Tysons, VA

Tysons may not have the liveliest nightlife at the moment, but that could soon change as more late-night restaurants and places to hang out open. “Tysons After Dark” will highlight a different spot every week.

Tysons has several gyms and fitness studios are people looking for places to exercise indoors.

It’s now three days into 2020 — a.k.a. the new “Roaring 20s.”

Did you create new year’s resolutions earlier this week? If so, how are you doing?

Tysons Reporter has a few changes ready to roll out next week, including revamped Morning Notes that will now get posted on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Expect more newsroom pop-ups at local coffee shops in the spring and more opportunities for reader engagement.

Editor Catherine Douglas Moran’s resolution is to exercise three times a week. So far, she’s on track — and walking as much as possible for reporting in Tysons.

Reporter Ashley Hopko plans to read at least one new book each month “on a topic that I’m completely unfamiliar with.” Yesterday, she kicked off her resolution by picking up a copy of “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson.
