At long last, Mother Nature is ready to let up a bit and offer Arlington its first pleasant weekend of the fall.
After a dreary week of rain, the forecast is looking quite promising indeed over the next few days — and that should be quite good news for bars and restaurants hurting from the past few weeks of wet weather.
Fortuitously, there are also plenty of outdoor events planned for this weekend around the county, from the Crystal City Oktoberfest to South Arlington’s ValleyFest. Check out our events calendar for a full look at what’s going on around Arlington.
