THE DEL RAY GATEWAY NIGHT OF GIVING

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 26TH

The Del Ray Community Partnership has taken on a major improvement project that will be a wonderful additional to the Del Ray community. We, in PARKnership with the City, will be transforming the corner at Mt. Vernon and Commonwealth into a beautiful new Gateway which will include the Nancy Dunning Memorial Garden and a community Spray Park. Currently at this site is the Colasanto pool and a corner pocket park. The Community Partnership was able to apply for and obtain a matching grant for $48,000 from the city, to assist with Phase I development and construction of the current site, and while we have raised some money, we still need to raise just over $42,000 by June 2018. The Del Ray Citizens Association will be donating all of their proceeds from their Home & Garden Tour this year but we need to raise a lot more and this is where we could use your help.

We will be having a Del Ray Gateway Night of Giving on February 26th from 5-8 pm at Pork Barrel where we be selling raffle tickets for the opportunity to win one of 3-5 amazing gift baskets. For example we plan to have a basket of "Dining in Del Ray", "Wellness in Del Ray" and "Dogs in Del Ray".

*Proceeds from this great community activity will benefit The Del Ray Gateway, a collaboration of community members, business owners, and the City of Alexandria as we redevelop the triangle park at the corners of Mt. Vernon and Commonwealth Avenues. The development will include the Nancy Dunning Garden (NDG), in honor of Nancy Dunning and honoring all that she gave to her community. In addition to the NDG, the Colasanto Pool (which has been closed since 2010), will be reconstructed into a wonderful and artistic splash park for the community to enjoy!

EVENING STAR CAFE CELEBRATES BELL’S OBERON DAY 2018!

TUESDAY, MARCH 27TH @ 5:30 PM

They say winter isn't over until you have your first Bell's Oberon. If you agree, Evening Star Cafe invites you to toast the unofficial first day of spring. On Tuesday, March 27th, we’ll pour 8 different Bell’s Brewery beers, including the first kegs of this year’s Oberon Ale!

One of the brewery’s most beloved releases, Oberon Ale is a thirst quenching wheat beer that is perfect for the warm weather months. To celebrate the return of one of our favorite beers, our kitchen will serve a selection of Michigan-themed snacks, including Oberon-inspired donuts. If that weren’t enough, we’ll also offer complementary Oberon glassware and swag, while supplies last.

In addition to Oberon Ale, we’ll also pour rare kegs Mango Habanero Oberon Ale, Whiskey Barrel-Aged Cherry Stout and L’Appel du Vide: Dry-Hopped Session Ale.

There is no admission fee for this event. The event will be hosted upstairs in the No. 9 Lounge, but the beers will be available throughout the entire restaurant. All Bell’s Brewery drafts will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. pours.
