Arlington = Hook Up Heaven?
The suburbs around D.C. are growing more like the city. Just across the Potomac River from D.C., Arlington is creating "urban villages" that are drawing young singles to the area.
Props to Kiplinger's for also citing one of the great places in Arlington, Lost Dog Cafe,
Try the "Cowgirl," one of 50 specialty sandwiches at Lost Dog Cafe, in Arlington, Va., where the menu boasts more than 200 beers from 18 countries.
The City Paper has also recently noted the Post's proclivity to tout Arlington as a place for singles. From the post, but as quoted in the City Paper:
“Mike Evans and his friends…had plenty of other activities to choose from—all within walking distance. There was open-mic night at Iota Club & Cafe, cooking lessons at Fresh Fields, a singles mixer at Whitlow’s on Wilson, movies, even shopping for used records and vintage clothes at shops open until 11 p.m.
All of that available on a Wednesday night in what Evans calls ‘the Research Triangle’ (read: great place to check out other singles), a five-block, fun-packed area around Wilson Boulevard.”
