ALERT: Due to a problem with reservations, I have changed our location to Union Pub House. I have sent everyone on the list an email with my phone number. I will be at Columbia Firehouse briefly to intercept anyone who did not get my earlier emails. Please accept my apologies., Kimbers [masked]
Feeling a little festive? Or maybe "Bah Humbug"? Come out to our pre-holidays brunch and enjoy brunch @ Union Pub House.
After brunch, take in the festive mood of Old Town Alexandria's King Street as we peruse quaint shops and historical sites along the way. At the edge of the Potomac, we will visit the art mecca of the Torpedo Factory. The Torpedo Factory is a great place to find an artistic, unique and heartfelt gift. Done with your holiday shopping? Then just enjoy the creativity of the resident artisans as they work, and peruse their various arts and crafts. Interested in picking up a new skill? Pick up a list of classes @ the Torpedo Factory to improve your artistic street cred. http://www.torpedofactory.org/directions.htm
