Best Local Valentine’s Day Options — “We asked readers what they thought was the most romantic dining spot in the city. A few of the suggestions were Vermilion, Fontaine and The Wharf. Some suggested following up dinner with desserts from places like Alexandria Pastry Shop, Alexandria Cupcake and Blüprint Chocolatiers.” [Patch]

New Alexandria Tourism Campaign — “Tourism in Alexandria continues to be a major economic driver, and Visit Alexandria is launching a new marketing campaign to encourage even more visitors to come experience Alexandria’s charm. The campaign is targeted at overnight travelers who live outside the D.C. region.” [Alexandria Living]

Big Scholarship for Two T.C. Students — “The pair stood on stage in front of friends and family at a D.C. theater, where they were formally awarded Posse Foundation scholarships worth $250,000. Now, Wilmer Carranza and Madeleine Allen will head off to college this fall without having to give a second thought to tuition costs. They were two of six T.C. students to make the final round out of tens of thousands of applicants from across the United States.” [Gazette Packet]
