A heat wave is just around the corner, just in time for the weekend (and Father’s Day).
The forecast is set to be gorgeous for the next two days, before things get especially steamy Sunday.
It’s the perfect weather to, say, stop by a beer garden and crawfish boil, or check out the new Rosslyn observation deck. There are plenty of other events on tap this weekend too if you’re looking for something to do with the dads in your life.
In the meantime, check out some of our most popular stories of the last week:
- Caps Stop in Clarendon, With Stanley Cup in Tow
- Washington-Lee High School to be Renamed
- Man Jumps in Front of Train at East Falls Church Metro
- Video: Crystal City Metro Station Gets Unexpected Visitor
- Overhaul of Tricky ‘Clarendon Circle’ Intersection Could Start This Fall
Speaking of the Caps stopping in Clarendon with the Stanley Cup last Friday, there was more Capitals excitement in Arlington today. Alexander Ovechkin and Caps owner Ted Leonsis brought the Cup to the Arlington County Police Department for a quick photo opportunity.
Congratulations to our #StanleyCup Champions, @Capitals! Thank you being a great community partner and for supporting our public safety officers. We were honored to celebrate with you today! pic.twitter.com/hWDmHh4TZw
