WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.
- Does anyone actually use UberEats? In efforts to try and keep up with Lyft and Uber, D.C. Taxicab Commission is now attempting to make taxi-delivery a thing. Laundry, alcohol, and groceries are on the way too. (via DCist)
- Yet another provision has been made on the D.C. Concealed-Carry Law. The judge thought that the previous provision about needing a “good reason” to apply for a concealed weapon permit was violating the second amendment. Maybe I will apply for a permit too, just because. (via WAMU)
- In not-at-all-shocking news, D.C. is America’s fittest city. (via Fox DC)
- In not-at-all-related to exercise news, Buttercream Bakeshop is now open in Shaw.
- Someone stole a Boston Terrier from a car and now its’ owners are offering $10,000 reward to get their beloved pup back. I don’t think even my parents would pay $10,000 to get me back. (via WJLA)
- Speaking of big rewards, if you’ve spotted a light green Jamis Aurora, men’s style bicycle around Brookland, you may have found a $1,000 rolling reward. (via POPville)
- Here’s something designed to make you feel safer but most likely makes you feel uneasy: Emergency preparedness drill conducted for hypothetical disaster in D.C. (WJLA)
