I personally don’t love crowds, especially when they involve lots of families with kids. So rather than catch the fireworks at Oronoco Bay Park at 9:30PM with everyone, I like the idea of watching them from the rooftop. Like BRABO’s. The Alexandria restaurant is hosting a $50 all-inclusive rooftop celebration this Saturday from 8PM-10PM with wine, beer and sangria (BRABO’s sangria is pretty tasty!!) as well as hors d’oeuvres from BRABO’s chef de cuisine Chris Watson served with a side of panoramic views. You can visit the restaurant’s facebook page for more information.
You only turn 262 once!! The city of Alexandria, VA is celebrating its birthday (and America’s too… though she’s younger, just 235 years old) in style this weekend, with a concert by the Alexandria Symphony orchestra, poetry, food, a birthday cake and fireworks.
