Update Wednesday 1/12: I'll arrive in the lobby, near the gift shop, between 6:45 and 7. I'll be wearing
blue. Look for me holding a Meetup sign! **** The Torpedo Factory, on the Alexandria waterfront, stays open late on the second Thursday every month for refreshments and the chance to see art and interact with artists. January's theme is
Wintry Mix: "Cozy up at the Torpedo Factory and enjoy a special evening inspired by the wonder of the winter season! Artist-made snowflakes and twinkling lights will set the scene as visitors enjoy a candy buffet with treats and sweets featuring the colors of winter." The evening will also feature receptions for two art shows, a dance performance, and for those creatively inclined, a chance to make your own snowflake art. This event is
free. However, we welcome an optional $1 donation to help the Culture Club maintain its Meetup.com costs. The closest Metro to the Torpedo Factory is King Street on the Blue and Yellow Lines. You can take a long but pleasant walk through Old Town Alexandria (a little more than a mile) to reach the Torpedo Factory, or take the free
King Street Trolley. Please stay tuned for information about how to find the group. I'll email my cell phone number before the event to those planning to attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP accordingly!
