Christmas Restaurant Round-Up — “Below we’ve rounded up some options for meals around Alexandria. Some will offer special holiday menus, while others will be open for their usual dine-in and takeout menus.” [Patch]

Famous Alexandria Christmas Yard Goes Dark — “All of these details are important for you to know to understand why, when Vaughan recently found himself lying face down in a small creek in front of his house, unable to move his left leg, he cried. The tears weren’t for the pain of falling off a 16-foot ladder. That would hit him later. They were for the realization that the lights wouldn’t come on this year.” [Washington Post]

Jaguar Land Rover Dealership Announces Huge New Van Dorn Location — “For a long time, the Land Rover dealership on Duke Street has been bursting at its fence lines, and they are finally getting new digs on a six-acre parcel of land fronting Van Dorn Street in Alexandria, Virginia.” [Patch]
