Bourbon Donuts, Grill and Chill Packages, and Other Alexandria Specials for Memorial Day

With Visit Alexandria pivoting from external tourism to keeping locals engaged, the city-sponsored organization has written up a guide for celebrating Memorial Day (Monday, May 25) in Alexandria.

Northern Virginia, including Alexandria, is not scheduled to start lifting coronavirus restrictions until May 29. There are still more restaurants and retail locations starting to reopen as they adjust to social distancing rules. The Visit Alexandria site has a list of local eateries with Memorial Day specials. Jast as with Cinco De Mayo, some local restaurants are offering interesting or unusual items.

Fresh off their margarita donut, Elizabeth’s Counter (né Sugar Sheck) will have a bourbon donut available over Memorial Day weekend, from May 22-May 25.

Hummingbird Bar and Kitchen in the Hotel Indigo (220 S. Union Street) is offering a grill and chill bag serving four, including a shrimp cocktail, grilled artichokes, a fully loaded baked potato, four steaks with garlic butter, brownies and a bottle of wine for $200. The bags have to be reserved by Thursday, May 21, by calling 703-566-1355. The bags can be picked up on Saturday, May 23.

Meanwhile, other local retail spots are offering special items for Memorial Day, including:
