on National Mall sidewalks, passengers must be seat-belted in, all bikes must have reflectors on their spokes and cannot be parked in metered parking, taxi or sightseeing spaces.
