All the Arlington News You Care About - June 1 - June 11
Washington City Paper
This is as much a beast on the Washington Post's obsessive coverage of Clarendon as anything else, but all the same the story's a decent snapshot of Clarendon.
I can't say an article about a local Treasurer's race would normally interest me, but this one just sounds like good old fashioned hard nosed local politics, and I found that interesting.
And the environmental movement marches on!
The Post Going out Gurus (always a worthwhile read), recommend Eat Bar for a night out in Arlington.
Quick review of the recent Community Bike Ride (as highlighted in the What's Up Arlington! e-newsletter)
Article about an Arlingtonian who recently ran the Frederick marathon while pushing a stroller! I'm impressed. This guy has also qualified for the Olympic Trails - interesting article.
What do you think? Do you like the classical format better than the all news one?
Good review of Cafe Pizzaiolo.
Sowing a Different Tomorrow
Article about Arlington's trees, including it's free tree give away.
Washingtonian's Annual 100 Best Bargain Restaurants
I can't find an online link for this (anyone out there, got one?), but someone sent this info along to me:
Arlington restaurants claimed 13 listings in Washingtonian’s annual 100 Best Bargain Restaurants.
A “cheap eat” is defined by the Washingtonian as a meal for two under $55, including tax and tip…and “at some places, staying within the Cheap Eats budget means abandoning the notation that three courses make a meal.” (Personally, I'm not sure I would claim under $55 as necessarily cheap!)
