Shirlington Oktoberfest Draws a Crowd — Lines that nearly stretched around the block didn’t deter thousands from enjoying a sunny afternoon of beer samples, German food and oompah music. See more photos here and here.

Savannah Wants Michael Brown Back — Now that Michael Brown has “resigned” as Arlington’s county manager, editorial writers are beckoning him back to his former job as city manager of Savannah, Ga. However, Savannah’s city council doesn’t seem too enthusiastic about his potential return.

Possible Measles Exposure at DCA — In an abundance of caution, Arlington’s health department is warning anybody who was in Reagan National Airport’s Terminal C from 8:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 23 that they may have come in contact with an individual who had the measles.

Arena Stage’s Crystal City Era Coming to a Close — Say goodbye to Arena Stage, which is leaving the Crystal City Underground for a newly-renovated, $135 million theater just across the river in southwest DC. But the Crystal City theater won’t be dark for long. Synetic Theater is moving in. More from Connection Newspapers.

    So much for the “sick wife” routine.

    Boy does she look hungover.

    Based on the Shirlington photo, I’ve decided that only burly men can get away with that look.

      The blue scarf around the middle-guy’s neck certainly isn’t helping.

    Good times at the Shirlington Oktoberfest. Short wait (at times no wait) for beer and plenty of food options this year. For next year, maybe a little more music or a second stage. Sound from the band didn’t carry beyond main square. Made for a quiet time on the bookends of the festival.

    True, Thirsty.

    It was funny when the Edelweiss band ordered parents to remove their kids from the dance floor.

      Well, as we learned from the Westover Village Beer Garden, children dancing to live music is a menace to the neigborhood.

  • Let’s Be Car Free

    At the festival, I was shocked at how many people own lederhosen.

  • Thanks for the link guys!
