    • Well, it looks like D.C.'s fervor for televised foodie competitions won't be fading anytime soon. Yesterday, the Food Network announced that Good Stuff Eatery owner and "Top Chef" star Spike Mendelsohn will compete in the next season of "The Next Iron Chef" premiering Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. See more at The Feast.

    • Through April 25, Mexican eatery Rosa Mexicano is offering a special Passover-themed menu. Mexico is home to 50,000 Jews, many of whom descended from Jews who were expelled from the Iberian peninsula during the Spanish Inquistion. However, expect riffs on traditional Eastern European dishes from Rosa Mexicano ,like an appetizer of shaved jicama served with pickled herring (a play on ceviche), flautas de res (rolled corned beef tacos), and -- wait for it -- veal tongue tacos. See a video on this astounding food item at The Feast.

    • Eatonville is holding an Earth Day Happy Hour on Friday, April 22 with a grown-up lemonade stand from 6 to 8 P.M. The eatery is partnering with Veev Açaí Spirit and offering several adult beverages. One dollar from every VeeV bottle sold will be donated to save the rainforest. See more Earth Day specials here.

    • Get $50-worth of French food and drink for $25 at Le Vieux Logis (7925 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda), which has been serving the neighborhood for the last 30 years. Find more deals at The Feast.
