Happy Tuesday!  Grab a second cup of coffee and ignore those work emails for another 10 minutes – it’s time to check out some links you may have missed from around the blogosphere about the Hill during the last week.

  • JD Land reported that the city is spending $85M to purchase 225 Virginia Avenue, the old Washington Star printing plant.  The building is slated to be the headquarters for the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency, the Office of the Chief Technology Officer and the Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
  • According to Frozen Tropics, a human hand was found on Bladensburg Road.  I would generally ignore a post like this since there are no further details, but then I started reading the comments and decided it was too funny to not pass on.
  • We Love DC is concerned that Spike is turning his menu at Good Stuff into a giant love letter to the Obamas.
  • One of the best things about the fall on the Hill is Halloween.  We already arguably do it better than any other neighborhood in the city, and it just keeps getting better.  Frozen Tropics is sharing the first details about the first Dia de los Muertos on the Hill.  We’ll have much much more for you soon.
  • City Desk’s Neighborhood Watch reports on a proposal by the Trinidad ANC to deny licenses to sell alcohol to restaurants for 5 years unless they are part of an “established chain” with a proven track record like a “T.G.I. Friday’s or Ruby Tuesday.”
  • Famous DC gave rave reviews to H Street Country Club’s new drink menu, created by Master Mixoligist Gina Chersevani.
