Alexandria was spared from significant flooding this week after remnants of Hurricane Ida swept through the East Coast. The only flooding found was on lower King Street in Old Town, where businesses laid sandbags at windows and doorways.

“We’re open inside, but if you want to eat you’re probably going to have to come barefoot,” a hostess at Mai Thai told ALXnow on Wednesday.

Our top story this week was, for the second week in a row, on the recent brawl inside Alexandria City High School.

It’s a three-day weekend, and on Sunday the annual Old Town Festival of Speed & Style will bring crowds to marvel at classic and beautiful rides along King Street. Monday is Labor Day, and the city will operate on a holiday schedule.

In this week’s poll we asked how satisfied readers are with Alexandria City Public Schools since reopening on August 24. A majority (31%) reported being extremely unsatisfied with the school system, while 29% said ACPS has done a good job, 25% are extremely satisfied and 14% are unhappy overall.

Salon Meraki’s founding location at 1101 Queen Street will quadruple in size when it expands into a neighboring space this fall.

Kathleen Le opened her 900 square-foot nail salon on November 1, 2017, and hopes to keep the tradition alive with a November 1 opening at 300 N. Henry Street, which was previously occupied by ARC Document Solutions. She also owns a second salon at 320 King Street.

“Ever since I opened my salon, I always dreamed of expanding it to a bigger space,” Le told ALXnow. “Finally that opportunity came when the printing company moved out.”

The move will expand Le’s footprint to about 3,600 square feet at the corner of Queen and N. Henry Streets in Old Town. That means expanding to 19 pedicure chairs (up from six) and hiring new staff. Le will train employees without experience and prep them to take the State Board test to become certified nail technicians.

“The address has the numbers 1101, and I want to keep the November 1 tradition alive,” Le said. “If that doesn’t happen I do hope to open at around Christmas at the latest.”

After emigrating from Vietnam to the area in the mid-1990s with her family, Le embarked on a 25-year career as a nail technician before opening her own brick and mortar.

“We don’t treat clients like number,” Le said. “Most people say that all they really wanted was an escape. They spend 45 minutes or an hour with us, and we make them feel like a million bucks.”

Staff and clients at Salon Meraki wear face masks at all times, and clients are given a temperature check upon entry.

Monte Durham is plotting a television show set in his Old Town hair salon.

“We’re trying to get a sizzle reel together of Salon Monte for two production companies,” Durham told ALXnow. “One is with Ann Roberts‘ production company out of L.A., and the other is local. Who knows where that’s gonna land, but they are in the pipeline and we are seriously sitting down and speaking with them.”

Durham, the bridal image consultant and former star of Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, was filming Say Yes to the Prom in New York City when the pandemic struck in March 2020. Soon after that, his contract expired as the network abruptly went dark.

Durham said he signed a contract to start filming with Roberts, but that the pandemic put the project on hold.

“And here we go with this mask mandate again,” Durham said. “That may be happening, so we’re just gonna play it by ear. Nobody’s in a hurry. We want to make sure these that we’re stepping on solid stone when we’re doing this.”

Durham, who turns 65 this year, moved to Belle Haven and decided to go back to his roots as a hair stylist. He opened Salon Monte six months later, on September 12, 2020, which is the anniversary of Jackie Kennedy’s wedding to JFK. Durham is a Jackie Kennedy aficionado and even has a portrait of the former first lady in his personal studio.

“I’ve never been more excited, more driven and more motivated to make this work,” Durham said of the salon.
