It's not too late to join us for our tour of Sex and the Old Town! We have room for 6 more people this Thursday night, November 18th. We are meeting at the Union Street Public House (just ask for the meetup group) at 7:00 pm for a drink before we head out to what promises to be a clear, if slightly brisk evening in Old Town Alexandria. We will heat up the night with talk of sex and scandal. Although there isn't a lot of walking, do wear comfortable shoes and dress warmly. We will learn all about the brothels of the Civil War, modern-day floating whore houses, relationships among the founding families, and end with one of the biggest sex scandals in Old Town -- the opening of a sex shop on King Street. After a demonstration of some rabbits a la Sex and the City (thank you, Charlotte), you will have time to browse on your own.
If you take the metro to King Street, there is a free shuttle bus that goes up and down King. Take the shuttle to the end of King and walk east on Union to Union Street Public House (less than a block away).
If driving, I suggest that you park the car across from Chadwick's in the $5 outdoor parking. It's $5 for the entire evening, and you won't have to worry about 2-hour parking or driving around looking for a spot.
You can pre-pay the $15 for the tour, which includes one glass of wine, beer, or house cocktail (simple drink like rum and coke) with paypal or you can pay with cash or a check the night of the tour.DC Local Tourists Group
Also consider joining us for a visit to the US Botanic Gardens this Sunday! In addition to our visit to the gardens, we will see Bartholdi Gardens and end with lunch at the cafe in the Museum of the American Indian, considered the best that the Smithsonian offers. The tour is FREE! Lunch is at your own cost.
I hope to meet some of you Thursday and/or Sunday!
