South Arlington Braces for Shirlington Springfest April 26th
I live in the Heatherlea Condominium Community, not far from Shirlington Village. We are all braced for more of the same DUI, DWI, and massive public intoxication arising from 10,000 or more urban hipsters descending on Shirlington for Springfest and partying until they puke, not only from the alcohol served at the event but from pub crawling until Shirlington's bars close Sunday morning.
We expect the Arlington Police Department will (again) stand around while the yupsters get wasted and then stagger to wherever they parked whatever vehicles they drove to the event and take off for home about 3 times over the limit for DWI.
Which adults are responsible for this event? David Von Storch, CEO of the hipster entertainment corporation that owns Capital Cities Brewery, a major sponsor of Springfest; Don Wood, CEO of Federal Realty Investment Trust, which owns Shirlington Village; Martin Walsh, Managing Partner of the Walsh, Colucci law firm that represents Federal Realty; Douglas Scott, Chief of the Arlington Police Department; and Jay Fisette, Chairman of the Arlington County Board of Supervisors. And the local Democratic Party ward heelers who help the aformentioned inflict these festivals on us and our families.
