WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy:
- This story about D.C. being one of the best places to visit in the US leads with a photo of The Exorcist stairs and I 100% approve.
- 500,000 people are expected to march tomorrow and D.C. has already begun prepping.
- Speaking of the march, The Anthem’s benefit concert with Lizzo / Fall Out Boy is tonight. It’s insane to me that kids still listen to Fall Out Boy.
- Nationals Park has removed all three of its Mike Isabella restaurants and no one knows what’s replacing them. In my expert opinion, they should add three Shake Shacks.
- Important news for the cherry blossom fanatics out there
The “indicator tree” hit full bloom today! It usually peaks 7-10 days in advance of the rest of the Yoshino trees, but models have been less reliable this year due to a cold March. Checking latest data, forecasts & other indicators ; update on peak bloom tomorrow, if necessary. pic.twitter.com/SqhALs8Y45

- The National Zoo has a new elephant and he’s adorable.
- A Rake’s Progress is twee as fuck.
- Want to try our Jonny Spero’s Reverie before it opens? Hit up these preview dinners at The Columbia Room.
- Glenstone, that weird private museum in Maryland, has announced its newest exhibition and it looks sick.
- City Paper has a fun list of bars that allow you to bring other food in. Here’s a fun life hack, you can bring any kind of food anywhere if you have a big enough bag and a little bit of confidence.
- Metro is thinking about modernizing its fare gates.
- It’s National Puppy Day so let’s look at some cute photos of dogs playing in the snow. Have a good weekend, kids.
