FALLS CHURCH—Kids are back in school now and Pizzeria Orso is using that as an opportunity to launch a new kids menu and promotion through which kids eat free. The new menu includes picky palate specialties like pasta with a choice of marinara or butter and cheese, as well as a tomato and mozzarella pizza. Then, on Tuesday nights, children younger than 10 get a free item from the new menu — with the catch being that their parents have to order a pie off the real menu. [EaterWire]

SHAW—DCist reports that the Giant in Shaw is closing on September 8, leaving neighbors a little low on shopping options. So the grocer is launching a shuttle to take them to the store in Columbia Heights three times a week. That doesn't sound like fun. [DCist]

CAPITOL HILL—Chris Shott is all nostalgic about the good old days when his personification of the starving writer cliche used to eat wings at the Capitol Lounge for 10 cents. He discovers that they are now 25 cents, but taste the same. Also, some guy ate 53 of them in 10 minutes on Tuesday. [WCP]
