Looks like everyone is getting in on the real estate action.  Cork wine bar on 14th St is hosting a gingerbread house decorating party on Saturday, December 18 from 12 to 2pm. Are there prizes for whose looks the most like a DC house? I’d like to build a Clarendon-style bungalow but a Cap Hill Federal Rowhouse would be probably get a better return on gumdrops.

$30 will get you a gingerbread house kit including “the gingerbread foundation and all decorating materials.” I’m a little rusty on my gingerbread materials but I’m guessing that includes baked gingerbread, gumdrops and whatever sticky stuff people use to make it all stay together. Oh, and complimentary hot chocolate, cider, and cookies will be passed around as guests build their Gingerbread McMansions.
