WASHINGTON -- When it comes to cupcakes in the nation's capital, navigating one's way through the seemingly endless parade of options is a tall order.
Never fear: District of Columbia Councilmember Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) -- who has been facing a lot of heat from The Washington Post editorial page recently -- is here to help.
Brightest Young Things enlisted the bow-tied politician for a city-wide taste test of several well-loved cupcake haunts in honor of Valentine's Day.
In addition to some serious cupcake eye candy, the piece also details each place's V-Day specials and several cupcake giveaways.
This isn't the first time Graham's culinary preferences have been profiled. Last May, Washington City Paper reported that Georgia Avenue restaurant Ma-Ma's Southern Cuisine had named a plate "The Jim Graham," a tribute to the politician's favorite dish, fresh salmon. Ma-Ma's version is sauteed and served with onions, peppers and a choice of sides.
