ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Another Friday, another week, another robocall, and you’re still hanging in there. Good for you.

Here’s a few tips from this reporter on how to stay on top of what’s coming down the pipeline for Arlington residents.

First off, expect some road closures in Clarendon for the 7th annual arts festival taking place 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Secondly, the story yours truly penned about the end of days for Mister Days remains one of the most read one our site. So we thought you should know that bar owner Robert Lee is hosting a second “last call” party for the bar tomorrow (Saturday.)

This means you can say goodbye to Mister Days tonight or tomorrow, but whatever you do, don’t sleep over.

And in other news, did you know there’s an election going on?

Well if not, never fear: ARLnow has all the speed read info you need. Start with this reporter’s overview of all the candidates, and then check out this week’s “legislative lookbacks” on our state senators and delegates if you want to start brushing up before the primaries.

Other things to brush up from this week’s coverage around the county include:

Lastly, how do you like our new look? ARLnow debuted its shiny new design last week and we’re eager to hear what you think. (Unfortunately it contains zero gondolas.)

It’s most likely someone has picked her up. If found, or if there is any information, please contact the Animal Welfare League of Arlington or her owner at 571-510-0508 or [email protected]. If spotted, please don’t approach or call to her, but take a picture and call her owner.
