Mike Kohn has today’s Stuff for you, but surely there’s something he might have missed. Shoot him an e-mail or stalk him on Twitter @mike_kohn. He likes hearing from you. We promise.

Blossoms in Bloom

Hopefully, you’re all aware of these pretty little things that are blooming in the heart of D.C. That’s right, the Cherry Blossoms are here and the festival has begun. Starting this past Saturday with the official kickoff, the festival runs for two weeks with many events scheduled between now and April 10 (with peak bloom days from now until this Friday, April 1). You can find the full details over at the The Washington Post.

I love lamb.

And no, I’m just saying that because it’s in the room. If you love lamb, then place an order for lamb from New Asbury Farm, the lamb distributor at the 14th & U Farmer’s Market. They’re running some Spring Holiday Specials that you might want to take advantage of. Interested in getting your fill of meat? Place your order today at [email protected] so they can get it over to the American Ice House restaurant at 917 V Street NW for pick up on April 16.

Not Real Enough

What will happen to The Real Housewives of D.C.? It remains a mystery, according to DCist. Despite rumors proclaiming a final decision, Bravo is holding firm that they’re still unsure what’s going to happen to season 2. It doesn’t seem likely that the reality show will continue in our fair city, but we’ll wait with bated breath until the producers give the green light or the axe.

City Council Candidate Forum (and some shameless self promotion)

In case you haven’t marked your calendars yet, the Dupont-Logan-Foggy Bottom City Council Candidate Forum is coming up tomorrow at the Church of the Holy City at 16th and Corcoran Streets NW. You’ll have a chance to hear from 7 of the 9 contenders vying for Kwame Brown’s At-Large City Council position. In case that’s not enough of a draw, you’ll also have the opportunity to listen to Borderstan’s own Tom Hay, who will be moderating the event.
