Curbside Cupcakes: This mobile cupcake truck is an intersection of Washington's latest food trends: social-media marketing (follow the truck's whereabouts at, street food, and cupcakes. The concept was the brainchild of two friends who wanted cupcakes one day but didn't feel like schlepping to Georgetown to get them.

Georgetown Cupcake: This cupcakery is one of the grandaddies of the exploding cupcake trend in Washington. The sisters behind the operation give away one cupcake flavor for free every day (follow their Twitter to find out which one). Favorite flavors include peanut-butter fudge, key lime, and plain old chocolate.

This poll will stay open until 10 AM on Tuesday.

*To help keep this contest fair, we’ve elected to use an IP address-based poll. This means that if you are voting from an office or network setting, not everybody will be able to vote. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we hope you’ll encourage coworkers to vote from their home computers.
