The new “entertainment venue” in the Seminary Plaza shopping center (4620 Kenmore Avenue) features a restaurant and bar along with a two-level laser tag arena, with some arcade games and VR attractions thrown into the mix.
The grand opening is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. with the ribbon cutting at 6 p.m. City officials are scheduled to attend, according to the Facebook page, but whether they will play laser tag is unclear.
The venue mainly focuses on drawing in groups — like birthday parties or corporate events — but staff said the full-service bar and restaurant, arcade games, and laser tag are all open to individuals as well.
Food at the restaurant are mainly sports bar staples like flatbread pizzas and assorted entrees, like meatball subs or tacos. The alcohol menu ranges from cocktails and beers to “slushie drinks.”
The laser tag arena is the centerpiece of Doyle’s Outpost, with a nearly 6,000-square-foot arena depicting a scene of apocalyptic destruction in D.C.: local icons in flames, helicopters flying overhead, the Lincoln Memorial in shambles — all the classics.
Individual laser tag games are $9 per person, $16 for two games, or $20 for three games. The laser tag arena can also be rented out for private events.

If you had a chance to enhance a child’s future with a time commitment of less than 2 hours a week, how would you respond? You have that opportunity right now to join over 200 Alexandrians as a reading tutor volunteer with the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC).
ATC tutors work with one child in kindergarten, first, or second grade in Alexandria public schools who need extra help with reading. Tutors meet with their Book Buddy 1-2 times each week for 30 minutes October-May at school, during school hours. Many struggling readers only receive one-on-one instruction through this program, and it makes all the difference. Last year, ATC served 195 children, of whom 82% ended the year reading on grade level and 96% made substantial reading gains. But the need is great, and we are still seeing learning lags from the pandemic.
This year, ATC plans to significantly increase the size of the program to reach over 250 students and to serve every elementary school in Alexandria. This is very exciting news, but we will only succeed if we can recruit more tutors. ATC trains you, matches you with a child, and provides ongoing lesson materials and support.
