For 3patch9

3patch (may I call you that?) -- I should also have mentioned on my Old Town sightseeing list the Gadsby's Tavern, a nicely restored 18th century tavern where you can eat an 18th century lunch (style of the food, not its age), and also see the lovely Georgian upstairs ballroom where 18th century dances were held. That room is a reproduction of the original, which was ripped out and sold to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY before the Alexandria historic preservation movement got going. The Museum refuses to return it -- sort of the Elgin Marbles of Northern Va.

Thanks so much for your help. The old tavern sounds like a fun place to see! We are really looking forward to seeing the Alexandria!
