Ned Devine's managed to get the Irish Village in Sterling through the county permitting process. I don't think that the county is anti-club, and certainly the area around DTC/Route 7/Route 28 could support such a use.

You know what else I'd think would do really well--an Oldie's Dance Club. 80's dance music one night, 60's another night, maybe even 50's on another night. A place like that would be hopping. Young people would go for the club scene and older folks for the nostalgia. A lot of rich 30-somethings out in the burbs would go to a place that plays the music they partied to in high school.

Speaking about our new minor league baseball team, looks like they should call it the Ashburn Dollar Bills. And the mascot should be Big Bucks!

Man, when I lived in NOVA, I didn't earn anywhere near to that amount of money. I bet Shah's commute to wherever he is going is brutal. Never been to Eyebar, but have been to H20 and a few others, it was fun time.

I have been trying to let this go, but I'm just really offended. If you're Asian, you're "hot" but if you're a "white girl," you're "pale." Of course, we're supposed to celebrate the fact that there aren't too many of those pale faces there. I'll bet normie wouldn't like it if I referred to the diverse crowd by derogatory terms related to the color of their skin (but I wouldn't) so cut out the racism.

Hey, speaking about Dulles Town Center, what's the new thing they're building on the mall side near the intersection of Atlantic and Rt. 7.? That's a fancy little drive they're putting in.

Going off topic for a second, but I never thought of pale as a derogatory word. I'm definitely pale, and I'm always getting compliments on it. I mean even in the summer I'm as white as can be. It's a good look for me. I've got the long black hair, the big blue eyes, the whole girl from the midwest look. Even my kids' friends say I look hot!

OK, back to the topic.

We ended up in Ashburn Village, we lucked out on a pretty nice deal for our townhouse. I'm married at 25yo, but we still go downtown and bar-hopping quite a bit, so that's why it's a bit of a hike to get to the city. I'm not sure how I'd feel about Ashburn if I were single, but I definitely feel a little young for the area. It's a nice neighborhood though, and we'll grow into the family atmosphere while we're here a few years down the road.

We're slowly meeting some younger friends out this way though that prefer Reston TC or staying local, which has been a nice change. For the most part, the biggest change is just planning ahead to meet up with friends downtown though instead of just going on a whim. The hour drive is only rough when heading home after last call from DC, I'm generally pretty tired by then and have to pay close attention at the bars to ensure I can drive safely home.

Brambleton would be a nice area to buy if you can work around the distance to downtown. I have no other real complaints about Ashburn at all - it's safe, clean, newer, neighbors are nice people, has most amenities you'd need. We're happy with out decision here.

This is part of why I like where I live so much (Fair Lakes). In most cities, a job in the burbs would mean living in a boring bedroom community. In NOVA, the tech corridor means that places like Reston, Loudoun, and Fairfax have their share of families, but are also teeming with young single professionals like myself . I don't think I could take the suburbs in a lot of cities. Here, I rather enjoy them!
