Happy April Fool’s Day, Reston!

Some things were a big joke today. Others, not so much.

At Reston Town Center, the fountain was filled with inflatable pool toys Friday morning.

Last night at Reston Town Center, officials outlined the no-joke process for the paid parking system coming this summer. Reston Town Center is an “elite destination,” they said.

Over on Modern Reston, our friends followed up last year’s brilliant story about a monorail at Lake Anne with this gem about a certain golf course-owning presidential candidate taking over a certain embattled public golf course here. The indoor ski hill and tanning concierge should tip you off that it is high satire.

Here at Reston Now, we are thinking about writing future editions in invisible ink and covering Annapolis as part of our hyperlocal strategy. April Fool’s! We’re still free, here five days a week and strictly hyperlocal.

Did you pull off any great pranks today?

    I am wondering, Karen, how much you could charge me to troll here before I took my “business” to Modern Reston, or the Patch or one of the other alternatives the names of which I cannot even recall.. Hmmmn.

    I confess that I had a rough day … first this and then about 5:30 I saw this breaking news: http://www.visitmysmokies.com/blog/smoky-mountains/active-volcano-discovered-under-great-smoky-mountains/. Paul and I own 2 vacation rental cabins in the Smokies (one of my non-volunteer jobs – I property manage them).

    And then my youngest grandchild told me someone had left Easter trash at the playground! (A joke, and she got me. She knows I hate litter.)
