I would like to invite all of you to a meet up event on February 17th in Old Town Alexandria (DC metro area).
Myself and Ed from Pizza in Motion are the hosts, and we welcome local travelers and not-so-locals-who-feel-like-popping-into-the-area-alike.
Stop by and meet fellow travelers, catch up with old friends, and shoot the breeze over some fantastic drinks.
This tavern specializes in European wines and beer from historic vineyards and breweries. The wine selection only has a mild markup, so I’ve been spoiled by it lately. ($8 for a glass of Chinon-region Cabernet Franc as compared to the $8 for a glass of Sycamore Lane elsewhere).
Happy hour goes until 7pm, but if you pre-register for this event, you will get happy hour until 8pm. 40 people who register get their first happy hour drink on us–just make sure you select the free drink option when registering! (If it isn’t there, then it is sold out). Twenty of those tickets are open now. 20 more will open up once Pizza in Motion posts about it, so if you missed out on the free drink from my post, keep checking his blog today for when he posts it.
John Strongbow’s is owned by veterans and serves a variety of European dishes in addition to your typical pub bar snacks. It is located off the King Street stop on the Blue Line. If you do not want to walk from the metro station, there is a free Old Town shuttle that stops right nearby. (The cross streets are Columbus and Washington).
Ed and I will be present, of course, and look forward to meeting all of you.
For any travel die-hards who want to attend from afar, the Kimpton Hotel Monaco is two blocks away. There’s also a Hilton, Embassy Suites, and Wyndham by the metro station. There nearest Hyatt is the Reagan Airport one, about a three-mile Uber drive away.
We look forward to seeing you!
