Wilson Boulevard Paving — Paving on Wilson Boulevard between Courthouse and Clarendon tied up traffic for the better part of yesterday afternoon. At one point, the lone open lane was blocked thanks to a construction foreman arguing a parking ticket with a parking enforcement officer.

TangySweet’s Clarendon Salad Shop Gets Name — “Rabbit” is the new name of the salad component of the future TangySweet store in Clarendon. As we first reported in May, store owner Aaron Gordon wants Rabbit to “improve on the salad offerings of competitors like SweetGreen, Mixt Greens and Chop’t.” Rabbit’s opening date depends on the construction of the Clarendon Center project, in which it will be housed. Look for a March or an April opening, says the Washington City Paper.

Beer Garden Suggested for Rosslyn Gateway Park — The addition of an eatery or a beer garden is among the ideas proposed for sprucing up Rosslyn’s Gateway Park. More from TBD.

Redskins Visit Claremont Elementary — Redskins Clinton Portis and Brian Orakpo visited Claremont Elementary School yesterday as part of the NFL’s Play 60 initiative. “It’s nice to give back on my day off,” said Orakpo. More from NBC Washington and the Washington Post.

    It’s nice to see Zimmerman complaining about JBG’s involvement in the Gateway Park planning study, but I guess the next question would be who solicited their help and how else could the study have been funded?

    Anything is an improvement on Chop’t. That place is terrible. The only defense I hear is “they give you a lot of salad! They mash it in there!” Yes, they mash nearly $0.85 worth of lettuce in there with a tablespoon of chicken for only $10.

    It ain’t just Wilson Boulevard that’s a mess. Since at least yesterday, Washington Boulevard is also chopped for paving in the Washington-Lee area, creating dust clouds, alignment hazards and unpredictable lanes.
