Think you know your Alexandria, Virginia (Red Brick Town)?

Think you know your Alexandria, Virginia (Red Brick Town)? This is a weekly contest (April’s runs through May 1) with the winning points at the end of the month receiving a $50 gift card to Lena’s Wood-Fired Pizza + Tap (rules and scoring at link). Quite a few folks knew the answer to April’s week 1 photo. Scoring for week 1 was posted last night.

See if you can guess the location of this photo, located somewhere in Alexandria, Virginia. What we’re looking for is either 1) the business name or 2) the address of the building. Either of those answers will be correct. Enter your answer in the comments below.

NOTE: If you answered last week, you MUST use same name and email address in the comments section below to get the points.

CLUE(S): The photo is someplace near where I checked in on Swarm recently (See Foursquare history here too). It is nearby a favorite stop of mine. You can click on the photo for a closer look if need be. Last week’s was located in the Carlyle neighborhood – this photo is not.

Let us know your guess in the comments below! Scoring for this week will be posted Sunday night. Happy playing!
