Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

PENN QUARTER— Industry Night is back next Monday at Graffiato, and Pizzeria Orso's Will Artley and mixologist Todd Thrasher will take over the restaurant. It's $10 admission, with free food and drink specials. [EaterWire]

VARIOUS LOCATIONS— Want brunch, but lack cash? Washingtonian runs down some affordable options around town. The emphasis here is on value rather than dirt cheap status, and such places as A&J and Florida Ave. Grill are featured [Washingtonian]

SHUTDOWN WOES— Here's another group negatively affected by the government shutdown: fast food workers. Washington City Paper talks to some folks who work at fast food restaurants located within shuttered government buildings. [WCP]
