ALXnow’s had some pretty busy weeks this year, but this week was a little slow.

Still, there was interesting news about locations around town that might become tourist destinations. First was the reveal that Landmark Mall plans included an ice skating rink, then that the Art League might have a new home on Slaters Lane.

Also changing: how Alexandrians park. There’s a new feature coming to Old Town’s parking garages that could make it easier to find parking.

On a personal note, this reporter is heading out of town for the next week on his honeymoon in Paris, but the site will be left in the capable hands of James Cullum.
