Just one more day until Valentine's—are you ready? Check out our Valentine's Day guide for lots of gift and date ideas. And for the procrastinators among us, here are some restaurants with tables for two still available.

News networks were buzzing this morning about a commuter plane that crashed in upstate New York late last night killing 50 people. It hit a home in suburban Buffalo, but miraculously two of the people inside the home were able to get out alive.

A puppy mill in Wayne County, North Carolina, was busted earlier this week, and some of the pups have been brought to the Washington area for adoption.

Bloomingdale (for now) reports that San Antonio Bar & Grill, a Tex-Mex spot with outposts in Northern Virginia, is coming to the neighborhood.

And over in Shaw, neighborhood residents are coming together to transform an unkempt city-owned parcel on 10th Street, Northwest, into a community park. Now that gives us the warm-fuzzies.
