ARLnow Weekend Discussion

This weekend marks the start of another SoberRide campaign by local nonprofit Washington Regional Alcohol Program.

From tonight (Friday, December 15) until December 22, download Lyft and use the code “SOBERRIDEDC” in the app to get a free ride home.

It’s the same program as for St. Patrick’s Day, Fourth of July, Halloween and other holidays, and this one will last until the morning of January 1, with new codes made available for each Friday.

So if you’re out for early holiday celebrations this weekend, or any other kind of revelry, keep that code in mind.

These were our most read stories this week:

  1. Ballston Quarter Mall to Add 18-Restaurant Food Hall
  2. A Historic Change for the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse
  3. Front Page Restaurant in Ballston to Close at Year’s End
  4. Cantina Mexicana Closed in Crystal City
  5. Marble and Rye to Close at Year’s End on Columbia Pike

And these received the most comments:

  1. Bus-Only Lanes May Soon Be Possible on Columbia Pike
  2. Morning Notes (December 12)
  3. Free Resident Wi-Fi Coming to Arlington Mill Residences
  4. Ballston Quarter Mall to Add 18-Restaurant Food Hall
  5. Morning Notes (December 14)

Feel free to discuss anything of local interest in the comments below. Stay safe in the snow, and have a great weekend!
