If there’s anything that grips Y&H readers, it’s tragedy, and it doesn’t get much more tragic than the homicide of Nori Amaya, the co-owner of Coppi’s Organic on U Street. People were obviously desperate for information on the strangulation. Even our negligible little item was widely visited.

Here’s how the week shook out:

  1. Nori Amaya’s Friends and Fans Express Their Grief on Her Facebook Page
  2. A Certain Goddamn Budweiser Beer That People Can’t Stop Reading About
  3. Birch & Barley Opens Today. What’s Inside? (This item is quickly entering Select 55 territory.)
  4. Tom and Derek Brown to Channel Spirits and Iggy Pop at the Passenger
  5. D’Acqua Shutters, Ping Pong Dim Sum Set to Open Next Month
