WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy…
- An Annapolis couple filed a lawsuit when they found out their home was, in fact, filled with snakes. Indy would not be pleased (via WTOP).
- In more pleasant Annapolis news, House of Cards will have an open casting call this weekend, if you ever wanted to travel further into Maryland to pretend like you’re still in Washington (via NBC).
- City Council members introduced new proposals for the budget last night, including measures to prohibit Pepco from shutting off electricity when the temperature is above 95 degrees, as well as preventative steps stopping Congress from affecting city spending (via WaPo).
- Five new speed cams go into effect on Friday, so check yourself before you ticket yourself. If you’re caught going too fast on camera, you’ll receive a ticket in the mail (via WTOP).
- The Post published an article on the nuances that go into the design of DC Brau cans while highlighting the company’s history (via WaPo).
- Plus local artist collective Connersmith is set to open a new gallery in the Shaw area, after selling its space on Florida Avenue in Trinidad last year (via City Paper).
- Dupont will get its own 24 hour diner, but not for at least a month. Hopefully the coffee is good (via Borderstan).
- A new farmers market will open tonight in Columbia Heights and run through September 30. Hurray for produce at accessible after-work hours (via PoPville).
- And finally, the guy who tagged the side of a soon-to-be Subway Restaurant in Mount Pleasant expressed remorse in an interview with Washington City Paper, saying, “the one thing I would have done differently would have been to say ‘Keep Mount Pleasant weird’ because D.C. has never been weird” (via City Paper).
