Nosy Neighbors

A roundup of interesting miscellany from our fellow neighborhood bloggers.

Still trying to find some gifts, even after reading our gift guides for the kid at heart, the kitchen, and even pets? Borderstan has recommendations on where to shop for baby, and for the coffee lover.  Penn Quarter Living is also starting their own gifting series with a handful of options from that area, including the Holiday Market.

In Shaw gives you the lowdown on how to outsmart the crowds at the new Costco by getting out of the parking lot faster and easier.

Southwest … the Little Quadrant that Could has a review of Pullman Porter Blues and some great photos from the parade of lighted boats.

Bloomingdale’s Grassroots Gourmet was featured in the Washington Post Food section.  Hello vanilla whoopie pies with Nutella icing!

In other food news (can you tell who is hungry?), We Love DC profiles Brian Voltaggio’s latest venture, RANGE, in Friendship Heights.  (In related food porn, did you see the photo spread of his home kitchen in the Post?)  The 42 Bus has a preview of the menu at Absolute Noodle on 5th Street, NW, in Judiciary Square.
