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

  • Unfortunately, we’re going to kick everything off with some sad news. The staff at Washington City Paper are having their salaries cut by 40%. We love the City Paper. We read it every day. It’s an incredibly valuable source of information and we’re always impressed with the stories they cover. Writers, editors and administrators deserve to get paid a living wage, and we’re beyond sorry to hear about what SouthComm is doing. (via Washingtonian)
  • And speaking of City Paper, they did an incredibly interesting piece about sexual assault and the Marijuana Policy Project. Read it and support them.

  • WAMU explains what the tax bill means for folks living in D.C.
  • If you drive into D.C., get pumped because a section of Beach Drive is about to re-open. (via WTOP)
  • The D.C. government spent $140,000 on its Amazon proposal and they really don’t want you to know about it. (via Washingtonian)

  • In Metro news, the trains really are shaking people’s houses in Petworth and it wasn’t a mass hallucination after all! (via WTOP)
  • Caps player Brooks Orpik recommends you get the salad at Rose’s Luxury and we find that very charming. (via Washingtonian)

  • And speaking of food, Zagat has its list of the seven things you need to eat in D.C. before 2017 is over.
  • Urban Turf takes a close look at D.C.’s burgeoning weed house party scene, if you’re into it.
  • If you need to waste some time at work (or at home!) we highly recommend Eater’s Gift Guide.
