Hey everyone! Looks like some uh, “weather” is on its way. Why do I use quotation marks? It could be because I am freaking out a little about Hurricane Florence and I am not alone. Read coverage from the Capital Weather Gang and official reports from the National Hurricane Center. Keep refreshing those links, as new data…uh… pours in. (Sorry)

Keep an eye out for whoever it is that keeps opening fire hydrants around town. Not only is it illegal but it can affect water pressure and quality across town. HOLD THE PRESSES! The guy has been arrested. DCist and FOX5

In election news, S. Kathryn Allen will not be on the ballot for at-large councilmember position, challenging Elissa Silverman. The DC Board of Elections and Ethics actually took a stand regarding the possibility that her petition signatures were forged to a large degree. Wow. WAMU

A NYC-bound bus stop near Eastern Market? It could work, but then again, it seems a little ill-conceived. Capitol Hill Corner

I went to my first game at Audi Field recently and absolutely loved it. Everything from the concessions (pupas! arepas!) to the good sightlines (with the possible exception of when a corner kick happens) to the thoughtful architectural details (you can see the pitch from the street!) is just lovely. This Washington Post article about DC United players learning Spanish kind of tied the room together for me. Washington Post (subscription)

Amazon just joined the DC Chamber of Commerce. I guess it really was #ObviouslyDC all along. Wish someone would tell us more about it. Washington Business Journal 

If you’re a fan of Dacha, read this article about their upcoming outpost over at Navy Yard. Eater DC

Cheap(er) pasta can be yours in our neighborhood: Bistro Italiano, right off Stanton Park, gets kudos. Post Local

Puppers and their hoomans celebrating the newest dog park at Capitol Riverfront. Awwwwww! On Tap

It’s always nice to get a nod in travel guides. Virginian-Pilot
