ARLnow Weekend Discussion

It’s been a busy week, especially for local wildlife. On Tuesday, animal control officers rescued a raccoon that got stuck in a drain at Wakefield High School. Then, earlier today, a curious creature dubbed the “trash raccoon” hitched a ride on a garbage truck from Rosslyn to Falls Church.

In other news, are IOTA Club’s days numbered? The new owner of Market Common Clarendon is proposing major changes to the development, including the possible demolition of the building that holds the well-loved cafe, outdoor bar and live music venue. IOTA co-owner Jane Negrey Inge told us, however, that she didn’t expect the renovations to happen “any time… soon.”

And whatever happened to the couch that firefighters pulled from a tree on Monday? Hopefully, someone bolts it down before we have another windy day.

Also, don’t forget that Arlington County government offices, courts, libraries and other facilities will be closed Monday. Parking meters will not be enforced on Monday for George Washington Day.

ARLnow.com will return with full local news coverage on Tuesday due to the holiday. In the meantime, feel free to discuss these stories or any other topic of local interest in the comments.

Have a good — and hopefully long — weekend!
