Miscellaneous Friday Send-Off

Thanks to my spies in the field, I was just notified that Rick of Rick's Picks (which I've mentioned before here and here) will be at the P Street Whole Foods from 4-8 p.m. this evening. Stop by, meet the man behind the pickles, and don't forget to try the Mean Beans.

Also thanks to several people who have written in with early raves of Ann Cashion and John Fulchino's newly opened taqueria, located right behind Johnny's Half Shell. The fish taco sounds like it's already a hit. Read more here.

Finally, the farmer's line and flea market outside Eastern Market are reportedly on for this weekend. Stop by and show your support for the efforts to rebuild the market. And mark your calendar for Tuesday, May 8, when area restaurants will donate a portion of sales to the cause. Read more here.
