It’s Ice Cream Month Again at our Cafes!

July is National Ice Cream month

I hope you’re enjoying this glorious weather! If you’re looking to get out and about, join us at our cafes this month where we’re sharing our stories of where we’ve been and where we’d like to go.

Cafe McLean – July 11

We had a small group at Cafe McLean this month, but we had a good time and met new friends! We were talking about travel, and it always amazes me what a small world we live in, like when people shared memories from when they lived in the same country overseas many years ago. Meanwhile, back home, if you’re looking to spend a day exploring in D.C. here are a couple of ideas. Washington DC

  1. DC Circulator – The Circulator is public transportation that will take you to the District’s main attractions for $1.00 or less. Yep, you read that right! There are several routes that will take you to places like Georgetown, the zoo, and Dupont Circle, as well as one that travels around the Mall. If you’re planning to see the sights around the Mall including around Tidal Basin, keep in mind that it travels counter-clockwise. There are maps and schedules and everything you need to know here, on their website.
  2. Inspired by “Hamilton” – From catching the show at the Kennedy Center to a guided tour at the National Gallery of Art, check out 13 different things to do in DC. Click here to see the whole list.

After enjoying our yummy lunch, (including some ice cream!), we checked out a carnival put on for the Lewinsville Senior Center folk. Our hosts, Lewinsville Retirement Residence, are also hosting the Lewinsville Senior Center while their center is being rebuilt. There were lots of things to do at the carnival, including a cupcake walk and a bean bag toss, and it was fun to see everyone enjoying themselves.

Two cafes next week!

Happiness is ice creamJoin us in Alexandria on Monday and/or Fairfax on Wednesday. We’ll be talking more travel and have fun dressing up for the occasion in favorite clothes from far away places. Don’t forget we’ll also be munching on yummy food and . . . ice cream!
Please RSVP to help us with planning. This is especially helpful for our hosts who are providing us lunch at no cost.
