Morning Notes

A Drier Night At the Fair — The Arlington County Fair shut down early last night thanks to the rain. With any luck the rain will hold tonight so fair-goers can enjoy the rides and the concessions without an umbrella. If all else fails, however, the indoor exhibits will be open tonight. See the fair hours.

Restaurant Week in Clarendon — Clarendon Nights has a list of Clarendon and Courthouse restaurants participating in DC Restaurant Week.

Five Guys Wins More Praise — Five Guys Burgers and Fries has been getting some glowing news coverage lately. The chain, which started in Arlington, topped Zagat’s Best Burger category in survey results released Monday.
