Good afternoon. If you haven't been outside since you signed on this morning, you just get out and enjoy the sunshine and low humidity. Today's batch of blog posts is a mix. We've got a bit of development, a bit of transportation and a roundup of fall festivals. Yes, folks, it's almost fall. Read on.

D.C. Like A Local offers this handy guide for navigating D.C. via Metrobus. It’s aimed at tourists but is handy for locals who want to get to places not served by Metro.

Builders of the contentious redevelopment project along Wisconsin Avenue in the Cleveland Park neighborhood are sponsoring a “launch party” Thursday to mark the beginning of a project (more than 10 years in the making) to modernize the Giant supermarket and bordering retail strip. DCMud reports. Sorry about that, just got word via Ward3DC that the "launch party" has been canceled to avoid overlap with Rosh Hashanah.

If you’ve ever walked back to your car and seen that tell-tale slip of paper tucked beneath the windshield wiper, take heart. reports that in Arlington, even the police get parking tickets.

With Bill Gates and Warren Buffett headed to China this month to spread the word about the importance of giving, we offer this great post from Philanthropy Front and Center that shows that the U.S.’s younger generation already understands why it’s important to give.

The owner of the Argonaut outlines some of the changes patrons will see once the downstairs section of the popular bar reopens after a fire. It was a tough summer for owner Scott Magnuson, who lost his bar to a fire and burglary, then his car to a thief. We're glad something good is happening. It’s all on Frozen Tropics.

O Say Can You See? The blog of the National Museum of American History is looking for some feedback – and as an added inducement, is offering a prize. Help them out.

We also want to wish a happy belated blogiversary to DCist, which celebrates its sixth anniversary this week. Congrats!

That's it for today. Thanks for reading and have a fun evening. We'll be back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. blogosphere. Remember, if there's a blog we're missing or if you're celebrating a blogiversary, message me at
