ARLnow Weekend Discussion

School is out and it’s officially time to kick off summer break.

It looks like a great weekend weather wise for graduation parties, trips to the pool and other end-of-school celebrations. Saturday and Sunday will be sunny with pleasant highs of 83 and 84, perfect weather for going to the Animal Adoption Fair or other weekend events.

One place that was particularly toasty this week was the Market Common Clarendon shopping center, which suffered a devastating electrical fire Tuesday. While the Whole Foods across the street reopened the next day after regaining power, many of Market Common’s stores remain closed, including the adjacent, stand-alone Starbucks (pictured above.)

Feel free to discuss the big fire or any other topic of local interest in the comments.
