ARLnow Weekend Discussion

One news story this week has divided Arlington, and promises to dominate conversation for days to come.

Everybody has an opinion, but there is seemingly no resolution in sight to a question vexing residents and non-residents alike:

How did a stick of deodorant get on top of a bus stop in Clarendon?

As of Friday, the stick was still there, on top of the bus shelter around 3100 Clarendon Blvd. The plot thickens.

Elsewhere, some of our other popular stories included news of a closure of a 7-Eleven in Cherrydale, a replacement for the former Applebee’s in Ballston, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington opening the first kitten nursey in the region and a new startup offering free rides along the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor.

Feel free to discuss those and anything else of interest from this week in the comments. Have a great weekend!
