Early Briefing: Taxi Meters? Not So Fast.

*The District has said all taxis have to have meters by May 1, but thousands of cabs haven't installed them yet. The Fenty administration says drivers face a $1,000 fine every time they're caught picking up rides without meters after the deadline, but the drivers have avoided putting them in until a judge rules on a suit challenging the legality of replacing zones with meters.

*National Harbor didn't get its liquor licenses from the Maryland legislature this year, but its Food & Wine Festival next month won't be dry. The festival partnered with nonprofit Erikka A. Hayes Foundation, which got a temporary license from the county liquor board.
