WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy…
- Some of the cameras in the National Zoo will go offline on June 1st, but don’t fret, the panda cam will remain online. No comment yet from Bao Bao (via WJLA).
- Flying Dog Brewery cancelled its plans for an experimental new brewery in Loudon County, cutting off D.C. from some delicious craft beer (via Eater).
- Drone Brunch at Paperhaus celebrates its third year anniversary of combining synthesizers and cinnamon rolls at the Petworth house venue (via WAMU)
- Someone made a map of all the rooftop bars in D.C. (and a few in Arlington), which is especially useful as temperatures go into the low 90s this week. (via Washingtonian).
- D.C. parking might get even more expensive, making parking tickets $5 higher and pushing back free parking until after midnight. As if the rent wasn’t high enough… (via WJLA)
- The Metro had a busy week, with the American Freedom Defense Initiative submitting an advertisement featuring a picture of Muhammed. Non coincidentally, AFDI is also listed as an anti-Islam hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. (via NBC Washington)
- Also, some dude who got Catfished on MTV threatened terroristic (not a word but that’s what CBS used and we’re linking to them so terroristic it is) violence against Metro, and was promptly arrested (via CBS DC)
- And finally, no new Metro cars until the Federal Government approves the purchase. (via WJLA)
