We hope you had a great April and have some plans to ring in a new month this weekend.

There was plenty to talk about over the last 30 days.

This week’s number one story, about an FBI operation, was also the top story for the whole month of April. Coming in second, we wrote a story about a woman who pepper sprayed a man for taking photos of children — he turned out to be their dad. The third story you guys were most interested in this month was on SOJA, a band that formed in Arlington, winning a Grammy award.

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

  1. There was an FBI operation on Columbia Pike this morning
  2. West Glebe Road bridge to completely close in two weeks
  3. Atilla’s is closing next month after almost five decades on Columbia Pike
  4. Two arrested after gunfire in D.C. leads to brief chase in Arlington
  5. Arlington is getting its own pride festival this summer
  6. Arlington ultramarathoner Michael Wardian is now running clear across the U.S.
  7. Police planning targeted traffic enforcement in Rosslyn tomorrow
  8. AWLA warns about potentially rabid fox
  9. New Chipotle opening today in Clarendon
  10. County Board unanimously approves Phase 2 of Amazon’s HQ2

Feel free to discuss these stories or anything else of local interest in the comments. Enjoy the weekend, Arlington!
