The National Christmas Tree is on the Ellipse on the south side of The White House. There are smaller trees ringing it; one for each state plus DC and the U.S. territories and commonwealths. (Luis Gomez Photos)

Help Alejandra Get a Tweep Nomination for Favorite Foodie

Our very own food writer, Alejandra Owens, could be up for Favorite Foodie in The Washington Post’s DC’s Top Tweeps of 2010! Go nominate her if you’ve enjoyed all those recipe round ups, farmers market updates and the real skinny on your favorite restaurants (not to mention her holiday wine-giving advice). Alejandra also writes about food at her own site, One Bite At A Time. Her Twitter handle is @frijolita and you can nominate her through noon on December 24, when nominations close. If she makes the cut voting begins after that!

About That Large DDOT Screen at 14th and U NW

The DC Department of Transportation has rolled out its first multi-modal digital display, which provides travelers with real-time information about their transportation choices on one screen. The screen is at the Reeves Municipal Center at 14th and U Streets NW (on the 14th side). DDOT is planning to also install more NextBus displays at bus shelters across the city. However, with the MMDD, “Multiple transportation options are layered on this one dynamic display – not just buses, but Metrorail, bikesharing and carsharing as well.” All are displayed on an area map. Check out the YouTube overview of MMDD.
