Where in Alexandria, Virginia Contest Rules and Information

Where in Alexandria, Virginia is a monthly contest from Red Brick Town testing your knowledge of the Alexandria, Virginia area.


Each week, I will post an image (or two) from a location where I have checked in recently on Swarm (Foursquare) or from some place very nearby. The winner for the month, based on scoring (see below), wins a gift card.

HINT: The photo(s) will not be posted on Swarm (Foursquare).


  1. To play, answer every Monday post titled ‘Where am I in Alexandria, Virginia’ in the comment field. NOTE: You must use a VALID e-mail address in the comment field (so that you can be contacted if you are the winner for the month).
  2. The week’s contest  is open from the time the Monday post goes live in the A.M. until the following Sunday at 6:00 PM.
  3. You can submit one answer each week. If you decide to change your answer, post another comment under the same name indicating you are making a change.


  1. For each correct answer each week, ten (10) points. If you answer incorrectly, make a change, and get the answer correct five (5) points. Otherwise, if you answer incorrectly, you will be awarded two (2) points.
  2. Three (3) bonus points are awarded for each week you try and answer regardless of whether or not you answer correctly.
  3. The winning score is your total amount divided by the number of weeks you have played for that specific month.
  4. Scores for the week and month will be posted each Sunday night.

Good luck and happy playing!
