Map: The Best Places to Sled in the D.C. Area: DCist

boy on sled

The first flurries have already started falling, and they aren't likely to let up until Saturday night. Once the ferocious winds stop and it is safe to bundle up and trundle outside—probably not until Sunday—there won't be much open. But that should make for perfect sledding conditions

Hence we gift you this map of the best places to sled, compiled from various sources and our staff's own experience. Enjoy, and let us know if we missed any.

Cherry Blossom, Wines

On Saturday i went with Mark to see the fireworks show for the Cherry Blossom Festival. It was near the Waterfront on the Potomac River.

Last night i performed a taste test with a merlot and a shiraz. I now realize that the shiraz has a zing that the merlot lacks. Aside from that, they both taste great.

The LCLI website is coming along very nicely.
