WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy…
- It’s no secret that the Metro has been especially bad recently (looking at you, Red Line) but WMATA hopes to earn back your trust with a newly proposed schedule. The solution? Increase the time between trains to secure more reliable service (via WaPo).
- You know what’s just as good as Shark Week? SharkFest, a week long television “shark festival” that happens concurrently. NatGeo Wild clearly does not give a fuck (via WBJ).
- A Maryland carnival worker (and ride operator) was arrested for toking on the job, which must’ve been a huge bummer for him at the time (via NBC).
- Purported 24-hour restaurant Olivia’s Diner is set for a soft opening tomorrow. While only open from 7 AM to 10 PM currently, owner Thomas Marr says the joint will expand its hours, provided there’s interest (via Borderstan).
- And finally, turns out people are less-than-previously excited about the H Street Corridor streetcars, given that they’ve been running for some time with no passengers and have been host to some classic Metro-style problems (like catching on fire) (via Washington Times).
