Welcome to the waning days of August when Congress is in recess, tourists are everywhere, lots of folks are on vacation, but for those of us around town, there's still plenty to do.
It's time for a delicious DC-area summer tradition: Summer 2013 Restaurant Week starts Monday. More than 200 restaurants in the greater Washington area are participating, including Falls Church’s 2941 Restaurant, Mad Fox Brewing Company, Open Kitchen and Pizzeria Orso. Participating restaurants will offer three-course meals for a set price — $20.13 for lunch or $35.13 for dinner.
The Book Stop opens Monday at the local library (120 N. Virginia Ave.). Summer reading participants who have completed their reading requirements can pick up their free books beginning Monday. Participants can continue to log books through Aug. 31.
Learn more about the Internet, email and social media through one-on-one tutoring by appointment at the Falls Church library (120 N. Virginia Ave.) from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday. For more information or to schedule a session, stop by the reference desk or call 703-248-5035.
