Pop Quiz #1

February 11, 2011

Hope you are ready. Hope you studied. Because the first ever pop quiz on the FLB starts now.

At stake is a $45 gift code to CSN Stores.

To win it, you need to be the first person to email danielb [at] fussylittleblog [dot] com with all the correct answers. Please keep your answer sheet private – do not post your answers in the comments. In the off chance that nobody does this within 48 hours, the winner will be the person who got the most correct answers. In the case of a tie, the winner will be the person who submitted their answers first.

I will do my very best to stay on top of my email and let you all know as soon as we have a winner.

UPDATE: Pencils down. We have a winner. Congratulations to Stanford Steph.

Good luck.

2009: Pasquale’s
2010: Marino’s

10)  Recently on Twitter I helped a follower figure out what to make for Valentines Day (not reservations). I suggest a couple of things, but there was only one pairing that she thought sounded amazing. What was it?

    Re: Ethiopian food in DC. Dukem on U Street, Abol in Silver Spring, but a new shiny favorite is Ethiopic on Capitol Hill (NE of Union Station–a short walk, and sort of off the beaten path). I’ve heard good things about Meskerem, but Adams Morgan is rarely convenient to anything. Zed’s in Georgetown is a little more expensive, but hey, it’s Georgetown.
