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:

  • 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.

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
