WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around DC) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy…
- Finally, the day you’ve all been waiting for, the Screen on the Green lineup has been announced!
July 21 – The Karate Kid (1984)
July 28 – Lover Come Back (1961)
August 4 – Key Largo (1948)
August 11 – A Soldier’s Story (1984)
Looks good to me.
- Female-named hurricanes kill more people than male-named hurricanes. Because people respect them less. That’s not a joke, that’s what one study found. (via Capital Weather Gang)
- In order to reduce bullying and help teach elementary school kids how to be more empathetic, DC schools are bringing in babies. Yes, babies. This is a weird gif. (via Washington Post)
- Monument Realty’s Chinatown project was 86’d due to the proposed building being “too aggressive” for the neighborhood. The Historic Preservation Review Board says they hope they’ll find a nice, sweet, mild-mannered building to fill the space soon. (via DistrictSource)
- Better mind yourself the next time you’re in line for a Georgetown Cupcake: the bakery is hiring off-duty cops to police the huge lines that hang around the building every day. So from now on, it has to be a fair fight from now on for that last red velvet — leave the switchblades at home. (via DCist)
- Marion Barry threatened to “kick David Catania’s ass” at a fundraiser last Saturday for mayoral candidate Muriel E. Bowser. We think it was a joke, but only time will tell. (via Washington Post)
- A ferry from Alexandria to D.C. might be in the works. The department of transportation issued a $4 million grant to be used on two ferries, shuttling passengers from Navy Yard to the Alexandria waterfront. A much more luxurious option than sweating it out in the metro, we think. (via WTOP)
