Hmmmmm. My choice is running third . . . . .bummer.

Here's my reasoning for choosing DC Digest.

Option 2 makes me think of our topics here for what is on the menu each day.

Option 3 I like, but I thought a true taste of DC would be coming to the forums and checking them out.

I'm assuming this will be sent to members interested in receiving it, so getting a "taste" of DC isn't needed as we are part of DC. DC Digest says to me the e-mail would be an abridged version of the goings on of DC. If one would want more information, they'd come here.

Just my two cents.

i'm with the 'dog. i like dc digest. concise, alliterative, rolls off the tongue.

btw, i did notice one weird thing with last months "digest".

it referenced us going into spring, or warmer weather. that's only true for the northern hemisphere. it sorta thumbs it's nose at our aussies and other members below the earth's beltline.

just another 2 centavos.

I voted for DC Digest, but I would've gone with something like "The hot plate", or some other cooking type term...

Well since "Sushi's Digest" is not a choice I decided to pick DC Digest.
Its to the Point.

I just don't like using "DC".

"What's Cooking" is also slang for What's Happening which I think is apropos and kinda clever.

DC Digest is a little bit Reader's Digest-y
and
A Taste of DC doesn't really do anything for me.

I like both DC ones, but What's Cooking is the name of the Whole Foods ad every two weeks with recipes and stuff, so that's what it makes me think of.

Thumbs up What's Cooking?

I like What's Cooking, but both of the DC ones are good as well. So I am not sure which one I like the best, but I choose What's Cooking. I think that the DC ones don't sound as "homey" I guess I could say. But any of them would work, just as long as I get to read it.

I voted for "A Taste of DC." I was originally going to vote for "What's Cooking?" but I am subscribed to a few cooking e-zines and 3 of them are already called that... LOL.

DC Digest

Let us not forget the pun on the word "digest" whether it was purposeful or not...
