Morning, foodie fans! Did you watch Top Chef last night? We sure did, and we have lots to say about it—stay tuned for our recap later today. But first, make sure to ask Spike Mendelsohn of last season whatever you like about last night's episode—or anything else. He'll be chatting live at 11 AM.

Into transport? Then you'll want to check out this overview of the Anacostia streetcar plans. 

Shop quick—14th Street boutique Muleh (one of our faves) is having a great sale.

Got inauguration on the mind? We all do. WTOP reports that there will be fewer bleachers and more curb spots for the inaugural parade this year.

First lady fashion analysis is nothing new, and now Michelle Obama is being subjected to scrutiny that the earrings she wore on election night turned out to cost $11,000

Check back later today for…Spike's live Top Chef chat; a guide to local dog parks; the Hot Ticket, a roundup of which shows are going on sale this week; a Washingtonian Favorites interview.
