What's your history with Alexandria and DC?
I moved here after finishing school in NYC a few years ago and settled into Alexandria just outside of Old Town for work.
Discovering Alexandria- what are your favourite places to shop/eat/go with friends/people watch?
There are a few go to spots in Old Town depending on what mood I am in, but favorites include: Brabo Tasting Room, Majestic Cafe, Caphe Banh Mi, or the Grille at Morrison House for eating. For shopping there's so many lovely stores: Zoe Boutique, Bishop Boutique, Current Boutique... She's Unique, Zoubeck, consignment shops-- the list goes on.
Perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon in Alexandria?
Coffee and treats from Killer ESP followed by some window shopping and walking around the waterfront sounds like the perfect Saturday afternoon to me!
