Friday Links and Videos

Enjoy some really good videos from Celebrate Fairfax and interesting links to help you get through your Friday.

Washington DC radio station Hot 99.5 has introduced the Hotty Awards to determine the hottest food, people, places, and things going on in DC. In exchange for this link, I look forward to the station giving me Wicked tickets. Concert tickets? Movie tickets? A T-shirt? [Hot 99.5]

We interrupt the links to watch Third Eye Blind performing Semi-Charmed Life at this year's Celebrate Fairfax.
