Arlington, VA

Another Friday is upon us. Why not take some extra time this weekend to dust off your resume and submit it to Amazon?

The retail giant has started the hiring process for its HQ2 in Arlington. New employees will begin working at a temporary office in June.

Arlington foodies had a lot to talk about this week. Kona Grill restaurant closed in Rosslyn, Starbucks is planning a drive-thru location on Lee Highway, True Food Kitchen is preparing for its grand opening and Riverside Hot Pot is offering a new take on traditional Chinese fare in Clarendon. Also, like a phoenix, the Ballston IHOP is set to reopen this weekend after an April 9 fire.

Also this weekend, police will be closing several roadways in North Arlington on Saturday, May 4, from 7:30-9:30 a.m. for the 2019 Jamestown Elementary 5K race.

Here are some of the other stories you may have missed this week:
