MANASSAS CAN'T STOP KK'S TEMPTATIONS
Inside NoVA: "The Manassas City Council recently learned for certain that it can’t keep KK’s Temptations from opening on Battle Street.

BAY BRIDGE NAMED ONE OF WORLD'S SCARIEST
Washington Post: "If you’re afraid of driving over Maryland’s Bay Bridge, you’re apparently not alone.
A travel magazine has named the 4.3-mile span across the Chesapeake Bay as one of the scariest in the world.
Travel and Leisure magazine says the bridge made the list because of frequent storms that limit visibility."
BRANDING THE 14TH STREET ARTS DISTRICT
Borderstan: "Last month Borderstan reported on the $200,000 grant awarded by the DC Neighborhood Investment Fund for branding and marketing of the DC Arts District centered around the 14th and U Streets corridors. In a series of three public meetings project leaders Andrea Doughty and Carol Felix presented the project goals and the time line for introducing brand concepts to the public.
Panelists presented their visions for the Arts District and the audience was encouraged to provide feedback after the presentations. We thought it would be time to bring you up to date on the status of the effort."
EVEN TRANSFORMERS NEED LOVE
DCist: "Here's an ad from Craigslist's m4w missed connections that seems totally appropriate, considering that the gentleman in question is only in town for a few days. Who says robots don't need to get it on?
You: About 7 feet tall, shiny aluminum with a waffle pattern. Being pulled around by some chump of a yellow van. I think it had a tattoo that said “District Taco”."
