WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around DC) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.
- Rhino Bar in Georgetown will host a Philip Seymour Hoffman movie marathon starting 11 a.m. Sunday to pay tribute to the movie giant. Whether it was a cult leader with a crush on Joaquin Phoenix or a washed-up 80s teen star, you can mourn for your favorite Hoff with a drink in hand. (Via DCist)
- Speaking of mourning: Subway will remove the delightful chemical responsible for its signature bread. Azodiacarbonamide, a food-lube of sorts, makes the bread more elastic and is found in yoga mats and fake leather. RIP chemical perfection. (Via USA Today)
- DC photographer Mike Mitchell’s photos of The Beatles at their first U.S. show in 1964 will make you long for yesterday. Uline Arena will display them Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. as part of the “Yesterday & Today” concert.
- Russian eatery Mari Vanna will host a kick-off party for the Sochi Olympics February 7th. Stop in for a complimentary vodka shot, some traditional Sochi delights (solyanka soup, sish kabob and khachapuri,) or because you’re sad you missed Pussy Riot on Colbert.
- DC is about to get an influx of bruised women and men proclaiming: “today is a good day to die.” The Maryland Senate passed a bill yesterday banning the sale of grain alcohol. (Via WAMU)
- Minor Threat played its first show in an Adams Morgan rowhouse that is now up for sale for just over 2 million shmackerels. We know you’ll be sitting in the waiting room of that open house…wait, wrong band. (Via Urban Turf)
