I am writing this on February 23 and the temperature is 65 degrees. Talk about some weird weather. Two years ago we had 18 inches of snow. Even though the weather is favorable, the economy is not, and gas prices are expected to top $4.00 a gallon by the time you read this. Don’t let this stop you from getting out and about. Grab a friend, split the cost of the gas and take a road trip. This month I visited Winchester, Virginia…only 75 miles away and worth the drive. On the way out there you can turn off of Route 50 on to route 17 and drive 7 miles to Three Fox Vineyards, our winery of the month.
As you have probably figured out, we are very “Irish” this month. There are a number of great Irish restaurants to visit in the area but we are partial to Old Town’s Murphy’s and O’Connell’s. We have profiled Jimmy Fagan; owner of Ireland’s Four Courts and Charles Oppman takes you dining at Samuel Beckett’s in the Villages of Shirlington.
We would like to say Happy 1st anniversary to our friends at Harrington’s Irish Kitchen & Pub at National Harbor. Still can’t believe there is an Irish Pub is PG County. Be sure to stop in and grab a pint to celebrate with them.
Speaking of NH, our business profile this month is Maris Elaine Gallery, a shop featuring fine art, jewelry, home furnishings and decorating services. If you are in search of something special and unique, you will find it here.
With this spring like weather, don’t forget water taxi service to National Harbor starts back this month. It is a great way to go back and forth and be on the water. Also, boat shuttle service to the Washington National’s games will depart from the Alexandria waterfront soon. This is the absolute best way to get to and from a game!
In the spirit of the season I leave you with the old Irish blessing:
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
