Alexandria Cars & Coffee
By Bob Tagert
On July 26th, I attended my first Alexandria Cars & Coffee event at TJ Stones restaurant. I was familiar with this event since I have a few friends who bring their antique/historic cars to these gatherings. This was the first one at TJ’s and it was well attended. Cars range from new Corvettes and Bentleys to muscle cars to autos of our youth.
The group started meeting at the Hollin Hall shopping center on Fort Hunt Road in 2012. The group meets March-November at Hollin Hall shopping center on the 1st & 3rd Sunday mornings and at Sherwood Gourmet on Sherwood Hall Lane on the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings.
The group hopes to expand its base by appearing at TJ Stones, Shooter Mcgee’s and a few other restaurants in the future. It is a great place to meet some nice folks, enjoy these beautiful automobiles and enjoy brunch or lunch after or during the event.
Some of these vehicles will also appear at the Speed & Style get together on King Street on September 6th. Another classic Old Town event!
