Exploring Old Town Alexandria – Bubbles & Oysters

We spent an entire day exploring our hometown, Alexandria, VA — there’s so much to do, so we picked a theme. Oysters. What goes well with oysters? Some bubbly, of course! (Love bubbles as much as we do, check out our Champagne Cosmopolitan Cocktail or another favorite, our St. Germain and Champagne).

    I grew up in Alexandria and loved it there. Now I live in Centreville, not as interesting. So many memories

      Alexandria would have been a great place to grow up. Joanne and I grew up in Annapolis which is a great town too.

    Okay. That was fun! Adam — Was the lobster roll as good as it looked? Please to say next time how much you were enjoying the food… or not. 🙂
