(Updated at 10:10 a.m.) There was no shortage of news this week, from lawsuits to fires to a violent incident at a local drive-thru.

Hopefully, this weekend is much quieter as Arlington stays safe inside following the snowfall Friday.

By the way, today is ARLnow’s 12th anniversary: on this date in 2010 ARLnow started publishing. Time flies!

Now, here are the most-read articles of the past week:

  1. Two arrested after incorrect order leads to violence at local McDonald’s
  2. Predatory towing targeted under new bill inspired by Advanced Towing case
  3. These are the best-designed edifices in Arlington, according to the county
  4. Fire breaks out above restaurant at Pentagon Centre shopping center
  5. Arlington School Board sues to challenge Youngkin’s mask order
  6. Grace Community Church to fill huge space in Ballston Quarter mall
  7. Man found guilty in son’s 2020 murder in Green Valley
  8. Covid cases still falling in Arlington, down 60% from peak
  9. As apartments near County HQ go up, what’s next for Courthouse?
