The Arlington Fun Ride — by hard work and luck — managed to live up to its name this weekend.
This past weekend, the Arlington Fun Ride drew more than 150 people out to enjoy a beautiful Saturday morning riding the Arlington Loop. The ride — in its third year — is put on a by a group of volunteers to demonstrate that Arlington's trails are a great place for all Arlingtonians to have fun and get fit. The idea is that by providing a supportive and safe environment to see how to tie all of our the trails together, participants will discover just how easy it is to enjoy those trails.

The Crystal City Diamond Derby is returning for a fall edition. You've never seen anything like it.
Want to see something you’ve never seen before? Head down to Crystal City on Saturday, Sept. 29, for the second running of the Crystal City Diamond Derby.

My time there included lots of gawking at decorated bikes, racing on my own bike through a …

Signature Theatre kicks off new season with Open House and Whorehouse
When Signature Theatre hosts its annual open house Saturday, expect a few proud whores to show up. The open house is free and takes place from noon to 10 p.m. in front of Signature Theatre in Shirlington Village. The all-day event will feature master classes, discount ticket offers and “Signature Idol,” a talent competition. Among the many activities will be live performances, including cast members from the upcoming run of "The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas", which opens Aug. 14. When you see the poster for the show you immediately notice the word "whorehouse" emphasized. In fact, the word "whorehouse" is about 100 times larger than the itty bitty phrase “the best little” sitting below. That’s by design. Signature’s Artistic Director, …
