WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around DC) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.
- IMP – the good folks that bring you shows at 930 club, Merriweather Post, and occasionally UHall – won the bid, and are now operating the Historic Lincoln Theatre! Prepare for the D.C. concert game to ramp up a little bit…
- 400 Koi fish were STOLEN from a pond in Herndon,VA. Two men, over four afternoons, told people that they were “removing unhealthy Koi from the pond,” using fish nets to put them in coolers and haul them off. If you see two fifty-year-old men with far too many Koi fish on their hands, let somebody know. (via WJLA)
- Today, in the wake of yesterday’s dismissal of DOMA, President Obama and Senegalese President Macky Sall had a little public disagreement on stage. When POTUS, currently visiting Senegal to meet with… erm… POS(?) said that equal protection under the law should be “universalized,” Sall said “Say wha?” Awkward. (yahoo news) Oh, and in Senegal gay sex is actually a criminally punishable offense.
- Erik Bruner-Yang, Toki Underground’s founder and head chef, was arrested for domestic dispute yesterday morning, allegedly attacking his ex girlfriend and her fiance. (via Washingtonian)
- In related post-SCOTUS news, a badass tumblr was created for Hon. Ruth Bader Ginsberg — the Notorious RBG. Read about it at InTheCapital!
- New living-wage bill passed the first round of City Council voting! Retail stores exceeding 75,000 Square ft. anywhere in the city will have to pay their employees a living-wage of $12.50 an hour, if the bill ends up passing. (via Huffington Post) Good news for smaller retailers…
- If you’re a biker in D.C., you’re going to want to read about how this guy went from being hospitalized and accused of a moving violation to proving that the driver of the car that hit him was to blame. A victory against prejudice! Huzzah!
That’s all folks!
