Looking Back at the Top Stories of 2010 (Part 1)

ARLnow.com in 2010ARLnow.com launched on Jan. 29, 2010, following a coffee-fueled all-nighter and lots of DIY WordPress tinkering.

What have followed are five years of continuous local news coverage, from tiny articles about potholes that no other news outlet would report on to big scoops that quickly have become international news.

As part of our five year anniversary, we’re looking back (in no particular order) at some of the defining Arlington stories of 2010. Some are weighty and easily remembered. Others, not so much.

Do you remember…

If you remembered all of those, congrats! You’re officially an ARLnow.com early adopter.

Come reminisce with us at our Fifth Anniversary Bash on January 27, from 6-8 p.m. at Crystal Tech Fund in Crystal City. Through 11:30 tonight tickets are discounted to an “early adopter” rate of $12.90. After that, the price goes up to $20.10.

The event is hosted by the Crystal City Business Improvement District and the price of admission includes adult beverages and delicious finger food.
