WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.

  • Metro’s SafeTrack made it through its first rush hour yesterday. People are already adjusting. Rides were down about 20 to 44 percent across the affected stations. Maybe we’ll survive? (via WAMU)
  • The D.C. council voted on the $15 minimum wage today, and the extra dough is good to go. (via Post)


  • Toki Underground’s former executive chef stepped down in April. Now he’s suing his former partners over attempts “to destroy his personal reputation and livelihood.” (via City Paper)
  • Are you a fearless foodie who can’t be stopped, or a Chipotle fiend that was never fazed? Then grab some ‘potle for dinner to support your local library. (via DCPL)


  • Pepco is reporting a power outage affecting about 1,500 customers in multiple ‘hoods. (via PoPville)
  • As we all start to break out the summer threads, Kojo Nnamdi asks if D.C.’s style is really that boring. (via Kojo)
  • 28 cats got dumped at the doorstep of a Greenbelt shelter (a no-kill, thankfully!). Apparently they’re in “fair condition,” as if they’re baseball cards or something. You can adopt one next week. (via WTTG)


  • The District Doughnut pop-up in Georgetown opens today. These guys went to my high school and the doughnuts are delish, so why not indulge? (via Eater)
