Help us celebrate five years of local news coverage

All Annandale Blog readers and friends are invited to the Broyhill Crest Recreation Club tonight for Blogapalooza, a celebration of the blog’s fifth anniversary.

We’ll have live music, food from local restaurants, a Zumba dance-off, and the presentation of the first-ever  Annie Awards to the top local spots selected by readers. Bands include Space Junk Jammers, Swell, the RootzBoyz, and Big Hot Mess.

The Broyhill Crest pool is at 7212 Early St., Annandale. Enter at the gate by the pavilion. Blogapalooza starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $15. The rain date is Sunday, June 29, 4 p.m. Visit the Blogapalooza page for more information.

During the past five years the Annandale Blog has covered businesses opening and closing; redevelopment plans; crimes; property maintenance complaints; and controversial issues, such as the school boundary change, residential studio units, and a proposed cell tower. We’ve also done lots of good-news stories about community volunteers and the like.

These are the top five most-read stories of all time:
