ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Some in the region may have spent today in mourning, after the Washington Nationals’ World Series dream died last night.

Closer to home, a man got stuck in the bathroom at a Starbucks in Ballston, while the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City will add a food delivery service starting Monday.

One person was in critical condition after a house fire in Ashton Heights in the early hours of Wednesday morning, while some Leeway-Overlee residents are up in arms over road construction delays.
