Morning Notes

Catch on the Avenue Closing — “In a quick social media post on Sunday, December 8, 2019, Catch on the Avenue, 2419 Mount Vernon Avenue, announced it is closing. ‘It is with regret that we announce the permanent closing of Catch on the Ave. Thank you for all your support. We look forward to seeing you at our other locations.'” [Zebra]

Some Residents Want to Ban Waze — “A few residents asked why Alexandria can’t just ban Waze and other congestion-avoidance apps from allowing commuters through certain parts of the City where cut-through traffic is the worst. The reason Mayor Wilson gave: free speech. Other municipalities that have tried to block Waze have lost in court on the premise that Waze is simply providing data to the public and thus has some protection.” [Alexandria Living]

Free Adoptions for the Holidays — “Those looking to add a furry member to the family are in luck this holiday season. Priority Toyota in Springfield, Virginia, is paying for all adoption fees, spaying and neutering and other medical expenses for all pets ages six months and up at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria… The adoption fee promotion runs through January 2, 2020.” [WTOP]
