Trying to get into or out of town this weekend?

You might want to make alternate plans for going into D.C. or getting to the airport: Metro reports that there will not be Yellow Line service Saturday or Sunday, though the Blue Line will still be running.

But, think positively: the sun was shining this afternoon, it’ll warm up this weekend, and there are several events this weekend to get you outside. And there’s a colorful yarn bomb currently underway in Clarendon.

Before you do start your weekend, let’s take a look back at ARLnow’s biggest stories over the past week.

  1. Photos: SWAT Team Raids Home in Arlington Heights
  2. Breaking: Gerber Moving Headquarters to Rosslyn
  3. Two Arrested for ATM Skimming Scheme in Shirlington
  4. ACFD Battles Rooftop Fire at Ambar in Clarendon
  5. Photos: Trash Truck Smashes into Cars Near Rosslyn
