ARLnow Weekend Discussion

It’s been quite a week for restaurant news around Arlington County.

Today marked the opening of a new Dunkin’ Donuts in Virginia Square, while Kung Fu Tea is another new arrival, this time in Clarendon.

And looking ahead, an Indian restaurant is set to arrive in Ballston, while the Chercher Ethiopian restaurant is aiming to open this winter in Courthouse.

In other news you might have missed this week, the county celebrated PARK(ing) Day today at six sites, and a Wakefield High School teacher is a finalist for Virginia Teacher of the Year.

The effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are being keenly felt here, both by a family with connections in both Texas and Florida, and by anyone looking to buy gas in Arlington.

These were our most read stories of the week:

  1. Man Sentenced to 32 Years in Prison for 2016 Homicide
  2. BREAKING: Fire Department Responding to Rosslyn Metro for Track Fire
  3. Virginia Hospital Center Plans Big Expansion After County Land Swap
