ARLnow Weekend Discussion

July turned to August this week, as life in Arlington slowed just a touch and there were signs that fall is beginning to approach.

Maybe you noticed a bit less traffic on the roads as summer vacations ramped up. Or the Oktoberfest beers on local store shelves.

We noticed a bit less news — one factor: fewer people around and no County Board meeting in August — but ultimately there was still plenty to report.

Here are the top 8 most-read articles in Arlington this week (excluding this one):

  1. ‘Good Company’ in Ballston Rakes in the Dough
  2. Roads Closed in Clarendon for Vice Presidential Visit
  3. Arlington County Fair to Include Beer Garden, Goat Yoga This Year
  4. Rebuilt Taco Bell Now Open on Lee Highway
  5. Committee: Amazon HQ2 Designs Are Colorful But Unambitious
  6. APS Names Interim Superintendent
  7. Maizal Opening Tomorrow at Ballston’s Quarter Market
  8. One More Page Books Holding Auction to Cover Rising Rent

Enjoy what should be a relatively pleasant weekend — there will only be three more before Labor Day weekend. Feel free to discuss the stories above or any other local topic of interest in the comments.
