ARLnow Weekend Discussion

GOAT Sports Bar in ClarendonOur biggest story of the week was the news that the crew from Don Tito and A-Town would be opening a new sports bar in Clarendon.

Say what you want about them, but they know how to create popular places. Close to 10,000 people read our article about G.O.A.T. Sports Bar, making it the most-read restaurant article in recent memory.

Since the article was first published on Monday, we’ve learned a bit more about G.O.A.T, which is coming to the former Hard Times Space.

“The G.O.A.T. will be an almost 10,000 square foot premier sports bar and game filled (your favorite arcade games from the past, mixed with the best of today’s game technology) fun zone with the best food and drink you can find in a bar,” one of the partners posted on Facebook this week. Those games just may help it to stand out in the crowded Clarendon bar scene.

The next seven most-read articles of the week were all police-related, while No. 9 was our article on the towing ordinance changes. Towing stories always gin up strong feelings in Arlington, and this week’s article was no exception.

Feel free to discuss the G.O.A.T, this week’s slew of crime articles or — gasp — towing, or any other topic of local interest, in the comments. Have a nice weekend!
