Tommy McFly Officially Off the Market
94.7 Fresh FM host Tommy McFly posted a photo on social media of himself and fiancé Chrys Kefalas holding their Maryland marriage license. With clapping emojis between each word, the caption read: “One step closer!” We can’t wait to see more of the adorable couple when they tie the knot.

david-lettermanDavid Letterman has won the 20th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, which will be presented Oct. 22 at the Kennedy Center. Last year’s winner was Bill Murray.

Miss DC Crowned Miss USA
Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough made her mark on the pageant world earlier this month when she was crowned Miss USA in Las Vegas.

This is the second year in a row that Miss DC took the Miss USA crown. Best of luck to McCullough at the Miss Universe pageant.

Save the Date for (Yet Another) March
Mark — or should we say “bark”? — your calendars. Another march is being planned for early next month, the Hill reported. The “Bipawtisan March” will be held June 4, with proceeds benefitting the Humane Rescue Alliance. The march hopes to raise awareness of animal adoption and fostering — a cause we can all support, as love for a pet is universal.

D.C. No Longer Fittest in the Land
Sadly, we have been demoted. After holding the “fittest city” title in the American College of Sports Medicine’s American Fitness Index for three years running, D.C. lost to Minneapolis by a lean one-point margin. Maybe it’s time to get back to the gym?
