Sheriff’s Office warns of phone scammers — “If you receive a call from someone saying they are from the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office (or any other law enforcement agency) and that you have to pay them money, hang up. Scammers will try a variety of approaches to intimidate and coerce people into giving them money. But actual sheriffs’ offices in Virginia will never call you and demand money.” [Twitter]

Bug appetit: These city residents are eating cicadas — “This year, you won’t find cicadas on the menu at restaurants in Alexandria — serving bugs is a health code violation and isn’t allowed in Virginia.  But for the adventurous, there are a lot of ways to cook cicadas at home. Brian Schwatken, who lives in Alexandria, cooked and ate a cicada a few years ago — and liked it.” [Alexandria Living]
