Mail bag

Some fun things in the DC Gastronome inbox:

Earth Day
On April 22, my favorite outdoor cocktail spot, the Garden at Poste, is reopening for the season with a garden party in honor of Earth Day and Freshfarm Markets . The $5 cover will be donated to Freshfarms, and guests will enjoy tastings from local wineries, cheese tastings from Cowgirl, and samples of new punch-style cocktails from Rico and Chef Robert Welland's new small plates menu.

Let them eat cupcake!

Mervis Diamond Importers has upped the ante in the DC cupcake craze. The trunk show they will be hosting May 1 and 2 at their Rockville and Tysons locations will feature designers Martin Flyer and Coast, as well as some confections that will make gold dust look rather unimpressive.
