A Holiday Guide to Eating, Drinking and Being Merry

December 7, 2017

Celebrate the season with these holiday dining options near ROSS’ Alexandria apartments!

There’s so much fun to be had during this time of year, but let’s face it: eating and drinking are the best part. Even better, lots of restaurants and bars nearby your ROSS Alexandria apartment feature holiday menus, drink specials and other festive fun. Check out our round up of a few great options below:

Less than a mile from ROSS’ Heritage at Old Town Alexandria apartments, Blackwall Hitch offers a special Christmas Eve brunch and dinner menu, a New Year’s Eve dinner and a New Year’s Day brunch. Holiday menu dinner options include lamb loin chops, surf & turf and day boat scallops. If a casual holiday cocktail is more your speed, Blackwall Hitch also has a nightly happy hour from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., with specials on small plate dining and cocktails. Enjoy some delicious food and drink, and maybe even hear some holiday music from one of the bands that play live nightly! See a full list of Alexandria restaurants opened on major holidays, including Brabo, Hank’s Pasta Bar and The Majestic, here.

If you’d rather spend your holiday cooking in your Alexandria apartment or visiting relatives out of town, a pre-holiday dinner party is a great option for friends and family you won’t see on the actual day. The Warehouse in Old Town offers a “lofty event space holding up to 60 people” – perfect for hosting a quaint or grandiose holiday extravaganza featuring delicious catering by the restaurant. If you’d prefer a smaller dinner party, select from their preset “Dinner Party” menu. For just $41.95, enjoy your choice of appetizer, main course and dessert from the Creole-inspired menu. Selections include: crawfish and shrimp beignets, crawfish crab imperial and key lime cheesecake. YUM!

If you’re looking for something bigger than a casual holiday drink , how about a festive bar crawl? Enjoy a festive afternoon at the 2nd Annual Del Ray Candy Cane Bar Crawl! At just $10 a ticket, you’ll receive trolley transportation, a raffle ticket and drink specials at lots of popular hot spots in Del Ray, including KaiZen Tavern, Northside 10 and Stomping Ground. This event also supports a great cause! Ticket proceeds will go to Alexandria Neighborhood Health.

There are boundless possibilities for fun at any level this holiday season. Whether it’s a cheap cocktail and small plate happy hour or an extravagant dinner party, we hope this list has you covered!
