TGIF, Washingtonians! What are you up to this weekend? If you're a bride or a groom to-be, why not check out our Bridal Showcase on Sunday? Just looking for fun? How about our weekend picks? Perhaps you want to sit by your computer all weekend and review restaurants with our new reader restaurant review function? Clearly the best choice, we say.

We don't know why we feel so terribly duped by this news, but we do. Yo-Yo Ma, what's up?  Turns out the beautiful classical music played by that quartet at inauguration was actually a taped recording. The musicians said the cold weather would put their instruments out of tune. 

The Post reports that Gillian Clark, formerly of Colorado Kitchen, will open her new restaurant, General Store, this Saturday—sort of. The restaurant will be operating as a carry-out establishment for the time being until some permit issues are resolved. 

Obama is trying to bring web 2.0 to government, but might find it difficult, considering that apparently the White House is in the "technological dark ages.

DC's already got a cell phone ban (though, honestly, we have to say we wouldn't know it by the amount of drivers we still see every day gabbing away in their cars)—and could one be on the way in Virginia?
