Ethiopian Eatery Delayed Amid Litigation — “It’s been nearly five years since Abebe, who owns the Michelin-honored Chercher Ethiopian Restaurant & Cafe in D.C., sealed a deal to open a new restaurant at Courthouse Place, a nine-story building at 2000 N. 14th St., not far from Arlington’s police and court complex… Since then, Abebe has signed a lease for, and opened, a second restaurant in Bethesda — but the Arlington outpost remains in limbo due to a protracted landlord-tenant dispute he said could ultimately force him to walk away from the deal.” [Washington Business Journal]

W-L Boys, Yorktown Girls Top District — “With four victories against Liberty District opponents last week, including two against the Wakefield Warriors in all-Arlington boys basketball showdowns, the Washington-Liberty Generals (12-8) took over sole possession of first place with a 9-1 league mark and two high-school games to play… The Yorktown High School girls basketball team (15-3) had a busy and winning time last week with a 4-0 record against Liberty District opponents to take over sole possession of first place with a 9-0 record.” [Sun Gazette]

W-L Track Wins District Championship — From Washington-Liberty High School track and field: “Congratulations to our boys team — Liberty District Champions!” [Twitter]

Yorktown Swim Teams Win Championships — “The two championships came in widely different, and expected, point margins for the Yorktown Patriots teams in the 6D North Region girls and boys swimming and diving meets. The girls dominated in earning their first region crown since 1984, winning five events and amassing 394 points, well ahead of second-place and the five-time defending champion Madison Warhawks with 308… The Yorktown boys won a much closer meet.” [Sun Gazette]

Video Tour of ACFD Tower 104 — From the Arlington County Fire Department: “Join the crew of Tower 104, B Shift as they give you a tour of the busiest special service in Arlington for 2021.” [Twitter, YouTube]

Paris is Getting a Gondola — “By 2025, commuters near the Paris suburb of Creteil should have a new way to get to work: the French capital’s first-ever public transit gondola. The new aerial tramway, which cleared its pre-construction feasibility studies this week, will be called Cable A, and will link several outlying but populous neighborhoods in Paris’ southeastern suburbs to the terminus of Metro line 8.” [Bloomberg]

It’s Tuesday — Today will be partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 43. Low of 29 tonight. Sunrise at 7:06 a.m. and sunset at 5:38 p.m. Tomorrow will be sunny, with a high near 53. [Weather.gov]
