We’re calling it a week a touch early today, while most of you have already started your weekend, so we can better prep for next week.

While this month has been pretty slow overall, the week that will usher in the start of September promises to be a bit busier, with the start of school, some local business-related scoops, and other stories that are already in planning.

Not that this week was a snoozefest. Quite the opposite, in fact, considering that all of our top 10 most-read stories had more than 2,500 views.

Here are the top stories of the past week:

  1. New concept plan for Langston Blvd shows sweeping vision of greener corridor with taller buildings
  2. EXCLUSIVE: Scott Parker, Cowboy Cafe owners and manager partnering on Forest Inn replacement
  3. Police: Nude man attacked officer, ran into Ballston apartment
  4. NEW: Arlington ranks No. 3 on “top family-friendly cities” list
  5. Another commercial vehicle tow leads to another questionable call to police
  6. Man arrested after attack in front of library
  7. Arlington’s planetarium is looking to finally reopen this fall with a new director and modern projector
  8. NEW: “Old School” Italian restaurant and wine bar coming to Ballston area
  9. Metro says “plan now” for the eight-month-long Yellow Line shutdown that starts next month
  10. Starting as a Rosslyn food cart, District Taco is taking over the world “one taco at a time”

Feel free to discuss these stories or anything else of local interest in the comments. Have a great last weekend of August, Arlington!
