Alexandria, Virginia boasts a wide-variety of “foodie establishments” from formal dining to comfortably casual. Spotluck, an awesome mobile app from a local Washington, D.C. startup, has launched its Alexandria Hub today (Friday, November 20, 2015). If you’re looking for a great place to eat in Alexandria, Virginia, this app is a mobile convenience tool that can help you out.

Spotluck is a FREE mobile app that helps users discover local restaurants (and provides great incentives to head out to eat). App users get one spin each day in each hub. After a spin, hungry diners are offered a substantial discount at a randomly-selected, but certified local restaurant. Discounts fluctuate based on day, time, weather and other factors that affect occupancy. Spotluck goes beyond filling seats in local restaurants. It creates a neighborhood buzz that all local business owners can benefit from.

Here’s a video from NBC Washington on how Spotluck works.

They have partnered with ten local restaurants right in Alexandria, Virginia (and will be adding more very soon):

ICYMI, every year King Street Blues in Alexandria holds an event where 10% of all food sales and bartender tips goes to the Yellow Ribbon Fundraiser. This is just a snippet of the night; thanks to all those that supported and came to the event!

There are a lot of ways to help the Yellow Ribbon Fund.  The fund serves the injured wounded warriors coming back from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Well done!
