Restonian On Your Side (tm): Airline Marketing Ploy to Invade Reston's Fake Downtown

Need to get away from Reston's resort-like atmosphere for a while? You might want to take your temperature to make sure you're not feverish or something, but in case you really want to leave, JetBlue is holding some sort of ticket "happy hour" at Reston's Fake Downtown this afternoon.

This Tuesday, October 7, the airline will hold a "Happy Jetting Happy Hour," at the Reston Town Center Pavilion from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm. JetBlue is offering more than 300 last-minute weekend trips from Dulles, at more than 50 percent off*. The flights, most of which are for this month, include trips to New York, LA and Florida.

* Update: JetBlue's Morgan Johnston just wrote in to tell us that the airline can't officially promise any specific discounts, but he does insist that people will "probably be able to afford a ticket with just the cash on hand."
Awesome! And since it's not United, there's a reasonable chance your pet and/or child might make it to your destination!
