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:

  • Easter is upon us and the District is FULL of incredible brunches/chocolates/seasonal cocktails. Have you seen our guide yet? Your weekend is lookin’ mighty tasty…
  • Conversely, here is a list of restaurants perfect for dining out on Passover! (via Washingtonian)
  • CHICKFACTOR is HERE today and tomorrow at Artisphere. In preparation, here is a FANTASTICALLY fun interview with Belle and Sebastian’s Stevie Jackson, who’s headlining the festival tonight. Read/hear his picks on songs for virtually every occasion.
  • Relatedly, read this excellent feature on chickfactor’s influence on the digital age. (via Washington City Paper)
  • The time for delicious Spring/Summer produce is right around the corner; here’s a four-step guide to shopping at farmers markets most effectively. (via Borderstan)

  • D.C. has finally chosen the production company that will make H Street/Benning Road’s street cars, and, more importantly, the latest word on a deadline? The H Street streetcar line will be “beginning in 2013″… whatever that means. (via TBD)
  • And in more Easter spirit, here’s a great slideshow of the White House Easter Egg Roll throughout the (134!!!) years. (via HuffPost DC)
