DC News You Can (Maybe) Use

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

  • D.C. and Baltimore could get a little bit of snow today! There was a little ice rain happening earlier which is the worst of both worlds, but I’m holding out for some real flurries. (via WJLA)
  • The Downtown BID has essentially released their vision board for what downtown will look like and there isn’t a single brutalist building in sight. We have to embrace what makes our city weird and unique, not become someones social media dream land. (Although, more parks is always a good thing and I’m very down with that.) (via WBJ)
  • Metro has decided you’re allowed to stay out until 2 a.m. on New Years Eve. Thanks, Mom and Dad! (via WUSA9)

  • Also, Metro is set to release their report on whether their trains are shaking nearby homes, so get in your last minute bets now. (via WTOP)
  • And our final piece of Metro news: The red line is having problems that are similar to the ones it had right before the 2009 Fort Totten crash. I pass that memorial plaque every morning and it is a weird and sobering thing to see right before you get on a train. (via Post)

  • City Paper went behind the scenes of what it takes for the Kennedy Center to pull of The Nutcracker and it’s full of interesting tidbits like the fact that they use 5,000 lbs. of dry ice. I don’t remember dry ice being that crucial to the main plot line, but I’m sure it works out in the end.
  • Also Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg were in town, just in case you care about that. (via Post)
  • The Dupont Circle Circa is closing. I never ate there but it’s weird to think it will be gone. I’ve used it to give tourists directions for years. (via City Paper)

  • In food news, the new Dolcezza at The Wharf is going to have breakfast and stuff! That’s fun! (via Eater)
  • A band that just started are playing their last show and I don’t really know why this is news but who am I to tell the Post what to do?
