Link roundup

DC Urban Turf follows up on our report about the development plans for 300 L St NE.

DC Style is Real dropped by the inaugural NoMa Farmers' Market, which is Wednesdays 3 - 7 p.m., at 1200 First Street, NE (1st & M Sts) and conveniently right before the NoMa summer screen movie nights.  

Metrocurean checked out Watershed (1200 1st St NE) and liked it, joining us in recommending the shrimp n grits, hush puppies and crabcakes, and also touting the soft shell crabs.

Parenting Magazine says DC is the best city for families.

The Washington Post says "Impala" from the folks behind the famed pop up taco stand Tacos Impala is coming to H Street next year.  We've heard this as well and are pleased that there is a location lined up for the return of these terrific tacos, which came to us from well-regarded H Street residents.

The Washington Post touts the back patio at Smith Commons and says they're growing their beer program into "one of the city's best."  We're lucky to have a number of great patios along H Street and Smith Commons is definitely one of our favorite.

Prince of Petworth's House of the Day is a nice one from the corner of 5th & G, which has an incredibly well-tended to yard.  It's one of our favorites in the neighborhood and is located at a great corner where each house has a really nice yard and where rose bushes have been planted in the corner tree boxes.  Bravo to the homeowner on the much deserved kudos.

DC Suburbia has this nice post offering a neighborhood resident's perspective on the Argonaut, and its meaning to the community before and after the fire.

Frozen Tropics has this note that there will be a series of mediation classes coming up on Wednesdays and Sundays at SOVA and the Atlas Performing Arts Center.

Councilmember Tommy Wells introduced three new bills to address DC officials use of vehicles, transition funding for new administrations, and campaign fundraising.
