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

  • The owners of Vinoteca are opening up a new restaurant called The Royal. It will be a coffee shop/lunch join during the day and a casual bar at night. They’re also going to have homemade vermouth and shaved ice cocktails. Sounds delicious. (via The Royal)
  • The Nations have not played Chuck Brown’s “Bustin’ Loose” in quite a while and people are pretty (understandably) pissed. (via Washingtonian)


  • El Centro is no longer moving to Shaw. (via POPville)
  • A group smoking session took place on the mall yesterday (4/20 if you’re not good with dates) and no one got arrested, or even reprimanded! Which is interesting considering it’s super illegal. (via the Post)


  • If you really want to spy on some elected officials (why???), Thrillist has a list of the restaurants you should hang out in. Here’s a tip: go to one of these restaurants and have a good time with your friends instead. (via Thrillist)
  • Filmfest DC almost died last year, but now it’s back and better than ever (City Paper).
  • Do not expect new Metro stations anytime soon, it will probably be decades before we see a Georgetown or BWI station (boo! hiss!). (via Plan It Metro)


  • Speaking of Metro, Car sharing is coming to even more Metro parking facilities. Which just makes me want to use the Metro less. (via WTOP)


  • Congressional Republicans are messing around with two of D.C.’s anti-discrimination laws. D.C. statehood, anyone? (via WAMU)
  • We’re the worlds 77th largest urban area! Neato. (via Greater Greater Washington)
