Default Alexandria, VA - Anyone???

Going to Alexandria, VA. Flying out Monday AM. I'll be there until Friday AM.

Staying at the Embassy Suites, Alexandria VA, 703-684-5900. Never been there.

Any brewers around there want to go have a few and talk brew?

I won't have a car (flying out) so my transportation range will be limited this trip.

As always, the first round's on me.

Later.

No but if you postpone a few months I'll be out there

Can't. It's a meeting with some contractors at their facility.

Next time, maybe?

Won't be there Monday but if you get a chance, hit Murphy's Irish Pub... they have a good sweet stout if you like that style. Prices and food are pretty good too.

A little too far for me to make it this time, but definitley post up when you get down to the Ft. Eustis area. You ever make it down there?

Dang! It's all about timing...I spent a month at Eustis back in 97...twice.

I attended the Apache and Kiowa armament courses.

Unfortunately, I have no reason to go there again now. There are no M109A6 Paladins there.

Unfortunately not. I'm actually in the Hampton Roads area but my wife's sales area is DC so we get up there now and then. Alexandria is a pretty cool place. Enjoy.
