Michael Bay is blowing up DC next week, but, in the most generally benign possible way.  Transformers 3 is filming in DC next week, with a couple evening shoots near the Capitol.  Click through for the map of the closures on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.  Street closures will be far less draconian than your average State of the Union, but still noticeable, starting at 6:30 in the evening and going through 6:30 the next day.  Shia LeBoeuf is promising us that this will be totally worth it, bro, and you’ll be lovin’ him longtime come next summer.

We don’t take his word for it, given how awful Transformers 2 was, but hey, at least they’re bothering to film in DC, unlike so many other movies.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
