It was, to be honest, a relatively light news week in Arlington.
Most of the local news revolved around restaurants, at a time when much of the population is still not even considering dining out at a restaurant. The restaurant stories did well, readership-wise, but not as well as we would expect during normal times.
The lived experience of this week probably doesn’t feel like it was light on news, given what’s happening nationally. Given the presidential debate, reports about the president’s past tax returns, the president’s COVID-19 diagnosis, and — for those sport-inclined — a constant barrage of sports news and post-season action, the last few days have been exhausting for many.
Here are the ARLnow stories that had the highest readership this week:
- Summers Restaurant Closing Permanently After 38 Years
- Reduced School Bus Capacity Prompts APS to Expand Elementary ‘Walk Zones’
- Democratic Precinct Captain Booted for Supporting Independent School Board Candidate
- Arlington World of Beer Location to Open Next Week
- New BBQ Restaurant Launches Fried Chicken Virtual Restaurant
- Connecticut Pizza Restaurant Sets Mid-October Opening Date for New Clarendon Outpost
- Man Arrested After Accidentally Firing Bullet into Apartment Below
- AWLA Still Seeking More Information on Abandoned Dog
- Making Room: Will Pentagon City Make Room for People or Cars?
- Punch Bowl Social in Ballston Sets Reopening Date
Feel free to discuss those articles or anything else of local interest in the comments. Have a nice weekend!
