  • Reston, VA anyone?

    Is anyone here from Reston, VA? I'm going to be down that way on the 12th-13th for a conference. Might have some time free if anyone is up for a beer!

    The irony is that Damonte used to live in Herndon (worked in Reston) and BleedingKnee used to live in Alexandria (worked in Sterling).

    Go visit the Sweetwater Tavern in Sterling, it's not far away. It's a microbrewery with some dynamite local brews along with a really nice outdoor bar.

          Man, I moved from Alexandria 2 years ago, and all my co-workers talked about Sweetwater but I never got to go. We all went out to eat a lot after work, but every time I missed Sweetwater.

          I also really liked Generous George's Pizza

          I just did a google search for the link above and it turns out they closed the one in Alexandria that was right next to my apt. Thats F'ed up. They still have one out near Reston, but I never tried that location.

            I kind of wish I knew about some of the places down there 2 or 3 years ago when I went down there to have my head examined. (No lie, they did a SPEC scan) ;) Then again, I would have been too young to drink back then...

            Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't Reston near DC?

            Have fun, Apo.

              I know it's late notice, but I can meet you for a beer tonight if you get this message. Reston's not too far from where I am. Let me know!

                  Dang, I wish I'd have seen this thread sooner.
                  That's only about an hour or so away from where I live and I'd have made the drive.

                    .
                    Yep, its out side of DC to the west in Northern Virginia. Depending on the traffic, it's about 20 mins to an hour or more drive time. Kind of near Dulles airport.

                    The area has exploded in the last 10 or so years with major companies opening offices, especially tech companies. Prices of housing will blow your mind.

                      Re: Reston, VA anyone?

                      When Damonte was living there, people were paying $300,000 for a 1bd/br condo, less than 1,000 sq ft, before construction was finished.

                      A parking spot in the garage was extra.

                        This. I also used to live there, back when I actually posted and played.

                        Housing is godawfully expensive, good luck to anyone moving in.

                          Well.. I didn't get to meet up with anyone, but I want to say this.....

                          Reston is a BEAUTIFUL city. It's nothing like any other city I've been to. It seemed very clean, parking (free garages) was ample and the layout of the city was very friendly. The bike path (W&OD or something like that, IIRC) ran behind our hotel and into the city. That made for a couple nice walks into the city rather than driving.

                          I was very impressed. I'm sure I'll be down there again in the future and at least now I know who to send PMs to!

                              Reston is great, but it costs an arm and a leg to live there and it's a really tough commute into DC. I will definitely try to give you a little more heads up next time if I see you're coming to town!
