More on New Alamo Drafthouse — “Cojeaux has hired about 170 employees for the theater, located at 1660 Crystal Drive, which Coco likened to a 900-plus-seat restaurant. Much of the food is made from scratch in a central kitchen, including chicken that’s breaded on site and pizzas baked in a specially designed oven. The food is delivered to the seated patrons via a serving station inside each screening room. ‘This way you can fully recline, pull food to you, have your beer or your milkshake or whatever it may be, right where you need it, and then there’s the call button for when you want that refill on your popcorn or you want another beer,’ Edwards said.” [Washington Business Journal]

Beyer Challenger: No ‘Missing Middle’ — From GOP congressional candidate Karina Lipsman: “We, the citizens of Arlington, cannot have comprehensive alterations to our communities decided without citizen approval.

Feedback on New APS Calendar Sought — “APS is seeking feedback from students, staff, families, and community members related to the development of the 2023-24 School Year Calendar. The survey will be available to complete between October 25 – November 8.

Local Girl Organizes Ukraine Relief Effort — “With her Bat Mitzvah coming up in March of 2023, Moret had the opportunity to choose a project that would embody the Jewish values of community engagement and compassion. After a lot of personal thought and moving discussions in her classes at school, Moret decided she would dedicate her project to helping the people of Ukraine during this difficult time.” [Arlington Soccer]
