20 More Bike Stations

Even if you missed out on the Tweed Ride this weekend, no need to despair. Wash Cycle has you covered for next year, as they outline Capital Bikesharing’s plans for expansion in 2011. Look for 20 new stations to be added next year, although with Dupont Circle and the 14th and U St. stations as the busiest stations, it appears many readers are already using the service.

Electrical Car Charging Station, 14th and U

If you have yet to give up your car just yet but still want to be more ‘green,’ you may have an additional option in the district. Washington Examiner has the story of the grand opening of the first electrical car charging station, opened Tuesday at the Reeves Center. Users can pay per use or start a subscription, with the District to set the fees.

Holiday Wine Preview at Whole Foods

What’s a wine tasting without free wine poured for you? A wine tweetup, that’s what! Whole Foods Market is hosting a tweetup to preview their six Holiday Wines. Pick up your bottles, follow them @WFMWineGuys or #WFMwine to hear from the experts, trade thoughts and get additional recommendations for Thanksgiving.

The Story of Dupont’s “Dr. Shine”

WUSA 9 has a great story on one of my favorite neighborhood characters, “Dr. Shine.” I’ve had the great fortune of hearing many of his rhymes during several years of patronage of some of the bars along 18th and M St. He’s a D.C. native and lives in Shaw, so support a local establishment and skip your expensive, less entertaining shine shop.

Pennies in the Fountain

And finally, what happens to the pennies you may have tossed into the Dupont fountain? It’s possible they ended up at a non-profit foundation that needs help cleaning them. Washington City Paper has the story of how the pennies arrived and what you can do to help turn them into funds.
